  • 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!
