“Fantastic place to really learn about coral reefs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

There is a lot to be discovered about coral reefs here, along with an amazing tank that has been self sufficient for over 20 years - apparently one of only three in the world.

The price is a bit high, but this is understandable given its location and that it is totally privately funded.

Our family really enjoyed the experience.

“Wonderful display of live corals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

This a a genuine family business, with various displays built around coral environments. There is a big tank and smaller displays of fish found in the Darwin area. Also a gift shop and historical pearling information and items. You can have a coffee and cake. Great information and staff will help out by answering questions. Value for money here. Spend up to two hours if you have the time.

Indo Pacific Marine is privately own and operated. Informative tour. Darwin Council would do a good thing to support this initiative
