My 2 grandchildren and I enjoyed all aspects of the Aquarium. Some areas were a little bit crowded for the young ones to get a good view, but that is not anything anyone can change . We must return next year .

We took our grandchildren aged 3 1/2 and 22 months. All had a marvelous time. Highly recommended. Best zoo experience for all ages. A must do in Melbourne.

The day was full of opportunity and can be a fun outing for people of all ages! The food was great and everything can be found in convenient locations.

Great set up. My grandchildren loved the huge crab and lobsters near the entrance. Amazing variety of sea life. The movie was a fun idea.

Hassle free ticket booking. We were able to get the zoo tickets from the counter easily.
