Twelve Days of Christmas


Tuesday 5 December –  Sunday 17 December

This year we’ve jam-packed our 12 Days of Christmas with so many goodies that we’ve had to extend our hours!  Between the 5th and 17th of December, the Discovery Space will be running fantastic festive activities daily with extended opening hours on until 6pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Join us across these 12 days to see visits from Symbio Wildlife Park, Science Centre, HONK! and STEAM Punks by Wollongong Library. Have a photo with Santa, make presents in one of our workshops and discover new art skills with our Guided Art program.
