The AQWA Exhibits
From icy waters to tropical wonderlands, you’ll explore unique coastal zones and stunning themed exhibits
The exhibits have been created to replicate the beautiful natural surroundings of each animal. AQWA does not use any artificial coral and the spectacular shapes and colour of each unique coral have been cultivated by the very experienced Team. AQWA is one of the very few aquariums worldwide that doesn’t use artificial corals in its exhibits.
Great Southern Coast
Descend into the icy waters of the Great Southern, where wind and waves from Antarctica shape isolated shores. Protected amongst the granite boulders are idyllic sheltered bays - here you'll find obscure and rare sea creatures life seadragons and pineapplefish!
Travel on our moving conveyor belt, through Australia’s largest single aquarium and underwater tunnel to discover giant sharks, stingrays, turtles and hundreds of shimmering temperate fish. Stretching from Lancelin to Kalbarri, the jagged red-rock cliffs and protruding limestone reefs of this region once sent many unprepared ships to their peril.!
Meet the charismatic creatures of the Perth Coast; like the gloomy octopus, western rock lobsters, blue devil, Australian cuttlefish and gobbleguts fish! The stunning white sandy beaches of our metropolitan coast flow into flat seafloors, vibrant seagrass beds, little islands and limestone reefs.
Far North Coast
From the tropical wonderland of corals reefs in Ningaloo to the muddy mangrove flats of Kununurra, the northern coast is as ancient as the Earth and remains an untouched beauty. Meet colourful characters like "Nemo", watch the flux of delicate soft corals and don't forget to smile at a baby crocodile as you explore the north.
Coral Reef Exhibit
The jewel in AQWA's crown is the Coral Reef, one of the world's largest living coral exhibits. This bustling underwater city features the many reef-building native corals of Rottnest Island and Perth, amid intricate limestone structures. Sit back in comfortable seating and enjoy the kaleidoscope of life and colour.
Danger Zone Exhibit
Face a deadly lineup of marine creatures that can sting, stab, punch and bite to immobilise or even kill! The DANGERzone is an eye-opening exhibit of Western Australia’s most dangerous marine life and is not to be missed.
Glowing Ocean Exhibit
AQWA's newest exhibit is a celebration of light and colour! Our immersive UV lighting delivers a patchwork quilt of glowing corals and highlights the otherwise invisible fluorescent details of reef fish and anemones.
