Imagination meets the sea this summer

This summer unleash your creativity in a world where imagination meets the sea. Step inside our indoor maker space and play zone to encounter a wonderland of giant inflatables, hands-on artmaking, evocative sensory installations, and discovery zones. 

Venture outside to join a workshop in exploring the harbour using remotely operated submersibles, peer beneath the surface at the floating science pontoon and relax under misting umbrellas. Mingle with the giant shark sculptures and contemporary artworks that form part of our upcoming exhibition On Sharks & Humanity.

Check back soon for our full program, to be released in November.
