“Dolphin Marine Conservation Park is the only zoological park in New South Wales exhibiting dolphins and the two daily presentations are the Coffs Coast region’s star attraction.
Through the fun and educational ‘hands-on’ experience we offer with our animals, Dolphin Marine Conservation Park hopes to inspire life changing habits within our guests which will make a real and measurable difference in the conservation of the marine environment.”

"We allow disabled people in the water with our animals, although we need to ensure your safety. To address this issue, we will ask you some questions. We will need to know if you are mobile and can follow direction from our trainers, if not we will ask that you have your personal carer in the water to assist you, free of charge.
We offer 'Special' experiences all year round, but if you want to do it in the peak holiday periods, it can be more than triple what it would cost on the shoulder and off peak periods. Therefore, we ask that you try to book your experience in our shoulder and off peak seasons, which are outside all school holidays and not from about mid December to the end of January."Mobility accessibility further information:
The following are excerpts from Havewheelchairwilltravel.net:
"Glass windows make for good accessible viewing for young children and wheelchair users.
Paths and ramping make Dolphin Marine Magic accessible. When heading to the Marine Discovery Presentation head to the left of the building to the ramp on that side. It’s the most accessible way to get to the show.
Wheelchair seating for the Marine Discover Presentation is at the front and to the side of the grandstand. BJ had a good view as he’s pretty tall. Children in a wheelchair may have an obscured view due to the height of the dolphin pool.
The turtle pool may be too high for many wheelchair users to see.
An accessible stand-alone bathroom is available."Other accessibility information:
