Very friendly! 45 minute guided tour- perfect amount of time to see the wonderful range of aquatic animals they had on show. Kids loved it- you are very close up to the tanks. The seahorse touch pool was a winner. Well worth the visit.

Well we were intrigued to hear more about these little creatures so we paid for a tour and it was a small group, thank goodness and we enjoyed learning so much about the seahorses and their breeding programme. Great for school excursions.

We had this one on a must do list and thoroughly recommend the visit to everyone. The visit to the platypus aquarium next door added to the trip, especially the cute echidnas coming out for a tit-bit,

What amazing work they are doing at this working farm. You get to see day old seahorses and feed them. They take you on a 40 minute tour of the aquariums and at the end you get to hold a seahorse. Well worth tbe visit.

Warm and friendly welcome folloed by a very informative tour. Some other species of fish plus a 'handling' experience was an added bonus. We would highly recommend.

Thanks to everyone who have made comment on the question since I have been away a couple of days. We feed the seahorses a local shrimp, which they love. As others suggested, in the wild they will also eat small fish and... More

The feed is given to you by the operators you cannot provide food for them yourself. This is a commercial operation.

Hello, the guided tour takes the best part of one hour. There is a DVD playing in the foyer about seadragons that you can choose to watch and takes about 20 minutes. Next door to us is Platypus House that many people visit... More
