This place was amazing! We went with three teenage boys who actually said they thought it may be a little boring and walked out telling how awesome it was. A marine scientist actually guides the group through and explains everything about each creature that you see. He even managed to keep it entertaining! It is far more exciting and interesting...

We made the day trip from Carnarvon (3 hours away), and started off with having lunch out on the deck, followed by the aquarium tour. The food was great, the tour was run by staff who explained all the sea creatures so well, made time to answer a 6 year olds questions, and really enjoyed their job.

We enjoyed a very interesting visit to Ocean Park Aquarium. There is also a great café there and you can access the café without actually paying to go into the Aquarium. The prices in the café were very reasonable.

Went for breakfast before the tour started - fabulous scenery up and down the west coast. Tour guide was excellent, knew her information. Nicely set out and easy to walk through. Was disappointed with the shark tank - tho wasn't really sure what to expect. The sharks are so used to being fed fish everyday that it's become a ritual... More

This isn't your usual aquarium in that you walk through unguided glass tanks and admire the sea creatures. You actually start a guided tour the moment you step in - and I must say I am very impressed by the knowledgeable guides. You walk through to every tank with them - and they can tell you the details right down... More

During a stay at Monkey Mia we were researching things to do, we noticed an article - diving with sharks in an aquarium at Ocean Park. We’re both keen divers & are always looking to dive new experiences. We phoned to enquire further; it was clear from talking through the experience that they were well prepared & knew what they...

Fabulous, amazing and spectacular! We spent in the beginning of October 2016 a full day with two wonderful and passionate marine biologists Emma & Ed from the Ocean Park Aquarium and another family on a beautiful boat: we had the best day ever in our holidays...in Shark Bay. A spectacular day doing snorkeling, seeing Steep Point, the cliffs and the... More

This was the second attraction we visited while driving towards Denham and it wasn't the usual glass fish tanks type of aquarium. In fact, it was quite interesting and educational. There was a guide to lead and explain pool by pool. The shark lagoon was huge and quite scary when walking on the platform above it. Think this attraction is... More
