  • With this aquarium located in the city centre, you can enjoy a beautiful ride and enjoy sharks, penguins and many other fish. I advise you to buy a multi activity pass. By going to the site internet you will find these pass that really benefit in terms of price.

  • Loved it! Be sure to buy the magic photo pass if you are visiting more than one attraction within 30 days. Great selection of sea life and the penguin ride was a nice surprise. Took my 9 month old there and she loved it. Great parents facility too although it is towards the end. Staff were super friendly!
  • Loved this place. The family loved the wide range of species and the way it has been laid out. We all agreed the highlight of the place was Dugong - a medium sized marine mammal which was playful and popular. The place takes around 3 hours if you want to stroll around in a gentle pace. So make sure you plan enough time to spend in this cool place which will cater to all ages and you will come out learning a thing or two about the wonderful marine creatures.
  • Really, really really must visit place because it have most of the sea life included and my personal best was the huge aquarium with the sharks and manta rays they are really awesome and it would really take much more time to discover and in my personal opinion that the ticket price is really really worth it. While my journey I found it is huge place and somehow at the end you will find yourself exhausted because of walking a lot. Overall I would 100% recommend to all the people who would like to visit it.
  • A must visit spot in Sydney, you could spend an entire afternoon in here, learning the all sea life that Australia has and the contribution they have been doing to the earth. Many more importantly, you would closely see the little penguins and king penguins by taking the raft to “their colony”. Also the Huge aquarium was really awesome. it’s worthy to go. Five stars no doubt.
  • What a place..we did the penguin passport, absolutely amazing experience. Definitely worth it. Debbie and Alex were very knowledgeable and gave us heaps of information.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
