"I was so pleased and excited to arrive at Lady Elliot Island for our latest visit and find the Education Centre had been redesigned and renovated. It looked amazing! It looked fresh and exciting but most importantly for my students, it was extremely informative. The pictures are accurate and taken by visiting researchers and give a good indication of the surrounding environment." - Kelly Goodingham - Marine Studies Teacher, St Teresa's Catholic College
