MDC NSW Bondi

Web site: www.marinediscovery.org.au

The Marine Discovery Centre over-looking Bondi Beach offers hands-on Rockpool excursions for schools of all levels.

Our Marine Biologist Guides will ensure your class not only achieves the syllabus outcomes but also has a fun day full of learning! Guided Rock pool Discovery Tours are the highlight, a hands-on investigation of the amazing marine life that lives on the rock platforms around Sydney. Discover the structure, function and adaptations of local marine organisms; learn sustainable recreational fishing practices; investigate properties of seawater using Hydrometers; discover our Aboriginal heritage through rock engravings and then link it all together by looking at man’s impact on our local environments through fun and education games on the beach.

This is combined with a visit to the Underwater Bondi Experience, which is a walk-through simulation of a 2,000 dive tour around Bondi Bay using a combination of real fish (including baby sharks) in large camouflaged aquaria that are set into the world’s first re-creation of an actual dive site; together with a virtual reality dive sequence to transport you out there and an amazing 20 minute filmic tour around the bay to complete the journey. The very realistic Stormwater Drain at the end provides a vivid call to action; perfect for inspiring young minds with motivating “MDC Missions” – like “Have a Plastic Free Day!”
