  • What a spectacular sight! This was my 3rd time coming to visit and each time has been oh so memorable. Superb interactions with sealife from feeling starfish to being up close with sharks, sting rays and other beautiful sea life! Truly spectacular. The layout is a fun well designed maze that immerses you completely in the experience with fun activities for the kids to complete along the way. There is so much to see and do that you will be entertained for hours! Will be coming back again soon :)
  • Nice experience! I was able to feel " everything is bigger in Australia " Plus, huge stingers and sharks(?) Were just amazing. Also huge size of crocodile was just incredible. I had to admit that was thrilling by just looking at it. Nice place for family visit or dating as couple. I had really nice time and money was worth it.
