Always a great place to visit when its raining and you need to get the kids out of the house. We have annual passes and the kids never tire of going here. They love it every single time.

Underwater world or Sea Life has changed since my last visit and i was interested to see how i would cope now with 2 children and a double pram.
The welcome and entrance was ok,, Racq provided a good discount and the usual photo opportunity is always fun. Almost immediately you can touch the starfish for a short time and then your off. Seem a little bit of a chore for the staff but ok.
You yourself are the tour guide and if your happy to look through fish tanks for most of the experience then your in luck. Some of sections were tight for prams!
There are some signs of what's in the some of the tanks. A good wipe of the glass wouldn't go astray! We couldn't wait till 11 am for the Seal show due to difficult children.
Overall a good experience for a couple of hours only.

This is a beautiful aquarium.... but you cant enter after 2. Aquarium closes at 3 :-(
The cafe is good for a quick lunch, and there are few activities for kids too. There are a few shows with sea lions and crocodiles, make sure you check out the timings before starting your visit

Was a nice aquarium. I enjoyed their sea tunnel the most. The place was smaller than what I expected. Probably could finish walking and looking around in under an hour. The seal presentation was fun to watch. Bought the photos they took of us at the beginning and it was cool. The aquarium felt like it was missing a few things. Was hoping to see more unique marine animals and a platypus.
