School Excursions

All Year Groups

A standard AQWA Excursion offers a 2-3 hour visit to WA's dedicated major aquarium, featuring more than 45 native exhibits. Students will be entertained and educated as they explore the coastal zones of Western Australia and witness the wonder of sharks, stingrays, turtles, seahorses, octopus, jellyfish and so much more! Standard AQWA Excursions are self-guided, whereby after a greeting from an AQWA Ocean Guide group supervisors lead their groups through the exhibits.
