  • It was quite busy, I presume lots of people using their Discover vouchers before they expire end of June. However, it was all well organised and staff was very friendly and helpful. When booking...

  • This is one of the best aquariums I've visited, the animals have excellent care and enrichment. The highlight of my day was watching the training session with pig and hearing the various talks. I was very impressed with the penguin habitat as they had a large area to roam with a big pool for swimming and real snow which is similar to their natural environment. There are so many sea creatures to see and it took us about 3 hours to slowly walk through the whole aquarium. Would definitely recommend however it was rather busy on Friday.
  • Its a nice place to visit one time.. when started the sea life journey, it was not very exciting, but later on as we progressed we enjoyed.. the later parts were sharks, whales, and cute penguins.. i just loved watching penguins, jelly fishes.. and the coral reef... It was beautiful.. obviously we will can have so many pictures as its beautiful there.. watching the beautiful fishes... And the sea life...
  • We had a wonderful time again at this fantastic facility in a great location in Cockle Bay. Don't know if I would bother with the water ride through the Penguin exhibit again - but the kids love that sort of thing. It is a great facility for school excursions but they were a big negative for us and we were finally chased out by a rowdy group competing with each to be heard and more interested in interacting with each other than what they could see. Perhaps if they could be reduced into smaller lots - so more supervisors to take them around and keep them engaged. This would reduce the noise level and they would get more from the experience. But loved it, Colleen Strange
  • Amazing place to see the beautiful creations of the Almighty. Very well maintained and presented all year round. The staff are extremely knowledgeable and friendly upon approach. They greet you with a warm "SMILE" upon entry. Keep up the great work and international standards. Please give the penguins a "kiss" for me. Happy feet is comming back soon "God willing".

  • Used to work in the industry and I have to say that you guys have an awesome setup I was really impressed. The only downsize was the tank cleanliness… Several tanks had windows covered in algae which was disappointing to see, considering that if you keep on top of it, they’re easy to keep clean. Apart from that, loved everything, I’d definitely come back again
