With over 100 interactive exhibits to explore, you won’t know what to try first at Discovery. Be sure to look out for the whacky mirrors that make you look really strange, or the echoing chamber that repeats your words a thousand times over, and don’t forget to play a tune on the thong-a-phone!
Some popular Discovery favorites also include:

Bendigo Planetarium: Sit back and relax, on a bean bag, and become immersed in the world above as we take you on a guided journey through the cosmos, venturing to places you’ve never been before. Planetarium shows can be seen daily at 1:30pm on weekdays and 11:30am and 1:30pm on weekends and public holidays.

Vertical Slide: Have you ever experienced zero gravity? Discovery is famous for the southern hemisphere’s tallest Vertical Slide. With a sheer drop of seven metres you will fall at a speed of 30-40km per hour! All sliders must be at least five years of age. You can plummet down the Vertical Slide at 11am, 1pm and 3pm daily.

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

Curious Kids: Are you aged 3-5 and looking for a science adventure sprinkled with fun? Then come along to Curious Kids. A Curious Kids session consists of ‘story time’ followed by an activity in The Lab. Curious Kids is held on the first and third Monday of each month during school terms at 11:00am.
