Discovery Science & Technology Centre

Amusement and Theme Parks

With loads of interactive exhibits to explore, you will not know what to try first at the Discovery Science and Technology Centre.

Be sure to look out for the whacky mirrors that make you look really strange, the echoing chamber that repeats your words a thousand times over and don’t forget to play a tune on the thong-a-phone.

Sit back, relax on a bean bag, and become immersed in the world above as you are taken on a guided journey through the cosmos, in the Bendigo Planetarium. Each 20 minute show explores the wonders of astronomy and showcases the limitless phenomena in the sky above.

Discovery is famous, or maybe we should say infamous, for its 7.2 metre tall vertical slide. From this sheer drop of you will fall at a speed of 30 to 40 kilometres per hour.

Think you are too young for science? Think again. For the young scientist under six, learn the basic principles of maths and science through the colourful and fun exhibits in Kaleidoscope.

The Discovery Gift Shop stocks fascinating educational items that are sure to keep kids busy for hours. During Victorian School holidays the centre runs special science and planetarium shows and themed workshops.
