  • Very organized. You can't go back in the attractions. Always follow the order, with no minimum time of residence in each environment. Each more interesting than the other. The tunnel that goes underneath the Aquarium, the impressive, terrifying and wonderful crocodile and the Nice penguins are my favorite attractions.

  • There was a fairly lengthy queue to buy tickets, which did not move very quickly, the process appeared quite protracted, and it was not cheap. However it is a great place to visit and really enjoy the...  more »

  • I guess you need to love fish. It was as expected a delightful romp full of undersea beasts. The Pros. *Lots of rare and exotic fish. *A crocodile ! *Interesting viewing bubbles and platforms that allow you to engage with the exhibits from multiple angles. *Friendly helpful staff. The Cons. *Busy oh so busy - pick your timing carefully! *Lacks stadium seating at the penguins
  • Sea Life Nights.... What a great Friday night out. Well worth every cent. DJ and band were awesome. Good vibes. Great idea Melbourne Aquarium, well done 👏🏽.
  • We went first thing in the morning on a Sunday which worked out well as it was rather quiet. Staff were all lovely! We purchased a $7 explorers pack which my 9 year old daughter loved as she traded cards with staff members. Penguins were a highlight watching them get fed and watching the nesting.
  • Always a super fun experience at sea life Melbourne. There's a wide variety of animals, and it's definitely setup to be friendly for children and prams. As you walk in there's a photo opportunity that they try and sell you towards the end. Our child loved the fish, playing with the water and of course the huge string rays and sharks! There's a giant crocodile half way which is stunning. The whole time, we've been immersed in the aquatic experience. Towards the end there's a mini cinema with a theme of ice age. Overall kids love it but if your child is in a pram napping, maybe give it a pass. Gets a little noisy. Penguins at the end were amazing! Overall loads of change stations in parental rooms and lifts. Highly recommend
  • Had a great time at this aquarium the other day. It is absolutely a great place to take kids, as they have a lot of attractions, activities and areas that are tailored to kids of young ages. Thy have a ton of different sea life attractions to see and learn about, and have various talks, shows and feedings that happen throughout the day. Overall, I would definitely recommend coming here if you love to see sea-life or have a day where you need to keep the kids occupied. They also have cafes and restaurants inside the aquarium where you can buy snacks and beverages in-case you need a bit of rest.
