  • World class venue, awesome displays. Can be very pricey for a family, best value for locals to purchase yearly pass. Aqua Luna the restaurant has missed the mark sadly. Fine dining is nice but when attached to a family venue it does not make much sense. Food sounds amazing But I would have liked to be able to buy a simple meal for the kids and us parents. Went to the esplanade with another group of people who wanted the same simple meal instead.
  • Small but great place to go. For people expecting to see all types of fishes around world, or big reptiles like crocodile - please do not go. For people love to see and learn more about local aquatic animals, please go - but go early not to miss presentations Personally this place is beautiful and well presented; also provides great chance to see and learn about local aquatic animals. Additionally, Loved the chance to see and talk about turtle rehab (with extra cost of $10- but happy with this because I believe they will spend this on the rehab). I loved; I spend hours with great joy! However, Once again, If you are expecting world class aquarium, this may be not the place you should go; I would suggest you to wait until visit Sydney or bigger city and bury yourself in crowds.
