National Aquarium Of New Zealand - Review
This water zoo has been Napier’s top tourist draw for over 30 years, attracting over 250000 annually in it’s initial days, when the population of Napier itself was only 5000. 1500 animals spread across fifty species have been attracting much attention to this oceanarium. A travelator circles underneath this man made water paradise, through sharks, stingrays and crocs. A lot of the displays are dedicated to Kiwi species, one of the rare specialisations of that kind in the world. Special features to check out include the Japanese Garden, the Australian Outback, and the African Rift Valley.

National Aquarium Of New Zealand, Napier Reviews
This is a rather small aquarium, but makes very good use of the available space. A highlight (even though it is quite dark) is the live Kiwi exhibit. These elusive creatures can be seen active during the day as they have modified the daylight hours inside. But don't miss the penguins, sea turtles, and a long underwater walkway. Quite low entry fee.
Great place to take the family and wonderful variety of fish and animals. Loved the penguin cove and watching them play and looked like they loved it too. Good value for money.
The New Zealand national aquarium is definitely worth a visit. Set aside a good 2 to 3 hours to view the displays. I certainly enjoyed my time there. It isn't Sea World, Marine Land or Jack Evan's Porpoise Pool.
Nice cool place to visit. Cool to see the penguin. Turtle and alligators. But would love to see more fish and interactive activities like in the Melbourne Aquarium.
Amazing place! I saw Kiwis in real life for the first time! Also the closest I have ever seen a blue penguin. As an adult I still get excited to see all sorts of animals. This aquarium is very well organised. With big variety of see creatures and nice environment, I definitely recommend this place!
