Get up close to Eden’s sea life at the Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre.

The Sapphire Coast Marine Discovery Centre will entertain and educate the whole family.  It has live aquaria, a very popular touch tank where you can get up close and personal with live marine animals, beautiful video footage, microscopes, a beach combing table and loads of information about the temperate marine environment.

With qualified marine scientists on staff, there are indoor and outdoor activities that will fill the family with wonder:  enjoy a Rocky Shore Ramble or guided Snorkel Tour or the kids can participate in indoor educational craft activities during school holidays.

Located in the popular Snug Cove Wharf precinct, the Centre is open from 10am – 4pm Monday to Saturday during School Holidays and 10am – 3pm Monday to Friday during school term (closed Public Holidays). The Centre will open outside these hours for a booking of 10 or more.

The Centre is a rarity where children are not only allowed to touch the exhibits but are actively encouraged to do so.

“The kids were so entertained with hands-on activities, the touch tank is the best!”
