  • A good clean aquarium with many exciting fish to see. Well run and informative. Make an appointment to swim with the fish if you dare you wont be dissapointed. Good place to spend a few hours.  more »
  • I was really disappointed with the Aquarium and thought it was very expensive. There are only a couple of highlights like the moving floor under the tank, but other than that, I was really unimpressed...  more »
  • The Aquarium is informative and interesting and takes at least 2 hours to complete. Especially interesting is the under tank tube with 270 degree views including overhead. The reef display is a very r...  more »

  • My daughter loves it. Yes it's not that big (but I cn see they are always trying to improve). My daughter will go through everything at least twice and not get bored. We only leave because she is tired. They have completed the new playground - suitable for under 5 We also just had birthday party there on the weekend. The set up was great and the staff was friendly.
  • Great layout and info, but parking is always a pain, food is expensive and low quality, and no enough to do to make it a day out. Also doesn't offer unlimited entry memberships like with Perth Zoo. So lovely, but just not worth going often. If they have the unlimited membership system or limited parking to customers only (rather than people going to the boat harbour filling it up), it would make it a bit more worthwhile the trip.
  • My first underwater style aquarium. A whole new experience watching varied kind of fish and aquatic creatures swim around. Loved it...
  • A great place to quietly educate..take your time.get the kids to read the info panels to you.a lot of people miss whats right in front of them.cafe is nice..but pack your own if the budgets tight..a must see for 6 to 12 y olds.
  • AQWA offer tourists and locals a dive into the underwater world of WA's beautiful coast. The aquarium's layout is nothing but traditional and will keep you entertained all the way to the end. You will not only see amazing specimens of fish and creatures found in this part of the world but also learn new facts every step of the way. There is a tank at the end where you can touch some creatures and an open area will give you amazing views of the ocean and marina. It is a must see if you are in Perth.
