Looking for things to do in Perth? Among the top Perth attractions, is The Aquarium of Western Australia - home to the rich and diverse local marine life. As the ocean’s deadliest creatures like sharks and sea snakes glide past gracefully, you can appreciate the variety of species both big and small that live along Australia’s 12,000 km coastline. Then get a whole different perspective in a glass bottom boat as it skims the surface of the three million litre tank with an amazing view of the large rays, sharks and turtles beneath your feet.
There’s so much more to see with over 40 exhibits on offer, including the breathtaking living coral reef exhibit, one of the largest in the world. The child-friendly Discovery Pool is a crowd favourite and visitors can gently touch their favourite sea creatures like starfish and baby sharks. Always a fun-filled outing for the family.
