Don't miss the new Melbourne Aquarium Seahorse Pier exhibit. Home to the world's largest collection of species from the seahorse family.

One of Australia's premier tourist attractions. Not to be missed is the 360 degree Oceanarium which houses giant sharks and stingrays. Witness the incredible live feeding presentations held twice each day.

Experience the majestic King and cheeky Gentoo Penguins in their Antarctica exhibit, and be dazzled by the Coral Atoll with its colourful coral and tropical creatures!

If you are looking for something different, a five star function at Melbourne Aquarium can turn any function into a great splash! Melbourne Aquarium boasts stylish aquatic spaces for all occasions. Whether it's a breakfast, lunch or dinner, cocktail or corporate function you're looking for, five star functions offers suitable spaces for the most intimate or extravagant event!

Melbourne Aquarium's convenient location is just a short stroll from many inner-city attractions such as the Crown Entertainment Complex and Southgate Leisure Precinct.
