My husband and I visited the aquarium because it was really too cold to swim or snorkel, and it was definitely worthwhile. Lots of different aquariums, some amazing fish, especially in the last massive one with sharks, a stingray, and some other really big fish....More

This was a surprisingly good attraction. Much bigger than I initially thought and incredibly well done with lots to see. Reasonably priced at 1500xpf per adult.

Definitely worth a visit to learn all about what's under the water in New Caledonia. I scuba dive regularly but had lots of fun seeing and exploring this Aquarium. It was well worth the visit with some high quality, unusual and interesting exhibits.

They even have nautilus; they have re-created their environment. They hold a daily quiz about sea creatures (in French), which is great fun. Well worth a visit.

I concur its about $20AUD per adult. We were there for about 90 minutes maybe 2 hours and it was amazing. One thing to be aware of is they don't accept foreign currency - not a huge issue but just make sure you either have... More
