Plan your next visit to Discovery!
The Discovery Science and Technology Centre is a not-for-profit educational and inspirational facility which 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. Discovery’s vision is to break down barriers and make STEM accessible, inclusive and representative for all, by inspiring and nurturing scientific curiosity.
Discovery was established 26 years ago in a beautiful historic Railway Goods Shed near the Bendigo Railway Station.
