Ocean Park Aquarium, Denham

4.4
#1 of 20 in Things to do in Denham
The main attraction at Ocean Park Aquarium is the shark pool. With a feeding on every tour, you're bound to get a good look at these creatures that make Shark Bay their home. As you wander around the open tanks and pools, you'll get an up-close look at sea life, including lion fish, squid, turtles, moray eels, stone fish, and sea snakes. While you're free to navigate the aquarium yourself, it's a good idea to take advantage of the continuously running tour. The friendly guides provide a lot of information and are eager to answer questions. The aquarium's backdrop is a stunning cliff and the ocean. The cafe overlooks the ocean. Put Ocean Park Aquarium into our Denham family vacation planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

    A continuous talk by the well informed and excellent guides. Quite expensive to get in, but on a cold wet day in Shark bay not much else on.  more »

  • I loved going there there were so many fish types and a great restaurant very nice for when you are on vacation in sha K bay and you want to look around at the marine life there
  • This is brilliant tour to introduce you to and learn all adout the marine life around Shark Bay. The guides are all marine biologists and have great personalities. You are able to finish your visit with refreshments over looking the day.
  • It's a great aquarium which focuses on the local species. Because the aquarium uses open air tanks, children can get up close to the fish. The guides are knowledgeable, friendly and like to answer questions. Also is licensed, serves coffee and food.
  • Absolutely brilliant. Very informative and fun
  • Orrible! Sharks are close inside a big dirty pool. Some species of fish and turtles are left in big buckets. The area is dirty and messy. The stuff is nice but the condition of animals deserve zero stars. Really disappointed
