No need to pack your swimsuit for this underwater adventure, which takes you on a journey from local waters to the more exotic over 40 different displays. Marvel at the graceful black tip reef shark, which can grow to almost 2 metres in length and watch the cownose rays and colourful fish swim above your head as you walk through the ocean tunnel.

Over on the native sandy seabeds see sharks and rays gracefully swimming. Spot the reef fish that speed around the coral and watch out for the claws of the crabs, lobsters and shrimps!

Stay dry while exploring the ocean!
