We are undertaking some construction, but we are STILL OPEN until April 30th, after this time we will only be doing Dolphin Eco Cruises while our new building is finished.
In May 2017 we began our redevelopment to improve and add to our existing facilities. Construction work began and our volunteer building and research room has been moved off its existing site to the block next door in preparation for our building the new Café/Restaurant.
Our Dolphin Eco Cruises will operate year round subject to weather and our swim tours will be operating next summer as usual. We have new assets along Koombana Bay including a substantial playground, additional parking , a kiosk and a beach auditorium. The entire process for the DDC redevelopment including the new interpretive experience will be completed by December 2018.
There are a lot of exciting times ahead and we appreciate your support through the process of building our new Café and Discovery Centre.
The Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury WA is 90 minutes south of Perth. Koombana Bay is home to local wild Bottlenose Dolphins who regularly visit the interaction zone at peak times during the year. Swim with Wild Dolphins or Dolphin Boat Cruises are a great opportunity to interact with the dolphins in their own environment. The philosophy behind our centre is to promote research, conservation and education of the Bottlenose Dolphins and other native marine life. The centre operates October to April 30th 8am - 4pm. We will reopen again in December 2018.
As Australia's premier wild dolphin destination you can visit the centre and learn more about these magnificent creatures, take a Dolphin Eco Cruise around the Bay or interact with the dolphins in their own environment on a Swim on the Wild Side Tour.
The Dolphin Discovery Centre up until the end of April 2018 is home to a discovery pool, aquariums, 360 degree digital dolphinarium, scheduled guided site tour, 3D & 2D movies, cafe and souvenir shop, so there is something for everyone.
There is also the Interaction Zone where the wild dolphins often come to interact with visitors - There will be a brief time where this may not be available due the construction of the City of Bunbury's Revetment Wall.
