Island Bay Marine Education Centre

A large variety of live habitat displays including many different species of marine life from the rocky shores of Wellington's unique South Coast.

Programmes at the Centre foster respect and appreciation for local marine life and explore the role humans play in this and other habitats.

The School Visits Programme has been designed to meet the requirements of the new Science Curriculum. Activities can be tailored to suit the needs of any age group and are linked to one or more of the six science learning strands. Located 10 minutes drive from downtown Wellington.
