We were pleasantly surprised by this attraction. The standout feature is the artificial but nevertheless impressive coral displays with their attendant fish. The scientific information is relevant and well presented. There is a medium-sized tank for turtles and another multi-species tank. Contrary to the flavour of the current advertising (perhaps I mistook the message) there are no dugongs... only a... More

We went here on the first day. It was well stocked with a turtle tank in an outdoor area. The aquarium is well worth a visit.

Lots of coral to see in the really large displays of all colours. Very good descriptions in English and items suitable for children especially the turtle enclosure.

Loved the large fish tank with sharks and stuff. The turtles came right up to the glass - a great photo opportunity. Was a bit disappointed that there were no dugongs as on the flyer it stated that there was a dugong exhibit and even had a picture of a dugong, but all it was was a video about dugongs.... More

So many creatures I've never seen before, with good descriptions for each exhibit. There were turtles too! Some of the descriptions are only in French though.

We greatly enjoyed our visit to the Noumea aquarium. Fish and other marine animals looked healthy and we were very exciting to see the swimming nautilus, the sea snakes and the baby sea horses. Feeding starts as 10.30 am near the entrance and we were pleased to follow the feeders as they went from one exhibit to the next

Great place to spend a morning or afternoon with the kids, variety of displays including interactive and a large display with fish feeding. Go for a walk along the bay and visit the creperie Le Rocher at the top of the hill around the corner for lunch after

Great for kids. A lot to see with little walking. Really liked the large aquarium room. Fascinating fish to view. A great stop after pushing young kids through the streets of Noumea on the way back to the hotel.

Quite an enjoyable visit. Although we have seen much bigger aquariums elsewhere. It was a nice cool respite from the long walk in the sun.
