Went round in 2006, delighted to see a shark exhibit but deeply regret going in. It may have changed but I genuinely felt upset the more I saw. Sensationalist, one sided scaremongering in my opinion. Great white in the freezer at the end was just so sad. Disappointed I gave this company / man a cent of my money or... More

As a Hervey Bay local I am ashamed that this is one of our "tourist attractions". It stinks. Literally! Those sharks are rotten. There are marine creature body parts strewn all over. It really stinks. I left feeling sick and needing to shower (twice before I felt clean). Not only was the stench sickening but the propaganda was sickening. We... More

Agree with other personality assessments, smells and observations regarding conspiracy theories. All that is missing is a healthy dose of paranoia. Keep up the good work Vic

Me and the boyfriend were having a chill day and didn't want to do anything too strenuous. We were told not to take this place to seriously. Good if you hate sharks as much as Vic does. If not... Try to be open minded.

Just left Vic Hislop's Shark Expo feeling physically I'll!! A combination of the smell from his half rotting shark display, and ridiculous propaganda glorifying the slaughter of sharks! Vic needs mental help! The entire display is basically just an unhinged rant about how we're all being deceived by some massive shark conspiracy, it's ludicrous!! Don't waste your time or money!!!

I got bored after 10 minutes. There is clippings over the walls. There is 2 sharks you can see through the window. There is a video you can see. It is very small and to be 100% honest it is really boring. I feel for the price they should make it $5 per person not $18. It is not wheel... More

We went here because I have been to Hervey 3 times and never gone in.....well what a travesty that we did. I am apalled at the views of one man. Granted 30 years ago the views were a lot different however in modern day education and facts have shown us that eco systems run themselves. Vics view is truly that... More

See this place, I suggest keep going. Whilst we found it interesting.. It's esentially walls of newspaper clippings and old movies.terrible view on sharks. And the place looks like it was put together in the eighties and that's where it remains.
