    I went to AQWA for my sons third birthday last year with my wife and our son, obviously, and found they need a cheaper admission price, Back In nz @ Kelly Tarltons it was only 50.00 family pass, and we spent have the day there and there were 6 of us, but besides the price, my son enjoyed the interactive actions with the stingrays, and those blue mini sharks, need more turtles, sharks and other fish of interest, but all in all, was good, not great, but good.

    lovely aquarium but as a local resident spoiled for me a bit since there are no annual passes. with an annual pass i would be in here often especially when am in hilarys just for a quick view of my favorite fish and a coffee at lovely cafe. as it is with cost i go in once every 18months because for cost i need to make an afternoon of it. please bring in an annual pass….aquapass just does not cut it. i also find the attitude of mgmt and staff here a bit aloof and not very friendly (though dive guide was nice)

    This is not a huge aquarium along the lines of the London or Sydney ones. It is however very much geared towards tiny people. You can take toddler and pre schoolers here and they’ll actually be able to participate, look through the magnifying glasses at tiny clown fish and sea horses or pet tiny sharks and rays in the touch pool. Each display has a little stool inset so smaller people can see the contents and there are tanks set up on the ground so little ones can easily see everything. The best bit, as everyone else says, is the walk through with the sharks, huge rays and fish swimming above you. It’s pretty full on and I couldn’t do it first time around (had to work up to it). But for those that aren’t so sissy it’s great. (I love it now!). Like all tourist attractions it’s pricey but it’s also good, especially for smaller children. If you intend to visit often get an annual visitor card. it’s not an annual pass but the price decreases after your first visit and then your fourth visit that calendar year is free. Children under 4 are free anyway. There are several toilets and baby/family rooms along with a nice cafe at the top with a bar and stunning views across the harbour and Indian Ocean.

    We took our boys aged 6 and 8 to Aqua. Its the first time I have been. It cost nearly $80 for the four of us which I thought was a bit expensive as it only took about 90 minutes to go through the displays.However, the quality of the aquariums was excellent and especially the way they were organised to show the mainly reef marine environments around Western Australia. I learnt a lot, but it was difficult to stop the boys rushing at great speed from one exhibit to another.The highlight was the glass tunnel under the aquarium with huge sharks and thousands of other sea creatures.Well worthwhile visiting for both children and adults but to get full value you need time to read about the exhibits and with young children that may be difficult
