It appeared that a lot of the animals had been rescued for the wild and that is why they were in the zoo. I heard a story on the radio in 2004 I think about the shark tank glass breaking here and the sharks and all the water spilling onto about seven patrons of the aquarium. It was interesting because they had so many native species, but I might venture to say that it was a little odd. We were there in the beginning of Australia's winter, so that may have had something to with it.
I was reminded by the movie Finding Nemo when I visited the Sydney Aquarium, as most of the aqua life I saw there were featured in the movie.
This aquarium has a great variety of Australian marine life; from sharks and rays to seals and platypus.
It has the typical underwater tunnel thingy, but also some informative exhibitions that won’t bore you.
Sydney Aquarium is a must-see, and one of the best things to do in Sydney. Walk under water and explore Australia's rich and diverse aquatic life and habitats. A trip to Sydney Aquarium is fantastic fun for kids, family and friends.
I dont like this kind of visit but after the visit of the sydney Aquarium I was really astonished .
Sydney Aquarium is one of the largest aquariums in the world with more than 5000 different fishes displayed in their natural environment. You cant be so near to sharks in any other place...
The Sydney Aquarium is a fun and educational place to go alone or with family. The aquarium holds a huge number of aquatic life and their habitats. Rather than watching animals is a small tank, these sea life have been allocated a large place for them to live and interact with other sea life. It's open everyday from 9.00am to 10.00pm

I arrived in Sydney from Perth sometime in February just shortly before St. Patricks day adn I tell you it was pretty cold, only about 15-18% Centigrade.... I did not expect that kind of weather and had no sweater in my bags.....
so, what was I to do?
I decided to spend the whole day at the Sydney Aquarium inside the building where it was comfortably warm...... on my way out though I bought a blue sweatshirt with an Aboriginal print of "Dolphin dreaming" and I still have this one as it is my favourite.
Come and see the Sydney's #1 attraction and witness the great white sharks and many more.
Price per adult : AUD$23

If you went to Sydney and didn't go to the aquarium, i suggest you turn right back round and go!!
This is the most amazing aquarium I have been to ever! And i have been to my fair share!! The fish and other aquatic animals were amazing and so colourful, many of them you would never see otherwise, even if you went scuba diving!
It was not too expensive and they offer student discount, provided you have proof of this. Its great for people of all ages too...just great fullstop i guess!!
From the outside, not much to look at. But we had a great time on the inside. My daughter and I were very much fascinated by the platypus -- platupuses -- platypi -- oh, whatever they are in multiple. They rock this world! Soon I will post some of the three billion pictures we took of the platy(pi?).
But there was much more to see. One of the weirdest things was a huge ray. I can't even begin to describe the size of the thing and it was lying on the tube over our heads in the shark walk through. Very bizarre.
The Sydney Aquarium has the largest collection of sea animals in the country. There are over 11000 animals of around 650 species. The highlights of the museum are the 145m long tubes that run through the huge water tank, that includes sharks and lots of other fish. Other aquariums have pinguins, sea lions and of course lots and lots of fish in them. This is the best aquarium I have been to so far.
If you would like to see some of the animals you can find in the Aquarium take a look at my Sydney Aquarium travelogue.
