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 - Write a Review

  • Came here to swim with sharks, was not disappointed. The aquarium is pretty nice as well. Plenty of information and the staff is very knowledgeable. Worth a visit if you're in the area.

  • Absolute must do ! Vast collection of exhibits, loads of information on the various species within. Something enthralling for every age group. I live locally and still never tire of yet another return trip.

  • Amazing displays and interesting facts about the sea creatures. Clean and tidy. Friendly staff and a well laid out aquarium. Imagine what it would be like if Government spent more money on it!

  • Excellent place to take all the family, my first time here and really enjoyed the experience. It will be even better when they do the extensions. Will go again.

  • We have a year pass so my daughter and I can visit when we like. It's such a lively atmosphere and my little girl loves it. The staff are lovely and the animals are very well loved.
