The Marine Discovery Centre aims to provide inspirational discovery learning experiences whilst empowering students to actively protect South Australia’s coastal and marine environments.
We are the only coastal and marine educational facility for school students and the broader community in South Australia.
The Marine Discovery Centre features interactive learning stations covering topics such as sustainable fishing, applying sustainable practices at home, Aboriginal culture and the importance of preserving our unique marine environments.
Our aquariums feature local marine wildlife species and we provide engaging beachside marine trails to complement the Centre’s indoor educational facilities.
We host more than 7000 students from more than 100 schools each year. Bookings are essential. Our school group visiting hours are 9.45am - 2pm Monday to Thursday's during school term.
The centre is available out of hours for all events from hosted birthday parties to sponsored and private events.
