This was wonderful for my 5yr old daughter, she got to hand feed the big groper and the sea turtles and sharks. She even got to reach out and shake hands with the enormous sea turtle, a truly memorable experience. My only complaint was how ridiculously expensive it was for adults, $20ea for my mum and myself given that it... More

Staff were best friends and had an excellent knowledge of their exhibits. This is not Sea world or Sydney aquarium but a very personal family experience. Pass outs available. feed the turtles give them a good scratch on the back and come back again later in the day to feed all the other fish

We fed the Turtles and the Sharks and the other fish at the designated feeding times. It was a really fun and personal experience - as our guide was really helpful and informative. He obviously loves his job and being around these wonderful sea creatures. Highly recommended! Next time we'll have to try the restaurant next door too.

Beautiful aquarium with great variety of fish, lots of included interactive activities such as fish feeding, shark feeding, turtle feeding, touching the turtles as they swim by and shark swim for an additional fee. Attached restaurant has a great view and delicious meals.

We decided to go to the Reef World because it was in a magazine as 'best coral display in australia' so we thought it was going to be amazing! however we were very disappointed. There wasnt alot of coral and there were a few fish but nothing to write home about. We have a salt water tank at home that... More

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.
