Discovery Centre will reopen as soon as possible

The situation with COVID-19 is constantly evolving and at Telethon Kids we are working closely with the relevant authorities to respond appropriately. The health and safety of our communit​y is at all times our number one priority.

To ensure the safety of kids and their families, we’ve made the decision to close the Discovery Centre until further notice. In the meantime we invite you to explore our Fun for Kids page, providing a platform for kids to experience the joy of science through a large range of fun activites.

Any questions can be directed to our Discovery Centre team on or 6319 1000 or through the contact page.
