Fisheries Victoria provides education and eco-tourism services through the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre in Queenscliff. Located on the shores of Swan Bay in Queenscliff approximately one and half hours from Melbourne, our centre provides a unique location to learn about the plants and animals that inhabit our coast and marine environment.

The Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre provides curriculum-based education for early childhood, school and tertiary groups as well as programs for the general community.

Our facilities include a visitor’s aquarium, student laboratory, and classroom. We are also ideally located for field activities being surrounded by a diverse range of habitats including rocky shores, mudflats, salt marshes, seagrass meadows, mangroves, sand dunes and temperate reefs. The majority of activities are conducted in Marine National Parks and Sanctuaries.
