Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre

Our facilities include a visitor's aquarium, student laboratory and classroom as well as being surrounded by a diverse range of habitats, ideal for field activities such as rock pool rambles and mudflat activities within our intertidal zones.
The centre is open for school and group bookings. The centre is closed to the general public
Opening times for the general public are selected Mondays 10 - 11am (please call 5258 3344 to book) and during our school holiday programs. Our programs and dates will be available on line before each school holiday.
