  • Cute attraction, especially for children! Are small tubs and exposures not fully exploited! A little pricey admission, and dearest photos that you are done at the entrance and then presented to the exit!

  • This is more one for the kids but I still enjoyed it although it did not take long to go round. probably one for a wet day (no joke intended). 
  • This is an excellent aquarium and the penguins are especially cute to watch. However it can get very bus, so I suggest you ask before you buy tickets. Also its on the small side so it seems a little e...  read more »
  • Nice collection of sea creatures. The tube was awesome! Nice feeling when a shark flies over your head :) The place has options for scuba diving with the sharks. Make a prior booking to do that since the slots are limited. Will definitely try it next time! The gift shop has some nice toys & souvenirs.
  • Not a bad place to spend about 2 hours or so. I went on a Saturday morning so it wasn't too crowded, saw a couple of the talks including the penguins and crocodile which were quite informative. Decent range of sea life to see (not the biggest of course!) but would definitely keep the kids entertained. 4D movie at the end was also great!
  • My first time going to an Aquarium - I thought it was pretty damn cool. I especially loved the huge acrylic viewing tubes that slice right through the tanks - walking under gigantic rays and sharks was a pretty awesome experience. I also liked the level of engagement from staff - especially the kind guide at the crocodile enclosure, who answered lots (!) of questions. It's quite a pricey ticket - especially if you haven't got a concession card - and the heating was a little bit extreme the day I was there. It was freezing outside, but I was sweating in the building. All in all, I had a fun time. I might hold off on going again until it's been a while, though, owing to the ticket price.
  • Great place to take the kids. I just found out to renew your yearly membership its only $64. If you park at crowns multi-car park during the week its only $6. The kids love it, its well worth the visit. Its pretty busy on weekends so go early.
  • Good attraction place, nothing special of you are not a big fan of sea world. Don't miss the massive crocodile! TIP: Ask for parking discount if you parked in the multi level parking across the road, tou will save a lot of $$$.
