Pop-up Marine Discovery Centre @ the Whyalla Library

June 16 until July 6

The marine discovery centre allows you to discover Whyalla's unique marine life without getting wet. The display includes a touch table with skulls and shells, a microscope to get a closer look at things like sand and coral, discovery sand pits for the little ones as well as information about local marine life such as cuttlefish, samphire and dolphins. School groups welcome. Children visiting outside of school hours can bring their Children's University Passbook to be stamped.


Self-drive idea

while you are at the library loan a book on marine life and further your discovery experience. If you have time take a drive to the marina, to discover dolphins that call Whyalla home, or head to Eight Mile Creek, Cowleds Landing Sanctuary Zone.
