Inspirock Rating:
2.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web
A privately funded venture to showcase the diversity of the coral reefs, Indo Pacific Marine opened its doors in 1971. The exhibits highlight the biodiversity of Darwin's waters and draw attention to the reef's important function in the biosphere. You'll see tanks inhabited by a colorful array of sea creatures, exhibits on pearling, and perhaps even a chance to see a barramundi feeding. A documentary video and a guided tour will leave well informed about the life of the reef. Use our Darwin trip builder to visit Indo Pacific Marine on your trip to Darwin, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.

  • We visited the Tunnels first and were given a discounted ticket to the Aquarium which we found very interesting. The owner/operator is a college of knowledge when it comes to Marine life. There is a fantastic display of a coral reef, plus a huge screen movie, and feeding of barramundi, plus many more aquariums to view. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and learnt such a lot about Marine life.
