Too expensive for the experience
Mar. 2021
Prices are quite expensive for what is a very short experience.
You're only in there for 1-2 hours and when taking a family it is costly.

The staff were all great, it was way over crowded in there and we felt like we could hardly move in some spots, line to get in was outrageously long even though you book a time slot.
Just felt like way too many people were in there and it was too short for the cost involved.

Swim with the sharks is great!
Apr. 2021
Thanks to the fun team who took me swimming with the sharks! I actually found I like the rays best. Interesting to be able to get so close to creatures, even as a diver I’ve never been that close.

We enjoyed it with our little one!
Apr. 2021 • Family
There is a lot to see, and our 1 year old baby girl enjoyed it as well. First time we took her out to see sea animals. I recon it's a great day trip activity for family, especially for the little one to open their eyes up and see different sea animals.
I also learnt myself that the starfish is not a fish so should be called sea star. A take way for me today.
Will come back again when she's older.
The entry family photos are looking really good and we purchased them to show our daughter when she is a bit older.

Good way to fill in an hour
Apr. 2021 • Family
This is a nice mid size aquarium. Allocated session times meant no long lines during school holidays. This may just be a covid thing though. The seal show is more about a quick lesson on environmental impacts on sea life, rather than a performance.
Also note that when they give you the ticket for your pre-entry photos you don’t have to view them there as you leave, you can do it online afterwards using the ticket code.

Amazing family experience with added options for special occassions
Feb. 2021
My nieces and I purchased the behind the scenes tour with a fantastic energetic guide who passed on her knowledge of the turtles and feeding regimes. The glass archway where you walk under the fish is simply amazing. HR needs a shout out as they have the most happy, knowledgeable and helpful staff of any tourist attraction out. Nieces also swam with the seals on seal island and we all were amazed by the staff who checked on us throughout our visit. Very child friendly and arrows show you where to walk during these times.

No Cash entry

Sadly the phampletts in hotels do not state you Cannot Use Cash and Cannot come in without prebooking!

Great for little ones
Feb. 2021 • Family
My daughter loved her visit here which in turn made us love it. It is a little run down and for some reason there were no turtles. But she loved it. Great for little kids and a good family day out.
