Visit The Fabulous Melbourne Aquarium
The Melbourne Aquarium offers an amazing underwater journey filled with beautiful and amazing aquatic animals.

The Melbourne Aquarium has a new exhibit called Seahorse Pier. This new section of the aquarium is now home to the world’s largest collection of species from the seahorse family. Fantastic for both kids and kids at heart, experience a rainbow of stunning colours and weird and wonderful creatures in their mystically-themed underwater wonderland. The exhibit is also home to Melbourne Aquarium’s internationally-recognised Weedy Seadragon breeding program and dedicated seahorse breeding facility.
Melbourne Aquarium is one of Australia’s premier tourist attractions. A must see while at the aquarium is the 360 degree Oceanarium which houses giant sharks and stingrays. Be witness the incredible live feeding presentations held twice each day.
Another part of the Melbourne Aquarium that is truly an amazing experience is the beautiful Great Barrier Reef exhibit. Be exposed to the touch pools, a literally hands on experience that is not only great for the kids, but adults will have an incredible time as well. See the coral atoll with its colourful coral and tropical creatures.
Those of you feeling brave enough can actually dive in at the deep end and experience the huge adrenaline rush of swimming face-to-face with the sharks in the Oceanarium, with Shark Dive Xtreme.
Just remember that the Melbourne Aquarium is quite a large place, so it’s suggested that visitors should allow approximately two hours for their tour of the aquarium.
Melbourne Aquarium’s convenient location is a just a short stroll from many inner-city attractions as well as fabulous Melbourne CBD accommodation at Punthill Apartment Hotels.
