SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium Reviews
Great experience. My 8year old really enjoyed herself and so did I. We loved it so much that we walked back to the beginning and went around the aquarium again. more »
If you are claustrophobic, there are areas you probably want to miss, especially if it is peak periods. I'm not and it still felt cramped. Lots of prams to avoid too If you can book ahead, it's worth ... more »
Friendly staff, clean environment and a variety of fish species. However, I felt it wasn't really worth the price; too expensive for the experience. There wasn't interesting stories about these animals, I think there could be many interesting stories like what these small fish do under big fish? Any social/group behaviour about any fish type? Where they exist in the world? How they are connected to the biodiversity and coral life? I didn't learn anything - you just look at them and pass by them most of the time. I just think it could have been different. Maybe there is no place offering such things but it felt kinda void to me. Besides that, they take a picture of you, and sell the album with 39 dollars which they already made. I didn't accept but what are you gonna do with these albums? Throw it away... Basically not sustainable especially if you are promoting to keep the environment clean.
I really loved coming here. The pricing was okay if you got it online. Some amazing sea life to check out, the sting rays and sharks were huge! Had a good level of extra things for the kids and we got to see a few feedings as well. They have a huge crocodile as well which was really special to see.
