The Marine Discovery Centre was a finalist in the 'Working Together Award'

Established in 1997, the Marine Discovery Centre has emerged as a beacon of marine science education in South Australia.  

Today, with an annual visitation of 10,000 individuals through school and community visits, the Centre fosters environmental consciousness and cultural appreciation in South Australians. 

Through engaging marine exhibits and workshops highlighting Indigenous knowledge, the Centre encourages scientific curiosity and instils a profound respect for the ancient wisdom of Australia's First Peoples in managing marine ecosystems.

In addition to a Certificate of Commendation for the Green Adelaide Pelzer Prize.
