Dive into an aquatic adventure like no other at Waurn Ponds these school holidays – we’re bringing the ocean to you.

Immerse yourself in a live educational aquarium display and learn more about Victoria’s coastal habitats and their rich biodiversity.

View and touch live marine animals in a safe, ethical environment and discover some of the beautiful and bizarre creatures that live in Western Port and Port Phillip Bays.

With shows commencing at 11am and 2pm, get ready to go face-to-fin with a potbelly seahorse, a prickly globe fish or a crazy cow fish – check out some lazy shark pups, stingrays and slimy sea snails – the list goes on.

This is sure to be an aquatic experience like no other.

Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre is partnering with Surfcoast Wildlife Rescue to help with much needed supplies to support their mission. A donation receptacle will be located outside The Reject Shop for the duration of the school holidays where you are encouraged to donate new or used items.

Surfcoast Wildlife Rescue is a volunteer-run service that helps animals in the Surf Coast area. They operate 24/7 through a helpline and assist animals in need. For more details visit
