Good kids activity in cellar level with digging for fossils activity. Lots of marine biology specimens to view under microscopes. Puzzles and play room for little kids.

Reasonably priced and loads of information about whales and dolphins, this is a great place to spend an hour or two. Interesting 3D video about whale watching but would probably benefit from more AVs with less reading!

Such a lovely centre to visit!

We were greeted by a really lovely man as we entered who informed us about what there was to look at and had a nice chat with us!

There is an upstairs section for kids, a general section for everyone to look at with lots of information on whaling, whales and marine life and a downstairs section too.

As a Sea Shepherd Volunteer in the Hobart chapter, I particularly loved the Steve Irwin ship display located downstairs. I spotted a few friends and familiar faces in the photos, videos and stories there and got to see a few more bits and pieces to do with Sea Shepherd.

Definitely, a place the whole family can visit and enjoy! Thanks once again!

I had some time to kill so thought I would have a wander through this local tourist attraction. Whilst it is aimed more at children I still found it interesting. Staff where happy & helpful. The history of Victor Harbor, information about marine life and local biodiversity combined with a few stories definitely made it a worthy visit.
