It was a good experience. Unfortunately the weather was quite bad that day so a lot of people must have booked to go. We ended up going in half an hour after our allotted time (which would be fine but we were stuck standing in the rain the whole time). There were so many people there is was quite hard to get to see some of the tanks. But I’ve been before and it was great then so I just think it was bad timing this time around. The staff were really nice though considering how busy it was!

This is a smaller aquarium compared to others I have been too. I was surprised there wasn’t as much fish as I expected. The environment was dark. It was also crowded. Strollers were often blocking the middle of pathways. Sea Life should consider booking times to enter to avoid over crowding. There’s isn’t much seating along the way and it was obvious people needed to sit. It is definitely time to revamp this aquarium.

The Sydney Aquarium remains basic overall but it is true that its big + are its sharks visible from the water arch and its penguins! They are magnificent. The place is still a bit expensive.. we regret not having taken an offer to do two activities which would have been worth it in my opinion. I still recommend this activity!
