The marine biologist has a continual guided tour through the centre. Wherever you join the tour you can follow on from there until you've completed a full circuit or take a break and comeback anytime to join in again. It takes about an hour or so to see all the creatures. I'm a keen fisherman and I learnt a lot... More

Great for the kids to interact with the fish and turtles, watch the shark feeding and hear about the conservation and future for the area.

Started with a good coffee then an informative and interesting talk by 2 very knowledgeable marine biologists. We learnt a great deal. A must visit when in Denham.

I enjoyed our trip to the Aquarium, despite being a bit under the weather myself (don't cope well with heat). They had a good array of animals, and the animals seemed quite friendly/inquisitive, so would often come close to the edge which gave great photo opportunities. I thought $25 per adult was a fair price, particularly for the area, where... More

The aquarium is about 10 minutes drive out of Denham. Unlike most aquaria, you have a conducted tour (about one hour) here with a knowledgeable biologist. So you not only see the sea life. It you also learn a lot about them too. Shark feeding is good fun but there are lots of other creatures and interesting facts to find... More

What a fantastic and interesting tour. The guides are very knowledgable and the concept of joining the tour at any stage and just keep going non stop help saves time.

This place was amazing! We went with three teenage boys who actually said they thought it may be a little boring and walked out telling how awesome it was. A marine scientist actually guides the group through and explains everything about each creature that you see. He even managed to keep it entertaining! It is far more exciting and interesting...

We made the day trip from Carnarvon (3 hours away), and started off with having lunch out on the deck, followed by the aquarium tour. The food was great, the tour was run by staff who explained all the sea creatures so well, made time to answer a 6 year olds questions, and really enjoyed their job.
