Kindergarten/Early

These programs are a fun way for youngsters to learn about their marine environment. Hands-on involvement and seeing where the rubbish goes down the 'magic drain' is amazing. Young children 'see' that all drains do lead to the sea and what they drop on the ground really does affect dolphins and all our living marine treasures. Rock pools can also be explored as well - either get wet outside, or do it inside. It's up to you and your group. Everyone comes away happy, enthused and satisfied. At our centre in Hastings, we can host ages from 4 to 94. Our theatre comfortably seats up to 60 people, is fully air-conditioned and wheel-chair accessible. Plus, we have ample, free, off-street parking (very coach friendly).  Download brochure here.

We know how important it is for you, and your school community, to know that your students will have an exciting, worthwhile, engaging, safe and value-for-money experience with DRI. Our programs are guaranteed that your students will return to your classroom enthused and motivated! At our centre in Hastings, we can host ages from 4 to 94.

Secondary

Our programs can be designed to meet the curriculum needs of individual schools. The DRI Education team members are fully qualified and have nearly a hundred years of teaching experience between them. We know the pressures on teachers to provide a safe, value-for-money excursion that leaves your students enthused, engaged and raring to get back into the class room to learn more. Whether it's an excursion or an incursion, DRI knows it's what best suits your students is what will engage them.  At our centre in Hastings, we can host ages from 4 to 94. Our theatre comfortably seats up to 60 people, is fully air-conditioned and wheel-chair accessible. Plus, we have ample, free, off-street parking (very coach friendly).

Adult/Community

Suitable for Probus, Rotary, community groups etc. The programs that our educators put on for community groups always start with a bang! Video footage begins on the wide-screen in our theatre showing some of Victoria's living marine treasures. These are images you will have not seen before, as they are from DRI's researchers and supporters. For an hour, see and learn about the amazing underwater creatures of Western Port and Port Phillip. Often the comment we hear after the program is "Well, I didn't know that, and I've lived here for years."  At our centre in Hastings, we can host ages from 4 to 94. Our theatre comfortably seats up to 60 people, is fully air-conditioned and wheel-chair accessible.

Groups can easily make a day of it on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula.
