What a great day out! Catch low tide, a wander along the rock and then (well either side of it really) drop into the Discovery Centre ($10). It has informative story boards, curious photos, specimen jars, a "sound corridor" so you can hear what goes on at the marine world and best of all a touch pool, filled with all sorts of creatures. Two PhD students unobtrusively checked in with us every now and then to greatly enhanced our experience. Five stars.
Thoroughly recommend this little museum. My kids (4 and 6) loved it and the staff made a real effort to make it a fun and educational experience. They loved picking up starfish, sea cucumbers and touching sea urchins. The microscope was great fun for them too!
We spent a good hour at the discovery centre and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The staff were very knowledgeable and good with the kids. The highlights were the microscope where we got to see live sea creatures magnified on a big screen, we got to touch creatures in their touch and feel pool, and my daughter got to feed an octopus. I would recommend this if you have kids, it was great fun...(and reasonably priced).
A great mini museum. A must visit to enhance your visit to Leigh. A great complement to your glass-bottomed trip. The museum have a sound corridor to experience underwater life, and also an opportunity to be up and close to the marine animals; some of which you can touch.
What a fantastic experience. Inexpensive and a hands on experience for the kids where you can touch starfish and play with the sea creatures. Staff were friendly and seemed genuinely interested in the experience. Parking onsite despite the signs saying there is no parking. $20 for a family pass.
