  • I thought it helpful, I don't think I made so you can stroll stroller or wheelchair slope a lot, but not turn it round, and it stairs for the shortcut, such as if another. As the Aquarium is small, but feeding show eh? I was happy because it happened to be seen.

  • We visited the aquarium at the end of the day. It was very well taken care of and very clean. The exhibits were educational and fun for the kiddos. And we all enjoyed the large tanks with sharks and s...  read more »
  • I've been to a lot of aquariums, so I may be a bit biased, but this isn't the best. I would have expected Sydney to have an amazing aquarium! It is very expensive to go to, not sure its worth the pric...  read more »
  • I think the price does not match quality. It was not at all a good aquarium. Its small and pokey little tanks with some fish. Walking endlessly up ramps to get to other exhibitions. It actually used to be a great aquarium but now just pack the people in money making!! Its maybe half the size it used to be. They still have the lovely tanks under you can walk through but even them have very few fish/ocean life like before. Just very disappointed. Wouldn't waste my money again!!!!!!!!
  • Anywhere that has a Shark is a 10/10 IGN Would Shark Agin. The Dewgongs where very cute. They are so fat.
  • Very good sharks, they seem like very well mannered lil fishos! 12/10 nothin like a good shark
  • My family and I took our two year old and his cousin (3yrs) down and at first I thought he would be too young. In regards that he would find it more fun running around with his cousin than actually looking at the animals. Although he did absolutely love running around he did actually seem to show interest in most of the animals on display. It is a tight fit on a busy day like school holidays when we went, especially chasing toddlers around but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. My boy loved it and that made it all worthwhile. Looking forward to taking him back when he is older. The only improvement is that the place does look a bit dated but it has been there a long time.
  • You'd think with being one of the best cities in the world that it would have an aquarium to match! The place is filthy! Very badly maintained... Almost falling to bits... I Actually feel bad for the fish! Considering the prices they charge you'd expect it to be amazing! Wouldn't recommend it! Very boring and very dated!
