This weekend we joined some friends to visit AQWA – Perth’s Underwater Aquarium. It was such excellent fun for the kids and it was really educational too, prompting them to ask lots of new questions about the underwater world.
My husband and I – being keen scuba divers – also enjoyed imparting our knowledge of sea creatures and underwater ecosystems. I couldn’t believe I remembered stuff from year 9 biology. Phylum : porifera, mollusca, echinoderms! So random.
The place was well designed and full of different ways for the kids to interact with the environment. My 4 year old said he enjoyed the touch pool the most, while my 2 year old said he liked Nemo.
The tanks and pools were gorgeous to look at. All the marine life, water and colours were exquisite.
My only gripe was that the entry fee was SO EXPENSIVE, plus we bought lunch at the cafe. It was definitely worth a visit, but next time I should have sourced some discount vouchers or something.
