Nice place to cool off

I love the good selection of tropical marine life. Very educational especially for people who don't dive

Nice aquarium, heaps of fun for families. Definitely worth a look. The view from the top of the hill near the turtle tanks is one for the check list.

While being a small setting compare to the largest facilities around the world it is a must to visit to get a breath taking experience of the second largest barrier reef in the world. Stoning fluorescent corals, magnificent array of coral fish species, nautilus, turtles... And a very educational children oriented display assessing the environment and nature protection. Worth the... More

A great place to go if you have spare time, though it is small there is still a large number of sea life.

Visited there this morning and was not expecting such a well presented and informative range of displays, and with the interpretative panels in both English and French, this was a bonus. Easiest way to see the fish and marine life of the coral reefs without getting wet and in an expensive country (or at least Noumea is) this was great... More

The exhibits were very well presented and informative with a variety of creatures we'd never seen before. The turtles out the back however don't have a very interesting environment even though it's quite large.

Inclement weather so we decided to visit the aquarium which was located near to where we were staying. Entry fee was reasonable and we were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the exhibits which were very well maintained. Easy to spend a few hours just watching the many varieties of fish and other underwater creatures and large variety of coral.... More

The aquarium is definitely a good way to spend a couple of hours, especially if the weather is not pleasant, or you have already had too much sun. There is an interesting variety of fish and quite spectacular display of coral, with descriptions in both French and English on plaques on each side of the tanks. We found the entry... More
