We have taken our kids there twice now. It's a bit expensive for the short time it takes to go through, but if you time it to watch a show there as well, that helps make it longer. My kids love the underwater tunnel and the jelly fish displays. Staff can be a little pushy about taking photos and trying... More

Sometimes it's nice to get out of the wind and heat, yet still be under the water without getting wet. Although not the biggest public aquarium I've seen, this one is pretty good, great viewing opportunities and a great range of sea creatures on show. well worth it.

Thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. Purchased online tickets and saved $15 for 2 adults. Seal presentation was good although very warm waiting an extra 10 minutes for the show to start

We went during the busy Christmas holidays but still had a great time. There's a wonderful variety of creatures on display and it was especially interesting to read about the conservation efforts Underwater World is involved in.

It was worth the crowds to explore the sea life. The Jurassic exhibition was disappointing but worth a look. Very humid and crowded watching the seal talk. Had to squeeze close together for other people to fit on the hard bench seats to watch the seals but was worth it. The jellyfish exhibition was lovely with the different colours. The... More

A good display and good selection of sea life both in the small aquariums and the walk through tunnel. Being school holidays there were many people inside and a queue outside. They also except companion cards. The noise level was quite high with many children so may not be ASD friendly. Parking was difficult near by this time of the... More

It was generally very interesting for the kids when they could get close to the tanks as it was so busy. The advertised exhibit, Jurassic Seas was a disappointment. One little side room with a few tanks made to look like dinosaur bones. We didn't stay long as it was just too crowded and we were thankful that we have... More

Well worth the visit considering it was hot & humid outside. Kids enjoyed the seal show. I enjoyed the talk around billabong and rays. Also had a kids play area, which was great. The tunnel was the highlight of the attraction. Jelly fish and the corals were awesome.

We visited with young children and at first thought it would be a quick walk round. It actually we spent hours going from one thing to another as the kids loved watching the fish and sea life. There were interactive displays for the children and being able to see the crocodile and turtles as ground level and underwater level was... More
