Marine Discovery Centre gives students of all ages the opportunity to learn about, discover and care for the marine environment through diverse shore and sea based programs. The Marine Discovery Centre is a Department of Education facility and part of Woodbridge School. Built over the water, the Centre is ideally located to help Tasmanian students discover and learn about their marine environment.
The Centre houses fully equipped teaching areas, an aquarium room, marine pond and touch tanks, as well as displays of marine life, human impacts and fishing technology. The centre also operates a research vessel, the Penghana. The Marine Discovery Centre’s educational programs are hands on and aligned to the Australian Curriculum.
The Marina Discovery Centre is open to the public on Monday afternoons from 2.30 – 4.30 pm during government school terms.
