Melbourne Aquarium

Though it faces stiff competition from the likes of Sydney Aquarium, the Aquarium of Western Australia and the National Zoo and Aquarium in Canberra, Melbourne’s very own marine life museum may be the best in the country. Open since 2000, Melbourne Aquarium is a supremely modern facility. Located rather appropriately on the shores of the Yarra River in the city’s Central Business District, the aquarium concentrates on marine life from the Antarctic and southern oceans.

Exhibits or “worlds” on display at the museum include Antarctica, Weird & Wonderful, River to Reef and Sharks Alive. In addition to regular tours, the aquarium hosts a variety of special events throughout the year. As such, visitors can dive with sharks, have breakfast with penguins or even enjoy Friday night cocktails amid a colourful show of marine creatures. Melbourne Aquarium’s CBD address makes it easily accessible from a wide variety of hotels and points of interest in the city.

Melbourne Aquarium is across the river from the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex.

The aquarium is open every day of the year from 9:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. It takes just over two hours to fully experience the museum’s marine life exhibits.
