I'm really enjoyed the visit to Aquarium. There are lots of beautiful and interesting sea animals. But penguins are the most exiting there, making it really worth to go!

I've been to many aquariums and I have to say that this was a very good experience. Got to see things I hadn't seen before, was hoping to do the shark walk but didn't get around to it.

We were able to move around the facility with my mom in a wheelchair with little difficulty. The penguins were fun and the large tank in the lower level with the rays was fascinating.

Great thing to do in Melbourne when hiding from the rain. I actually found the Aquarium interesting and unique... It could get noisy when too much kids are present...

Regardless, Aussies like to take care of details, colours, design, and have their own style which make it stand out from other Aquariums around the world...

In one of my earlier visits they made an aquarium out of a car and you could see fish through the windsreen and windows... amazing...

My almost three year old grandson and I visited on a Saturday recently. He was wide-eyes with the piscatorial array, and none more so when the people came down the steps into the enormous fish tanks, along with their supervisor in the scuba gear, to experience the feelings of mixing with the sharks. We lasted two hours, and that's a great effort for somebody so young. It's a must see for visitors to Melbourne (anr any children!)
