Sydney Aquarium

Member Rating 3 out of 5 by Emms137 on July 2, 2005

The Sydney Aquarium is one of the finest aquariums I have visited. The displays are well laid-out and contain a good deal of information, which is well-written and interesting. There are three big exhibits: sharks, Great Barrier Reef, and seals. These are all well displayed, and the seal exhibit, for example, offers above-water and underwater viewing points, and the shark exhibit is a walk-through aquarium.

A typical aquarium visit lasts a few hours. The aquarium is open late (10pm) and is fun to visit at night. The crowds are also smaller at night. You can take the ferry to the aquarium, which is a lot of fun. Discount adult ferry/aquarium tickets are available at the ferry terminal at Circular Quay. There are also combo ticket packages available (Sky tower, aquarium, etc.), which would be worth looking into if you plan on visiting many places in Sydney.
