A great value! A great aquarium. I've visited it each of the three times I have been in Sydney, and will visit the Aquarium again when I go in late December 2006, and in July 2007. Yes, its that good! Be sure and take your time and enjoy the exhibits. There is alot to see, and since you'll be on vacation, take your time. You'll love the underwater tunnels where you can watch large sharks and manta rays swim around and above you. A must see!
I loved the Sydney aquarium because of many reasons; the first reason is that the selection of fish that they have are quite incredable and some (Rainbowfish) are available at your local fish shop. You can stare at the fish for hours and hours and still find it very enjoyable and interesting and there were many useful facts about the fish that were just in front of you in those enormous and very atractive looking tanks. Another thing that made me love the Sydney Aquarium is the tanks themselfs. They resembaled the natural habitat of each and every fish species that they were looking after. If you prefere Marine fish then you can look at the Marine section and if you were interested in Freshwater species then you would go to the Freshwater section. They have even got a Crocadile there!
The price is just slightly more than i would have liked however but they need the cash.
Just went to the Aquarium for the second time and really enjoyed it although I wouldn't consider it the best acquarium I've seen (Chicago and Monterey acquariums are more impressive). What's nice is that it specializes in Australia's marine life and covers all areas well. Most spectacular are the exhibits where you walk through glass tunnels while fish and sharks swim around you. Those exhibits alone are worth the entry fee.
