Discovery & Interpretive Centre

Our Marine Discovery & Interpretive Centre showcases the world of the Bunbury Dolphins and their marine friends. Learn and immerse yourself in their environment. An expanded range of themed fish, coral aquariums and our amazing 360-degree Digital Dolphinarium, as well as an interpretation of the Koombana Bay environment and its history – geological, indigenous, marine and contemporary. Also available as Gift Voucher!

It is an immersive experience, with activity centres, interactive displays, live feeding programs and tours that appeal to all age groups. The aquariums tell the story of our region from freshwater river to offshore reef and feature the marine plants and animals of our temperate zone. The Centre provides a unique experience that uses embedded technology along with natural displays to create a memorable experience for visitors that complements the wild dolphin experience of our beach Interaction Zone and Dolphin Tours. Octopus, Nemo & Dory, Sharks and Friends are awaiting your visit.

Safe 50% on Entry Price to the Interpretive Centre if you book it together with a Dolphin Eco Cruise or Swim with the dolphin tour!

Please note we do not keep dolphins in captivity – you can experience wild dolphins in our free Dolphin Interaction Zone at the beach or on our Dolphin Eco Cruise or Dolphin Swim Tour.
