Whether visiting Sydney or a resident the beautiful aquatic sea life currently residing at Sydney Aquarium is simply beautiful. As a Sydney resident I still find the underwater viewing tunnels to be the highlight where you can walk through at your own pace and watch as sharks, dugongs, turtles, Nemo's mates and a variety of sea life swim above your head. The downside unfortunately is the price which for a large family can be completely out of the budget.
I visited the Sydney Aquarium recently and was amazed with the variety of sea creatures at display. The best part of aquarium is the water tunnel, where you can see huge fishes, sharks, dugongs floating all over you! Enjoyed my visit. Also the jelly fishes were amazing!!
This is one of my favourite places in Sydney. I like that there are a few spots to stop and sit down with a view of the tank and lovely music. The walkway where you are walking over the tank is cool too. The lady looking after the touch tank was extremely friendly, informative and made it alot of fun!
The best aquarium I have been to. The underwater tunnels with the sharks swimming over your head and the great big reef exhibit are the best bits. My daughter loved it. Good value too with the annual pass
Incredible. You can see all sorts of aquatic animals up and around you as you walk through the tunnel. But expensive. Worth a visit just to see the walk through aquarium but I think they could provide a bit more for the $ you pay.
The wow factor of this place never seems to fade. It is amazing having huge sharks, green sea turtles, rays, and more recently dugongs swimming over your head. All the species appear really healthy & well cared for & the water is always clean and full of other amazing sea life. The corals & tropical fish are spectacular, as are the enormous crabs, lobsters & exquisitely beautiful sea horses & jelly fish. The aquarium can get packed during the school holidays, but there are lovely areas where you can stop & relax while watching fish swim by. A really nice outing!
The highlight of the Sydney aquarium was being able to walk through a glass tunnel and to see the sharks and stingrays swim over and all around you. There are also seals that are excellent to get a few photos in front of and keep the kids entertained, as they are more animated than most fish are.
