Owner description: An awesome underwater adventure awaits you at AQWA! AQWA is WA’s premiere marine attraction located just 20 minutes north of Perth City. Discover more of WA’s spectacular marine life as you go on an underwater journey along our coast, from the icy-cold waters of the Southern Ocean to the tropical wonderland of coral reefs in the Far North. You’ll encounter sharks, stingrays and turtles, meet rare and unusual sea creatures like seadragons, be captivated by a living Coral Reef and face a dangerous and deadly line up of marine life in the DANGERzone. There’s also the chance to gently touch marine life or try an Adventure and dive into one of our aquariums! AQWA is open every day from 10am-5pm.

“Still good but not great!”
Reviewed 1 April 2012

I've been to Aqwa on many occasions our more recent visit really wasn't that great the seals have disappeared I looked for a notice to find out why but nothing and the display that they have now was just a larger scale of what they have inside. There was a new turtle display outside I presume this was a working progress as it was just a tank water and afew turtles poor things. Great for the little ones but the older ones was bored the most exciting part for them was the sharks. Always thought great value for money but unfortunately not this time.

“underwater along the Australian Costline”
Reviewed 29 March 2012

a late opener the aqwa made us waiting. But 10 am is an acceptable opening time when on holidays, isn´t? he nearby shoping facilities made us by a few postcards and up she goes. EverySome 1st or 2nd grade students learned of their teach that sharks are more dangerous than bees, because they might swallow you completely! touch but not scratch animals of the sea was added to a most impressive circle under water. To me it´s a must when at Hillary´s yacht club.

“Worth the visit”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

Very nice and great location too.
The Sydney Aquarium is better but this is worth
The café could be better, it is a bit over priced and doesn't offer a great range of foods, but it is definitely a great place to go

“A Learning Experience for All Age Groups”
Reviewed 28 March 2012

The underwater world at AQUA is brought to life with colour, vision and detail. Questions and queries about the various marine creatures living in our ocean are provided cheerfully by AQUA Staff. The "touch pool" will fascinate children for hours and the tourist shop has a wonderful trove of gift items to choose from. A day well worth the price of admission.

“Brilliant Reviews”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Had our inlaws over from England and they absolutely loved this place.

Really helped them understand the dangers of our waters and what they all looked like.
