Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Reviews

  • We had a lovely day with the kids, how can you go wrong at an aquarium? But to be honest there were a few things that did detract from the experience. The layout forced you to move through the aquarium in one direction, and the number of people allowed in at once meant it was impossible in most sections to linger and really enjoy any particular exhibition. It was not a major issue for us with young children who wouldn't want to linger long - but even for us, the experience did feel rushed. The aquarium looked run down and it was extremely hot in sections. The place needs some money spent on it to freshen the place up and fix the air conditioning. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the food available at the end was quick, tasty and reasonably priced. The kids really enjoyed decorating their own fish and scanning it onto the display. The touch tank was also fantastic. We also got a massive discount on our extremely convenient parking by having our ticket validated in the gift shop. The aquarium provides details on their website and it saved us almost $50 on parking! I would recommend visiting on a weekday if possible to try avoid the rush.

  • Amazing experience. Very well constructed, good explanations about what you are looking at, animal well taken care of and many diversity of marine life. Always some friendly staff around if you want to ask something. Liked the Jurassic Seas area a lot, and of course all the big fish and sharks in the tunnels. I thing it took us around 2 hours to complete it with a kid.

  • Definitely worth visiting. They have a really good range for such a small location - the penguins alone are worth the trip! The staff are great too. My only concern was how hot it was inside during summer, though it was very busy.

  • I went on a Saturday and loved many of the displays. I think the talks were very educational and the information well presented and easily digested. The tanks were well lit and clear so it was easy to spot a lot of the sea life. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. This rating would’ve been higher if I had seen staff manage children who were banging on the tanks and screaming at the animals. I feel that it would scare or disturb the animals in the tanks and that definitely affected my experience.

  • Very convenient and well located aquarium. Lots of different marine life. The penguin exhibit ride is very cool. The underwater tunnels are also very interesting Located right in the heart of Darling harbour, near King St wharf. Good fun, great for the family, well laid out so that you just walk in a circuit.
