Discover the magical world under the sea.

Explore four exciting underwater worlds at the modern Melbourne Aquarium, including the Rainforest Adventure, home to archerfish, turtles and frogs in the tropical north and the extraordinary 360-degree Oceanarium, where you can stand in the midst of a giant fish bowl, with exotic sharks, stingrays, fish and turtles swimming around you.

There's also the Antarctica exhibit, home to majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins and other aquatic animals who come from this ice-filled part of the world, and Seahorse Pier, where you will encounter the largest collection of elegant seahorses and sea dragons in the world. And don't miss the exquisite Coral Atoll, home to magnificent coloured coral and a variety of tropical creatures.

The Aquarium offers an enchanting, interactive experience including feeding sessions twice a day, diver presentations, talks on the different environments and an opportunity to see so many of the creatures that live under the sea, including angler fish, spiky lion fish, Japanese spider crab, jellyfish, leeches, horseshoe crabs, bioluminescent fish, giant squid and much, much more.

Aside from being a popular attraction and an educational facility, Melbourne Aquarium is also a Marine Zoo dedicated to sustaining the environment and focusing on the habitats of marine animals.

Prepare yourself for an interactive and enchanting experience with the spiky lion fish, the elegant sea horses and a whole host of very unique marine creatures in the weird and wonderful. Watch the sharks feeding in the Oceanarium - a 2.2 million litre sea water home filled with turtles stingrays and hundreds of schooling fish.
