Welcome to North Star’s Marine Discovery Centre Hastings Point, one of Australia’s largest, privately funded museums. Its primary focus is teaching people how they can play a role in protecting and safeguarding our precious marine environment for future generations.
The recently refurbished Centre is a showcase of state-of-the-art light and sound technology, fitted with interactive digital terminals and world-class marine and coastal science displays.
The Marine Discovery Centre is designed to inspire and educate people of all ages. It helps visitors to understand and care for the aquatic environment, its inhabitants and vital eco-systems and learn about the unprecedented challenges of climate change, marine litter and plastic waste, pollutants and fishing.
The Centre hosts educational programs for students and North Star Holiday Resort guests. Individuals and families are also welcome to visit the Centre year-round.
