I took my mum here to check out the penguines - we had such a great time - we walked around the aquarium twice.

Great for a family visit. A short walk from the city and just across the river from southbank.

This is really tacky and located in one of the ugliest buildings in Australia. Generally an acoustic nightmare due to screaming children and piped in sound effects to "enhance" whatever nonsense the Aquarium is promoting as a gimmick.

don't be in a rush, take your time as there's so much to look at and it can be so relaxing, lots of waking though but you can hire wheel chairs for those not able to walk too far
