"Come along with some friends and enjoy this unique experience, also bring something warm to drink afterwards as it can be a bit chilly once you get out" 

"There is a Virtual Reality 3d experience down at the visitor information centre if you don't want to jump in the water where you can experience the cuttlefish in a warmer setting" Chris said.

The VR experience will also be on display over the next two weekends at the Curious Cuttles - Science in the pub night, where you can book in for dinner and enjoy a night to share the wonder and curiosity of the incredible Giant Australian Cuttlefish of Whyalla, with resident experts, researchers and artists. Children are also welcome with a 'Kids Korner' set up with colouring in competition and games.
