The AQWA Exhibits
From icy waters to tropical wonderlands, you’ll explore five diverse discovery zones.
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.
Descend into the icy waters of the Great Southern, where wind and waves from Antarctica shape isolated granite shores. Protected amongst the granite boulders are idyllic sheltered bays with snow-white sandy beaches and crystal clear seas - here you'll find obscure and rare sea creatures.
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. Travel on our moving conveyor belt, through Australia’s largest single aquarium and underwater tunnel to discover giant sharks, stingrays and turtles and hundreds of shimmering temperate fish.
The stunning white sandy beaches of our metropolitan coast flow underwater into a shallow sandy seafloor dotted with seagrass beds, islands and reefs. Formed during the last ice age these reefs have been worn by water and waves to create a marine matrix of caves, crevices and swim throughs.
The coastal landscapes of the Far North Coast are as ancient as the Earth itself and range from the muddy mangrove flats of Kununurra, to the white beaches of the Rowley Shoals.
Marmion Marine Park
Discover WA's first marine park, known for its intricate system of limestone reefs, shoreline rockpools and sandy islands. Also home to large ocean cruisers, like Australian Sea Lions, Bottle-nose Dolphins and Humpback Whales, this sanctuary sits just beyond AQWA's walls and is a popular location for tourists and residents alike to explore the vast local marine life.
Face a deadly lineup of marine creatures that can sting, bite or wrap their prey with suckered arms 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.
