we watched the sunset on the skydeck! heh, i always go to these towers during dusk as you get to see the day scene and the night scene if you stay late enough. it was reaalllyy crowded though, many others had the same idea.
we went to the aquarium in the morning. took the free tram yay! one stop after to pick up our tickets and walk back, the shortest walk ever, really. great aquarium... aquariums are always so fascinating under the sea is always a curious place.
A truly memorable experience. One of the best aquariums we have visited.
Can't speak highly enough of the aquarium, even the view from the lunch cafe was nice. Eureka sky deck was great fun, despite being scared of heights I braved it and did the edge experience and it was excellent! Terrifying but well worth the extra money.
Loved going to the Aquarium it was well done, the scenery was like a wonder land . The fish all looked healthy and the under water coral were so colourful . I really enjoyed watching the children from the local Schools faces ,as the staff did a good job of answering their questions. Watching the Sharks and Stingrays which were so huge swimming over you in the tunnels is fantastic . Having a Coffee overlooking the Melbourne river just finished a lovely day out .
The Eureka tower gives you a Beautiful view of Melbourne . Melbourne Aquarium is awesome a must visit for the whole family.
Great deal! Just not the right day to go up the tower as I wanted to watch the sun set but it was too cloudy. Wish I can go up again.
Aquarium was fun.
Loved the penguins and other ecosystems! It is a huge aquarium!
We had a great time at the Aquarium. There were lots of people but we had no trouble viewing the exhibits. The special talks by staff were especially interesting. Glad we arrived early line up later was very long.
My Granddaughter and I visited The Aquarium and both thoroughly enjoyed her experience. Her comment was that it was "COOL" G James
Great aquarium! Lots to see and learn about :-)
We enjoyed our trips to the Aquarium, Skydeck and Gaol immensely. My husband is an avid aquarium fan, having 4 fish tanks at home, and found the whole visit amazing. We took my son and his girlfriend with us to the skydeck and all 4 of us found the place fantastic. What views over the city!! We went to the Gaol the next day...very interesting but a bit weird in places...the death masks to name one thing!! We have some great photos to remind us of our stay.Christine. Leicester
A gorgeous aquarium and a wonderful experience! No queueing required makes the visit even better.
These tickets were great, just jumped ahead of everyone. Only problem was that I only had my e-voucher and they needed a hard copy so i had to e-mail mine to the aquarium e-mail. Other than that these are great and the aquarium is amazing
Purchasing our tickets online before we arrived was the best thing we did. Not only was it $5 cheaper each but the 'skip the line' service saved us waiting in line for 20 minutes with our 1 year old! The Melbourne Aquarium is a great and fun way to spend an afternoon.
Must be the best way to get into the aquarium full stop. I showed the email confirmation I was sent after booking the tickets online to one of the aquarium staff managing the line to get in and she took us straight to the front counter and in we went. The aquarium is definitely worth seeing and it has my favourite animal in the world - the leafy sea dragon. All round pleased.
The aquarium is a must-see. There are so many amazing exhibitions in addition to the big ones like the walk through oceanarium and the penguins. My 6 year old was captivated for 2 hours so that's how good it was. Highly recommended! Also smooth booking process with Viator, trouble free ticketing and good savings made.
The Aquarium was a nice way to spend a rainy day!
I went to visit Melbourne Aquarium to see the penguins. Initially we wanted to do the penguin passport tour they had available but unfortunately there was only one spot left. We decided to check out the aquarium any way. The aquarium is much the same as Sydney aquarium however the penguin exhibit was pretty cool. I would definitely go back to see it again. The skip the line tickets were great also - make sure you print the voucher just to be safe.
Aquarium very interesting we got abit lost in the mase! Cafe needs food variety!
Skydeck 88 was great we loved the king hong theme got profession photo awesome! overcast :-( still enjoyed ourselves. Cafe needs food variety.
Melbourne goal Ned Kelly interesting!Watchhouse tour not happy with!
It was great to be able to walk into the aquarium and not have to line up to get tickets. I would recommend these tickets to anyone who wants to have a hassle free visit. The penguins were exquisite. A great day out.
Great experience with all 3 attractions, Aquarium was brilliant, fantastic views from Eureka 88 not too scary , and Gaol was very interesting, highly recommend this activity
Was not really busy the time we went but there were alot of school groups that came after. Aquarium had some variety of displays and sea life. The best display to watch were the Penguins... so energetic and fun. There were a few baby penguins at the time too :D
The aquarium was great but the toilets were filthy. The disabed toilet was in with the baby change room and there were dirty nappies all over the floor.
The experience was wonderful. My wife , my 2yr old son and I arrived at the aquarium at about 11:00am and we just sailed through the line. Went straight to the front, didnt have to stand in the long queue and we were in... Twas a great experience.
Aquarium is worth visiting for the penguins alone, was slightly disappointed in the lack of coral displays though. Also could have had a 20% discount just by using voucher from the freely available Melbourne Visitor books you find in hotels and tourist info booths. (Viator was 10%) No queue at all the time we went, so maybe the skip the line thing might prove worthwhile for the lesser discount if it were busy
