Great experience, loved everything. Meeting Rosy the Boa snake was even better, especially when Laura the girl that works there noticed our interest while watching the only snake they have over there

Overcrowded despite covid
If there was any COVID-19 plan, it was not visible. It was more crowded than usual despite being ticketed. Large swarms of people gathering in the same areas. No covid marshalls nor signage for one way traffic. Once we got to top, lift wasn’t working, no-one to help parents with prams and toddlers down escalators. Their was no staff visible. Anyone in a wheelchair would have been stuck.

What a wonderful trip
Jun. 2021
I love Melbourne Aquarium and could not wait to visit it again soon.

One of the highlights is seeing beautiful and colourful jellyfish exhibition and another is seeing gigantic crocodile up close. The Penguin exhibit is excellent. It's very enjoyable to see them jump into the water and swim.

Fabulous day out.
Fabulous day. A special visit for my grandsons birthday. He was amazed by all the brilliant sealife on display. Not our first visit and won’t be our last.

I love it! This and the one in London are my all-times favorites. If you're not fascinated by marine life then there's something wrong with you (just joking!)

Great experience but improvement needed with cleaning
Had a great morning at the aquarium with my family and my 2 year old loved the interactive experiences and being able to see the various fish, sharks, jellyfish and penguins up close. You can probably walk through the site in an hour or so, so best not to plan an entire day around the visit.

One complaint would be the lack of cleaning - we were the first group into the aquarium (at 9.30am) and there was still rubbish and empty drink containers left over from visitors the day the before in accessible areas to children - such as the penguin look out (see pictures attached). Given the current climate we are in; this needs to be addressed.

Okay for small children
Expectations may not be met. If you came to see large tanks with sharks etc you will be disappointed. This is a a facility of lots of tanks The size of a small pool or spa. The fish are often colourful. It’s is firmly aimed at children. The penguin room is like a gigantic fridge with a swimming pool behind glass with penguins. I struggle to see the value for money.

I guess it’s not a sea world so perhaps I expect too much.
