“Worth every cent of entrance fee. Been to many aquariums around the world and I would say this is one of the best for kids. Although space is quite compact, many many species and many information for kids to learn. If you are traveling with a family, this is a must go place in Sydney. High recommended. You can also buy combo deals that you can visit multiple places within walking distance.” -Zaw Min Latt

“Great atmosphere here. Orientated around kids but even as an adult my partner and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Educated staff and informative shows. Very friendly people. I spent around 3 hours here and saw most of it. Small gift shop with some great memorabilia to take home. Would recommend this to anyone, bust definitely a way to keep the kiddies happy for a day out.” -Slossage
