AQWA Opens New “Adventure Bay”
AQWA’s brand new exhibit and interaction zone “Adventure Bay” is now open!
Adventure Bay is an outdoor aquarium and activity hub, home to a toddler playground, amphitheatre, kiosk café and alfresco area overlooking the Hillarys Boat Harbour. The area has been redeveloped with value-adding interaction in mind and to take advantage of the sun-soaked seaside location.
The raised Adventure Bay aquarium will feature local marine life that will be introduced over the coming months, which can be viewed from a large front panel, a side portal and an overlooking platform.
AQWA General Manager John Lowe is thrilled with the design and functionality of the new area,
“There is nothing like this anywhere in Perth. This redeveloped area at AQWA is the perfect coastal setting for a wide range of activities,” he said.
Starting Boxing Day the aquarium will be the new playground for the Perth Mermaids, who will perform each day from Dec 26 – Jan 1, as well as each Monday until April for Mermaid Mondays. Their magical underwater shows delight children (and children at heart) and are included free with your AQWA entry.
Scuba Santa will also be plunging into Adventure Bay on Christmas Eve at 12noon. This event is a family favourite for Perth locals and is included in your AQWA entry, so bring the kids for an underwater present hunt with Santa and to check out the new aquarium.
Adventure Bay will soon play host to AQWA’s three new dive and snorkel Adventure programs and free children’s activities, as well as operate after hours as a unique function and event venue.
