With loads of interactive exhibits to explore, you will not know what to try first at the Discovery Science & 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 do not forget to play a tune on the thong-a-phone!

Some Discovery favourites include:

Bendigo Planetarium: 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, venturing to places you've never been before. Each 20 minute show explores the wonders of astronomy and showcases the limitless phenomena in the sky above.

Vertical Slide: Discovery is famous for the Southern hemisphere's tallest Vertical Slide. If you're a thrill seeker, the Vertical Slide is definitely something that you will want to try. With a sheer drop of seven metres you will fall at a speed of 30 to 40 kilometres per hour! All sliders must be at least five years of age.

Kaleidoscope: 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: If you are looking for an unusual gift, then the Discovery Gift Shop is the place to go. The Discovery Gift Shop stocks fascinating educational items that are sure to keep kids busy for hours.

During Victorian School holidays the Discovery Science & Technology Centre run special science and planetarium shows as well as themed workshops.
