Was a good way to fill in a couple of hours but at $38 per adult I thought it was fairly overpriced. The large walk through aquarium was pretty amazing with the rays and sharks, although the water looked quite cloudy. The penguins were very cute and the salt water crocodile was awesome, he's huge. Was interesting but I wouldn't... More

Had a few hours to waste in Melbourne so we decided to visit here. Had to stop for a photo despite the fact that we knew, and informed the photographer that we wouldn't buy them. The exhibits were fantastic, with easy vision of species, was especially impressed with huge walk through tank with sharks and rays swimming overhead, the salty... More

My partner and I loved our visit to the Melbourne aquarium this week. We used our discount coupon from when we bought our Myki transport card to get a 20% discount. The full price for entry is quite pricey at $38 for an adult. This aquarium has the usual sea creatures and is well set out to enable a great... More

Absolutely love the Aquarium, the walks underneath the water tanks are amazing with sharks, rays and so many beautiful fish swimming over and around you! The huge fish tank is also a must see and don't miss the penguins! They are fascinating and so funny to watch when they are diving in to the pool and sliding down the ice.

Just visited aquarium this weekend past. Was well worth a visit crocodile was huge! And many other exhibits worth taking a quick look at. Rating would have been higher but was way too expensive for the size it is. The only comfort being that im guessing so money goes to conservation? So in conclusion worth a visit but too expensive.

It is a pretty expensive day with the family so I recommend you get your tickets early online to get a good discount. It is really well set up with lots of attractions at the kids levels so you don't need to keep picking them up to see things. Pack a picnic, get a pass out and eat on the... More

What a great way to spend a few hours, the aquarium in Melbourne is very easy to get to, right across the river from the famous Crown Casino. We saw many different sea life creatures but the favourite was the penguins, they are so cute, we got a lot of photos. Everyone had a great day, we also bought some... More

This was my 1st time experience to such a place with my wife and it was awesome. The place is very well managed which is divided into various sections. The best one for me was the Penguin place. I had seen the little penguins before at Phillip Island but here the penguins were big and looked beautiful when they swim.... More
