Very educational. Mostly suited to school age kids but my three year old enjoyed it too. A few tanks with different fish to see, lots of interactive exhibits and the touch pool too. Nice little cafe inside as well. Worth a visit.

Staff were rude and had little tolerance for children who were playing with the activities left out for children! This could have been a great experience however I left feeling it was not child friendly! Wouldn't bother going again.

Not only is it great value at $15 for a family ticket it is informative, and there is so much to do and learn about in a fun way. The awesome touch pool was such a great way for the girls to learn and touch sea animals and the guide was so friendly and it was very educational. The Leeuwin... More

This is a great little educational facility with scientists working to help maintain the WA marine environment. It is amazing value for money, with a family ticket costing just $15! We took our 3 year old son and 10 year old daughter and they both really enjoyed it. Our 3 year old actually sat trough the 10 minute movie presentation... More
