  • Self was a slight disappointment. The place itself is ok, even though it is a little old now. But more or less the same elikot as in other meriakvaaroissa. Dugongs and saw the handle I have not quite before seen.

  • After seeing the fish free in the great barrier reef, is not so nice to see them closed behind a glass. Carino path in the tunnel, we also saw the beluga. I think though that if it had not rained that afternoon, I don't think we would have walked out.

  • Beautiful aquarium~ When you enter you get to do some different poses in front of a green screen for photos to buy when you finish. They were very cute and are a fun little add to take back home. I was expecting tge place to be quite small as that's how it seemed from the outside. But it took a good 3-4 hours to walk throughout the whole place. I also loved that there were little signs about the different species within each aquarium. Would definitely recommend going~
  • A big one in darling harbour. Need to walk more. Variety of sea creatures. Easily you can spend half day. Offodable entry price. Good hotels surrounding. You can have walk in harbour. You can spend an eight hours. Must place to visit.
  • Loved it. It doesn't have as much variety as much as the London Sea Life does, but is still pretty good, and well, London didn't have any Penguins. The penguin room and underwater tunnels were great.
  • We are regular visitors here as my 3 year old loves the aquarium and the sharks here. One of the few kids activities available is for them to colour in their own sea creatures and scan it to be projected on the wall, which the kids love! The penguins room is great but bring a jacket as it's set at 4 degrees!
  • Small place in mid-city but full of attractions. Main attractions are shark, dugong and penguins. The must try if come here is "The penguin expedition boat ride" which is free. I and my kids have an amazing experience during our visit.

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
