What is there to do?

Let's have an adventure under the sea! But don't worry kids, you don't really have to go under water to explore all of the amazing marine life that live there! You just have to head to the Aquarium of Western Australia!

The Aquarium of Western Australia let's you explore the 12,000km of WA coastline, all in just a few hundred metres. You can get close to the icy waters of the southern ocean in the morning, and spend the afternoon with the tropical wonderland of the coral reefs of the north.

Get ready for an underwater journey where you can discover the incredible marine life of WA!

There are over 40 stunning exhibits including one of the largest living coral reef exhibits in the world and AQWA’s shipwreck coast: Australia’s largest aquarium.

Surround yourself with sharks, stingrays and turtles in Australia’s largest walk through aquarium. Pretty impressive!

Travel beneath 3 million litres of Indian Ocean water as you have a close encounter with 4 metre sharks, huge stingrays, turtles and hundreds of stunning fish.

Face a deadly line up of marine creatures that can sting, bite or wrap their prey with suckered arms to immobilise or even kill! The DANGERzone is an eye-opening exhibit of Western Australia’s most dangerous marine life and is not to be missed.

So if you love the ocean and all that call it home, why not head on over to this amazing attraction and see it all for yourself!
