Had fun, not worth the cost though.
We had a fantastic time. No line to get in as we prepaid, loved all the sea life. Loved the layout and the numbering so we couldn’t miss anything. We stayed around 2 hours. Was really fun. However, $188 for a family of 5 for entry. And $77 to park in a nearby carpark. Can not justify that at all.

We had a great half day at the Aquarium. My toddler loved it. We chose to go after the school holidays for it to be less busy but didnt realise that there could be a school group. So it was a but busier than we anticipated. Staff are friendly and helpful. All the displays were clean and looked well maintained. The animals looked healthy and well cared for.
