The Marine Discovery Centre at North Star is designed to inspire and educate. It aims to help people, young and old, to understand and care for the aquatic environment, its inhabitants and vital eco-systems, and learn about the challenges of climate change, marine litter, plastic waste and pollutants.
The Marine Discovery Centre, one of the largest, privately funded marine education facilities in Australia, is a showcase of world-class marine and coastal science displays, state-of-the-art light and sound technology and interactive digital terminals designed to enhance the learning experience. The Centre also has purpose-built space for lectures, seminars, business events and gatherings.
The Marine Discovery Centre is open to resort guests, the public and school groups. See the website for opening times.
Each week, one of the passionate Marine Discovery Centre eco-guides will conduct a two-hour presentation where you can immerse yourself in the wonders of the deep, and the shallows too!
After the presentation, you are welcome to spend some more time exploring the Centres showcase of state-of-the-art light and sound technology, interactive digital terminals and marine and coastal science displays before heading to the onsite restaurant for lunch.
