The Future

Due to finish November 2018

In May 2017 the Dolphin Discovery Centre began its redevelopment to improve and add to their 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. At the same time that this is happening the City of Bunbury is constructing a Coastline Revetment Wall for coastal protection, Department of Parks and Wildlife are building across the road and the Waterfront Project has begun with new landscaping and bridge work along Koombana Bay.  So our area looks like an industrial zone BUT in fact we are still operating full steam throughout this whole process. Our eco cruises will operate year round subject to weather and our swim tours will be operating next summer as usual. Much of the disruption will be finished by December and there will be 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 November 2018 however elements will be progressively delivered. Entry to the DDC will be free over the winter months where most disruption is likely to occur so pop in and see what is happening. At times we might have alternate access to the beach for any dolphin visits and boat departures over the next 8 months. There are a lot of exciting times ahead and we appreciate your support through the process of building our new Café and Discovery Centre.
