Whilst the aquarium isn't huge it was perfect for our 3 year old's first aquarium. The staff member was so friendly and obviously enjoyed his job. You could not beat the opportunity to pet and feed the turtles, it was amazing. Unfortunately we had to leave before the shark feeding.

Was a nice experience but still was overpriced for locals and not much to do. The kids loved seeing the sharks and turtles

Oh wow! What a great day we had, visited several times during the one day as they have the fish feeding sessions at different times and you get to feed the fish yourself!! Daughter loved helping and exploring all the different tanks. But the one she really loved was getting up close and personal with the sharks, turtles and various... More

Visited to fill in part of the afternoon. This is quite a small aquarium and at first glance the $20 (adult) admission is excessive however, we selected the combo option for $32 which included a meal at the adjoining restaurant. This made it a value for money experience. The meals were generously portioned, tasted good and the service was prompt.... More

My young kids liked being here but it was not very big and the feeding times are scattered. I thought that $20 an adult was a bit steep and there was no family passes. You can come and go all day if you want to be there for both feedings

It was very small maybe a little over priced. We got to pet a turtle so that was good. If i could re do the day i wouldn't have paid the price we did.
