Great experience with amazing and interesting displays especially the frozen shark. Depends on your interest but would be great place to show the family.

Spent a good half day here and took advantage of the meal deal. Enjoyed the morning and afternoon feedings and the helpful informative dialogue with staff. Break for lunch in the restaurant adjacent to the aquarium was peaceful on the balcony over the water. Good range of options on menu. It is not a large aquarium, but I spent hours... More

We found this on the internet and booked a shark swim. Excellent experience and staff were keen to chat and at no time did you feel rushed . There was no time on the shark swim so we stayed as long as we wanted. Afterwards we fed the sharks and turtles which was a really great experience . Really enjoyable

Visited here last year whilst visiting my Mum & Dad in Herveybay. Was a great experience to get up close with the turtles, my girlfriend who has never dived before loved getting up close and being able to feed the turtles. Highly recommended!

I visited Reefworld with my parents and my partner and we had an amazing time! The tanks were incredibly interesting with all the different coral and colourful/intriguing fish! However the best part of the visit and my day was the turtle feeding and petting! All the guests got a chance to hand feed the beautiful turtles, it was hilarious and... More

At $18 per person one expects a public aquarium to at least have clean glass on the tanks. It is understood that the establishment has struggled since the 2011 flood to recover but to see the stress behavior of several of the fish and mammals was worrying. In retrospect I would have been happier to put $20 in a donation... More
