An awesome underwater adventure awaits you at AQWA! AQWA is WA’s premiere marine attraction located just 20 minutes north of Perth City. Discover more of WA’s spectacular marine life as you go on an underwater journey along our coast, from the icy-cold waters of the Southern Ocean to the tropical wonderland of coral reefs in the Far North. You’ll encounter sharks, stingrays and turtles, meet rare and unusual sea creatures like seadragons, be captivated by a living Coral Reef and face a dangerous and deadly line up of marine life in the DANGERzone. There’s also the chance to gently touch marine life or try an Adventure and dive into one of our aquariums! AQWA is open every day from 10am-5pm.

Went during school holidays for something to do, the place was pretty busy but plenty of room for everyone. Loved the touch pool and the underwater tunnel
