We just visited the Deep Ocean Exhibition at Queensland Museum - this is an excellent hands on educational experience for families, with a clever Octonauts Trail for the kids to follow. There are heaps of interactive games and an entire area designed especially for toddlers and preschoolers. Highly recommended.
