In 2007 Crossley Architects were engaged by Genesis Productions to design and document the Bundaberg Turtle Discovery Centre, Queensland, to incorporate new requirements and meet with budgetary constraints.
Genesis developed an interpretive theme of “Timeless Turtles” to encompass both fresh water and marine turtles of the region. The premise behind “Timeless Turtles” was that it needed to compliment the live experience of Mon Repos, a noted marine turtle nesting rookery on the coast at Bundaberg. Mon Repos currently offers limited opportunities to visitors, whereas the Discovery Centre was designed to provide a year-round, 7-day-a-week turtle experience.
Work on this project continued until the completion of construction documentation, but has since been terminated prior to commencement of construction.
