    Shark in the oceanarium

    The Sydney Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in the world and is a great display of harbour marine life and other sea creatures. The best part is walking through the large oceanariums in tunnels surrounded by glass with sharks and large fish swimming all around you.

    The aquarium is broken into 4 sections - Northern Oceans, Southern Oceans, Northern Rivers, and Southern Rivers. Features include crocodiles, platypus, seals, and tropical fish. There is also a touch pool, gift shop, and restaurant.

    Admission is AU$24 for adults and $12 for children. Students can get in for $16. The Aquarium is open daily from 9 AM to 10 PM.

    Sydney Aquarium has a lot to offer to those who wish to see the creatures of the deep without actually getting wet. It showcases aquatic life from all the differents waters around Australia, as well as within it. Over 650species, all in all. There're two large oceanariums, a seal sanctuary, a penguin habitat, and many other wonderous things to explore.

    The Sydney Aquarium is one of the largest and most spectacular Aquariums in the world. Sydney Aquarium is renowned for its unique display of Australian aquatic life.



    Walk through tunnels beneath the sea and get close to the largest sharks you'll ever see. Enjoy the colour and the magic of live coral and myriads of tropical fish in the Great Barrier Reef display (see picture).

    This place is larger than it looks from the outside. Has an excellent collection of fish and other animals. Another good thing is this is one of the few attractions open in the evening.

    Austin up close with the fish

    Awesome place to take a 2yr old. Interesting displays, my boy loved the fish that looked like "Nemo". Great to see sharks and seals up close. Thoroughly recommend having a look.

    duck-billed platypus at the Sydney Aquarium

    This place is huge and well worth the price. Go underneath a glass tunnel and see huge sharks and other marine life. Where else can you see a duck-billed platypus? Buy tix online for a 10% discount.
