    My wife and I decided to try some of the other attractions while on vacation and stopped in to see the fish. We have been to several aquariums and this one was very nice, better than I expected actually. They have a good selection of setups, and lots of different fish to see. The scuba people were in the big tank when we were there and talked to a lot of people. Being a side trip we didn't take many photos, but there are lots of opportunities to do so (without flash!) We bundled our ticket to this with Madam Tussauds wax museum in the same building and it made a nice thing to do. It cost us around 85 bucks for the both of us to get into both attractions. They also have the big Coke sky ferris wheel thing in the building as well, but we didn't ride that. Overall a nice cool place to spend some time looking at fish!

    This is a nice aquarium and an activity that took a few hours. It included a touch area where we could touch an anemone. Fun afternoon!

    "Best Aquarium we have visited!"

    We visited on a Lazy Sunday morning. The Aquarium is part of the Coca Cola Eye & Madam Tussauds complex. All surrounded by eating and shopping establishments. A very relaxing place to chill out. There is free outdoor and multi-storey car parking. As you enter the Aquarium you are subject to the usual staged photo experience which cost some $20-30 if you wish to purchase. The path through the aquarium is fantastic as there are many varied and extensive displays of fish. There are perspex tunnels, convex window and bubble domes along the journey which means you can get down and personal with the fish. Fantastic. There are lots of interactive activities for children. TIP: There is a food court in the complex but we found the quality poor and I would recommend the restaurants outside the complex instead. The best Aquarium we have visited and we will return.

    This is a small, wonderfully interactive aquarium. We had a fun relaxing afternoon wandering through the tanks. So many are set up to be interactive. A real learning experience but it didn’t feel stuffy or forced to learn.
