School Education Programs

School excursions
Located two hours south of Perth on the foreshore of Koombana Bay in Bunbury, the Centre is surrounded by a diverse range of marine and coastal habitats including the Indian Ocean, Koombana Bay, the Leschenault Estuary, the Leschenault Inlet, and the white mangrove colony. Each habitat represents a unique natural resource and has provided us with the perfect opportunity to design a range of educational experiences for your students. These activities include both incursions and excursions and the content within each has been designed to not only be interactive, entertaining and educational, but also to focus on Science and Biology as described within the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority (ACARA) materials (v5.0 May 2013). Within the ACARA model, our program content for all school years cover the science strands of Science and Understanding, Science as a Human Endeavour and Science Inquiry Skills inclusive of Cross Curriculum Priorities such as Sustainability and Aboriginal Histories and Cultures. Please feel free to download our Education Booklet 2014-15 For any bookings or enquiries please email
