Owner description: An awesome underwater adventure awaits you at AQWA! AQWA is WA’s premiere marine attraction located just 20 minutes north of Perth City. Discover more of WA’s spectacular marine life as you go on an underwater journey along our coast, from the icy-cold waters of the Southern Ocean to the tropical wonderland of coral reefs in the Far North. You’ll encounter sharks, stingrays and turtles, meet rare and unusual sea creatures like seadragons, be captivated by a living Coral Reef and face a dangerous and deadly line up of marine life in the DANGERzone. There’s also the chance to gently touch marine life or try an Adventure and dive into one of our aquariums! AQWA is open every day from 10am-5pm.

“$26 for a giant fish tank.”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Who the heck can afford $26 to go see a giant fish tank? It looks like they are only catering to one kind of tourist. Rich ones.

“Nice facility slightly over priced”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

The site has had a few renovations but mostly not much has changed in the last 8 years. Once you have gone you don't need to go again. There isn't much innovation to bring you back again. Entry fee should also be less.

“A visually beautiful experience.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

My partner and I extremely enjoyed our underwater journey through the Aquarium. All the different displays were set up so beautifully, I particularly enjoyed the tank where you are able to touch some of the marine life. Very educational, the staff were very friendly, overall a perfect experience to the introduction of marine life here in Western Australia.
