Short experience as it's not your average aquarium type experience with only a small variety of sea life to see but very knowledgeable experience. Unfortunately for us it was kept short as our children are too young to understand the talks and information shared. Basically just looked at all the small tanks, played in the boat and that was it. The two staff were very welcoming, friendly and shared lots of information. Would recommend for anybody willing to listen to the information shared and for older children who understand and can possible ask questions. Children under 3 are free but I wouldn't recommend this experience with younger children.

A small aquarium but well worth it with younger or early teens. The staff were superb!! As it was part of the University, the staff we had were research students who interacted with the visitors & gave very detailed explanations of the fish & various sea life on display. It was very very interesting - thank you!

Small aquarium but staff were friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable on the creatures who are common marine life within the local park. Was great to see the fish being fed. Touch pool was nice to feel some of the animals. I loved it!

It was a good wet weather activity the kids enjoyed the big boat and the fishing 🎣 rods on the toy prop. It’s also good to support local marine Wildlife science research. It was a nice surprise for a fun educational rainy activity.

We spent a fascinating few hours exploring the marine life of the Coffs Coast. The displays were visually stunning and showcased the diversity found. The kids loved the 'treasure hunt' activity that kept them searching from display to display and learning the names of the animals. They also loved the activity area where they could get hands and learn. Definitely worth a visit.
