The aquarium for an adult is $20 and you see a total of 6 tanks. If you don’t do the research before hand and find out the turtle feeding times it’s not worth it.

Yes it is a small aquarium, don’t even try and compare to Mooloolaba. The staff are dedicated and knowledge. We spent about an hour and a half including the turtle feeding. Take some time have a look and a read. A great little place.

It costs $20 per adult and $10 for children 3 - 14 years old as per their Facebook page. This is what we paid when we visited in September.
