The Dolphin Discovery Centre in Bunbury WA is 90 minutes south of Perth. Koombana Bay is home to local wild Bottlenose Dolphins who regularly visit the interaction zone at peak times during the year. Swim with Wild Dolphins or Dolphin Eco Cruises are a great opportunity to interact with the dolphins in their own environment. The philosophy behind our centre is to promote research, conservation and education of the Bottlenose Dolphins and other native marine life. The new Discovery Centre is due to open in December 2018, includes a $2 million upgrade to our interpretive experience with an expanded range of larger and professionally themed aquariums as well as interpretation of the Koombana Bay environment and its history – geological, indigenous, marine and contemporary. It will be an immersive experience that will include activity centres, interactive displays, feeding programs and tours that will appeal to all age groups. The aquariums will tell the story of our region from freshwater river to offshore reef and will feature the marine plants and animals of our temperate zone. It will provide a unique experience that uses embedded technology along with natural displays to create a memorable experience for visitors that compliments the wild dolphin experience of our beach interaction zone and dolphin tours. The new facilities also include a new Cafe/Restaurant and Souvenir Shop.
