Fly Through

Soar through Discovery for a sneak preview of some of the hands-on science excitement you’ll experience at Discovery

Thank you to the Australian Army Drone Racing Team

Let’s fly!

Hands on Exhibits

With over 100 fascinating exhibits to explore, Discovery is sure to have something to capture every imagination!

Be sure to look out for the whacky mirrors that make you look really strange, see how a pair of thongs can be used to play a tune on the Thong-A-Phone, listen as your own voice echoes back at you through a tube that is almost as long as Discovery itself, shoot ping pong balls amazing distances only using the air that surrounds them or spell out a message using the Air Cannon, and that’s just to name a few!


Explore the wonders of astronomy and the limitless phenomena in the sky above from the comfort of our Planetarium.

Visitors will be guided through the cosmos, stopping off at each of the planets in the solar system and learning a little about each of them before a guided tour of the night sky.

Our Planetarium is currently closed for renovations.

Vertical Slide

For the more courageous amongst us, parents and children alike can line up to be dropped down our Vertical Slide!

With a drop of seven metres and falling at a speed of 30-40km per hour, the Vertical Slide is definitely not for the faint hearted!

Entry to the Vertical Slide is included in the Discovery general admission and all sliders must be at least five years of age. Remember to bring your socks!


Our newly refurbished Early Learning Space, Kaleidoscope, is a tactile, sensory and interactive space for babies to 6 year olds to safely investigate, play and learn.

Little tinkerers can experiment, build and innovate with our block building space and magnetic wall. Our upgraded mine combines imaginative role play with recent Bendigo History.

Experiment with light and shadow in our Rainbow Box, and delight in endless reflections in our Human Kaleidoscope.
