The Gravity Discovery Centre is fast becoming one of Perth’s most popular tourist destinations.
Only a short drive north of the Perth CBD, the Gravity Discovery Centre offers a wide variety of activities for all ages and interest groups, from families to backpackers and eco tourists. Situated amongst pristine bushland in a world wide recongnised biodiversity hotspot, the amazing Flora and Fauna you may encounter on one of our bush walks is truly breathtaking, especially the wildflowers during spring.
Children as well as adults will be thrilled when climbing the Leaning Tower of Gingin. Reaching the very top and dropping water balloons or just enjoying the view is a memorable adventure for the whole family!
For those among you who love art, especially indigenous art, don’t miss our wonderful exhibitions in the Cosmology Gallery.However, science is the reason we are here!
