The reefworld place is pretty damn good. Wasn't particularly keen on going because I was sick but my friend dragged me there and honestly glad he did. The owner or manager was a super chill guy with a winning personality. Between getting to pat turtles, feed sharks and giant fish you really do get a good experience from it. Seriously... More

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It's not as "glamorous" or "polished" as some aquatic attractions are, but this visit was one of the most memorable I have had. The viwing tanks are lit by sunlight, and water levels are regulated according to tidal cycles, and had an impressive array of beautiful fish, sharks, crabs, and starfish. I... More

This aquarium featured such rarities as - - The pest Aptasia Anemone, in seriously massive quantities. - Barramundi, so rare that we eat them. - A single Clarkii Clownfish, presumably the second had earlier committed suicide in an attempt to cheer the other up. - A most unwell looking Six Bar Angelfish. - Common aquarium fish the Volitans Lionfish. -...

This aquarium is not very big, and it didn't take us long to look at everything, but was worth it just for the experience of being able to pat the sea turtles in the outdoor enclosure. They swim right up to the edge of the pool and let you touch them-so amazing! Our kids (and us) were amazed and we... More

The staff are very friendly and informative. They were finding homes for injured fish as we arrived. Yes the entry fee is $20 p/p however, this fee does allow you to come back as many times per day, and allows you to feed and interact with the turtles and sharks at each feeding time. This would cost over $90 p/p... More

We love our aquariums and we thought this was very expensive for what it was. Very small indeed, we saw it all in 20 mins, and that was having a good look in every tank and having a chat about what we were looking at. The kids did really enjoy it, so that's the main thing, they fed the fish... More

Seeing the aquarium from the outside, We were quite disappointed, because it looked very small. We payed, entered and the actual aquarium itself was Okay. The glass was dirty, scratched and you can't really take photos of the fish. Then we went outside to the fish tank with turtles. The fish were friendly and actually come up to you so... More
