    This is a fantastic aquarium complimented with interesting information talks that are very visitor friendly for children and adults alike. The static information displays are very readable, nice big print, the live exhibits fascinating to watch at such close quarters. It was a pleasure to spend a couple of hours there.

    Both my niece and I were very impressed with the set-out of the aquarium and the fish displays. It was great to just sit and watch the numerous fishes, sharks, rays etc just swimming past. We tried to find everything that was listed and enjoyed our time communicating. Congratulations on an impressive display! The staff were very friendly and helpful. I had originally bought our ticket for a different day and was able to change to another day without any issues,. Thank you for an enjoyable fishy encounter.

    It was an easy to find experience,located just within a minutes footpath away from the Esplanade, in the very heart of Cairns. We visited the Aquarium with my life and experienced something like never before. We managed to see the sharks and mantra rays feeding show,which by the way was really spectacular! We were able to take part in every seminar over there,so we did learn a lot more about the marina life. We bought extra experience for 12AUD each - 5D show, actually there were 2 shows in total. I recommend it to you all guys who like the marina world life
