Sydney Aquarium Guide

sydney aquariumThe Sydney Aquarium is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Sydney. It is located in Darling Harbour, just a few minutes from the central business district (CBD) of Sydney.

Visitors are taken through an impressive array of exhibits, from the cute clownfish (remember the movie Finding Nemo?), to the playful seals, and the scary sharks that swim above visitors in the walk-through shark displays.

The Sydney Aquarium was first opened in 1988, making it one of the oldest in the world. It is compared to other great aquariums like those in Osaka, Japan and Monterey, USA.

Even though the experience entertaining and fascinating, the people at the Sydney Aquarium have a strong commitment to conservation and environmental awareness. Throughout the exhibits there is plenty of educational material explaining the problems of pollution and the environmental impact that man is inflicting. Their message of caring for the environment is backed up by the many research, conservation, and training programs that they regularly partake in.

Be prepared to spend at least a couple hours browsing the many aquariums and exhibits. There are an estimated 11,000 animals at the Sydney Aquarium!
