Yes, you will find references to "Finding Nemo" all over the Aquarium. The film is, after all, set in Sydney. Nemo and his buddies swim just off the shore.

The Aquarium is open until 10:00pm, so you can do this as part of a longer day of seeing the sights ... most things close down at 5:00. You will get up close looks at many creatures you usually won't see without scuba tanks. (Since my trip to the reef got rained out, I saw things I didn't get to see with scuba tanks.)

There are a couple of places where you walk *though* a glass tunnel in the middle of a larger tank, with sharks and other creatures swimming above, below and beside you. I don't have kids myself, but every kid I saw there was just delighted.
