Bought tickets as a deal including bio-park tickets, so not a bad price for the two attractions. As stated in other reviews, this is a small aquarium, but it has very interesting exhibits, and the condition of the tanks and habitat are excellent. There is a large tank with several viewing windows which features the walk through tunnel. Very friendly... More

The online maps give the impression the place is much bigger. The underwater tunnel walk trough is nothing more than a glorified corner turn. The fish are nice to go and see for what they are and the best value of this place is most likely when schools go in groups and have a guide. Don't expect anything more than... More

Glad I printed off discount vouchers. It was OK but not for the full price. It was tired looking, a bit scruffy some of the exhibits had taken the day off. Parking is paid for just outside. Restaurant was a tourist trap and expensive.

I was disappointed in this as it was quite small and fairly expensive admission fee. It would however be a nice place to take the children on a rainy day

Not a large place but has some interesting displays and you can watch the otters and sea horses being fed. It was relaxing to walk around and watch the different fish etc.

If you're not a marine life aficionado, you may well find this place uninteresting. However, for those with a good level of knowledge and interest, this place is a gem. The huge and lovely tank at the entrance boasted enchanting cow rays, Port Jackson sharks (so cute) and guitar sharks which eagerly took the squid you can buy for 2... More
