The guided Rockpool Discovery Tours are the highlight - a hands-on investigation of the genuinely ‘wild’ marine life that lives on the rockplatforms around

** Note: The Underwater Bondi Experience Centre in the front of Bondi Pavilion has had to close because of funding difficulties – it was open for 4.5 years and educated over 30,000 visitors during that time about the wonders of Sydney’s hidden underwater world – and most importantly; how to look after it. We are very proud of what it achieved and are very thankful to all our wonderful partners who helped realise the dream . Apologies for any inconvenience but we tried our hardest…….
