    Great for kids! If you are worried about parking options around Manly Sea Life Sanctuary (as we all know, parking can be a pain in Manly), rest assured that the surrounding streets will offer the odd spot or two with a 2hr limit which should be sufficient for a visit. The highlight certainly is the underwater tunnel where you can get up and close with sharks, sting rays, giant turtles and so on. The kids will love it! At 11am you get the chance to witness the shark feeding – divers will join the sharks in the tank and visitors can watch this fascinating event from the underwater tunnel. On the top level you can have a look at the famous fairy penguins that call Manly their home, and it’s also the ideal place to unpack your sandwiches and enjoy the views over Manly, the harbour and even the ocean.

    I came here on a rainy day with my friend and her 18 month old boy. He absolutely loved it, especially all the huge stingrays and sharks. It’s easy to access, being a short walk from Manly Wharf, and not too expensive as a one off adventure. The interiors are a bit tired, but the animals all look well cared for.

    Really disappointing when compared to the Sydney Aquarium. Some nice things to see, but for the money it’s not great value, sadly

    Want to get the SCUBA bug then start here. I had never dived or used a SCUBA system before coming here. My wife bought me the shark dive experience as an anniversary present and at first I questioned her motives but once I was down there I realised it was one of the best presents I had ever been bought in my life. I now have my full SCUBA certification and it started with the experience I got here. The two guys who took me through were friendly and reassuring so by the time you got wet there was little to no fear left and by the end you will feel like it is too soon to leave.

    This is quite a small aquarium, but definitely worth a trip! The exhibits are very interesting and the staff are willing to answer any and all questions you may have about the exhibits. There are no elevators in the building, which can be an issue with accessibility. The shark/sting ray tunnel is definitely a great exhibit and the shark diving experience is on my bucket list!
