Established in 1995 within a beautiful historic Railway Goods Shed near the Bendigo Railway Station, the Discovery Science and Technology Centre is a not-for-profit educational and inspirational facility.

Discovery has come to be seen as both a centre for learning and a place where science is hands-on and fun for regional families and visitors. Our vision is to break down barriers and make STEM accessible, inclusive and representative for all, by inspiring and nurturing scientific curiosity.
