The Dolphin Discovery Center's recent makeover has elevated it into a tourist hotspot of the South West. A place to be enjoyed by all age groups, the centre makes for a lovely day out in Bunbury.

It was originally built in 1994 to allow the public to interact, understand and enjoy the dolphins that live in Koombana Bay and visit the centre's "interaction zone" for food and attention.

Nowadays the centre offers a broad range of activities. There is still the interaction zone, as well as the interpretive centre, dolphin eco-cruises and swimming with dolphins.

I visited the centre not long after it re-opened and it was packed out, so busy that we couldn't get a table at the cafe. However, we did enjoy exploring the interpretive centre, especially seeing the turtles.



The centre is also involved in marine research, with a specific focus on dolphins, turtles and artificial reefs. The centre is all round fantastic and provides an educational and enjoyable experience for everyone.
