What is there to do?

The ocean is a magical place, but you don't have to actually venture under the water to experience it all! All you need, is an aquarium like National Park Aquarium, which has over 60 exhibits to explore!

Throughout these exhibits, you will come across over 300 animals, each housing some amazing and unique creature. From fish to reptiles, you would never have guessed under the ocean would have been so colorful!

From freshwater fish, to salamaders, to frogs, tortoises and lizards, these animals are waiting to be learnt about.

Kids will love walking through the exhibits, looking at the various species. There will certainly be plenty they have never seen before too! Kids - when you walk around, imagine what it would be like to be in their shoes (or flippers!)

Don't forget to read all of the information on the creatures as you walk around. Learning is so much fun, but it's so much more fun when you can SEE what you're learning about right in front of you!

So why not experience what lies beneath the waters of our planet at the National Park Aquarium. It's a family day out with a difference!
