Melbourne Aquarium Tours

74 reviews
All things fishy swim inside the Melbourne Aquarium, right beside the Yarra River in central Melbourne. The focus is on creatures from the Southern Ocean. Penguins are a particular highlight, along with other Antarctic creatures. Those who dare swim with the sharks, while more gentle creatures swim in the coral atoll, rock pools, mangroves and billabongs.

Creatures from around Australia swim in the River to the Reef exhibit, while Weird and Wonderful highlights nature’s variety – from Nemo clownfish to scuttling crabs and UV-lit transparent sea jellies. Another star attraction is the creepy Oceanarium, with its viewing fishbowl filled with gray nurse sharks, stingrays and turtles.

Practical Info

Melbourne Aquarium is an easy stroll from either Flinders Street Station or Southern Cross Station. Trams run along Flinders Street, including the free Tourist Shuttle, dropping you outside the aquarium. You can also walk across the Yarra River to reach here from the Crown Entertainment Complex.
