An underwater wonderland that is engaging, educative and entertaining…
Located on the banks of the Yarra River, Melbourne Aquarium is home to thousands of aquatic animals and is the world’s foremost exhibit of the Southern Ocean. The journey takes you over four thrilling and interactive levels, where you will meet a whole host of weird and wonderful marine life.
The most spectacular feature of the aquarium is the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, which you can experience from below, above – and if you dare – from inside! The 100 square metre ‘Fish Bowl’ viewing area allows you to see from underneath the wonderful marine creatures swimming overhead, such as sharks, stingrays, turtles, eels, snapper, salmon and many other species of fish. The Glass Bottom Boat Tour takes you above the surface of the water – allowing you to experience the wonders from a different angle.
While looking down on the Oceanarium visitors will receive an educational exploration of the behind-the-scenes action and the chance to talk to divers and marine biologists. Those feeling brave can experience the huge adrenaline rush of coming face-to-face with a shark by taking the plunge inside the Oceanarium. Diving in at the deep end for the ultimate challenge and is an experience you will never forget. The dive is suitable for both qualified and new divers, as a dive training session is included. Friends and family will watch in amazement as they see you swim past.
