  • First time visitors really impressed with what inside the Aquarium Sadly the penguins house was being done up but still got to see them Friendly staff and very easy access  more »
  • An aquarium in Melbourne pulled over. Quite often do not know the type of fish was displayed in English but not seen so much in Japan Aquarium species of fish, as attractions. There is a little more show may be subtle. Small dome water tank to the face is a little fun even for adults! Melbourne tourism magazine B5 size, though (too much fish come) that in other museums, hotels, tourist offices and at 20% discount voucher so you can use credit cards and take a look at with good. Have been in the past winter, but still hot and humid, so be careful!

  • Kids loved the visit to the Aquarium today. Great displays and the kids ranger pack kept them occupied and focused. Reception staff were friendly but very short on the ground when you got into the venue. Most areas unmanned. A major downside was the fact you were forced through the overpriced gift shop to exit the building, which brings the day down when you're not prepared to spend $$$ on a stuffed toy or momento for the kids, after spending $100+ for
  • Bought yearly passes for the family. My little one loves coming here and to tell you the truth, I don't mind it either. Watching fish in a tank has always fascinated me. It's even better when the tank is gigantic. The central tank with the overhead fish is fantastic. This is definitely better than the Aquarium in Sydney. But like many of these family friendly attractions, I would avoid it during busy periods like school Holidays as it can get very claustrophobic and crowded.
  • Exceptional experience.. Really loved the place.. Specifically very informative for children. A lot of new sea life species to see. Very humble and polite staff. Can be a great place for group tours. :)
  • A great family day out. There are so many exhibits that keep the family entertained for hours. The two best exhibits by far are the large viewing window and the crocodile exhibit. The only downside to visiting this place is the price. The food and souvenirs are overpriced and enters is extremely high. Definitely bring your own food and plan on being here all day. Get their early to avoid the rush of families lining up for tickets.
  • hundreds of sea life creatures at one place. It was wonderful to see penguins, Nemo and Dori species for real. 4D cinema - included within the entry ticket - is a delightful bonus!

Where to stay in Melbourne

The hub of tourist and commercial activity, the center of Melbourne remains the best place to stay if you're looking to splurge and enjoy every possible modern amenity during your visit. Travelers on a limited budget can search for cozy yet less expensive rooms in the seaside suburb of St Kilda or the bohemian neighborhood of Fitzroy. Though the city center offers more than a fair share of mid-range lodging options, you'll also find plenty of rooms in this price bracket in the quieter suburbs.
