About

___

Take the ultimate undersea safari at Blue Reef Aquarium. Enjoy incredibly close encounters with seahorses, native sharks, giant octopus and hundreds of amazing aquatic creatures. At the aquarium’s heart is a giant ocean display - walk through an underwater tunnel and come face to face with shoals of colourful fish.

Visit today and explore the Jungle Room housing exotic snakes and curious bearded dragons. Face your fears and get hands on with the reptiles during daily animal encounters.

Blue Reef also offers informative, entertaining talks and feeding displays throughout the day so there’s plenty to do during your visit
