We loved the aquarium side. It was fantastic to feed the turtles sharks and fish. We took the meal and aquarium double deal which was great prices. However we had terrible service in the restaurant. We had trouble getting someone to seat us then our order was misplaced and when we got our meal an hour later it was cold.... More

Check the pricing. $20 per adult or $32 for entry and meal in the restaurant up to value of $20. Restaurant meal was excellent, well worth it. A leisurely walk around the main tank viewing the many different fish. Came back to watch the feeding at 2.30 that was the highlight.

My son (12) loved it here. You get a pass for the whole day so as we were staying close by we came and went around the feeding times. He loved the touch tank where he got to pat and feed the turtles as well as the large fish and small sharks. The Aquarium inside is dated and small and... More

Children loved feeding the turtles and were able to pat their shell which was fascinating. the staff were very informative and seemed to enjoy passing on information to guests. Went out of their way to point out the very tiny baby sharks and the sharks eggs which we would not have known about without them. Some parts seem a bit... More

Reefworld was compact but so much fun! $70 for a family of 5 to visit on an all day pass. Location has plenty of parking and a playground next door to make a full day outing. The turtles were the family favourite. Patting and scratching these enormous animals was awesome.

It is a great place to visit. The live reefs and aquatic creatures lovely to see. Opportunities to feed the turtles are terrific for the kids. we are taking our grand-daughter there when she visits later this month and she will love it.

Yes this Aquarium might be small and a little tired, BUT, the staff were very attentive and enthusiastic. It was great to feed both the turtles and sharks and the various fish and sea creatures were interesting. Bought the package of entry and lunch voucher next door which was great value.

A must for those who like fish or diving. Try dive with sharks and you will also meet professional divers. But it's clear that (your) money is what they want. You have to pass through the store with toys before you can leave. Which they know will be expensive for families with children:-))

My partner and myself enjoyed visiting this small aquarium. We arrived just as it was time to feed the turtles and sharks. We did the feeding along with another couple that had small children. The kiddies loved being able to do this too. Inside is a large tank with lots of different fish and a large grouper . Around outside... More

We had a long layover at Hervey Bay Airport and came into town for lunch and the aquarium. It is tiny, very shabby, but after you get past that, the fish and other marine life are actually quite plentiful and interesting. The turtle and shark pens in the back are so small as to be depressing, but I leave that... More
