Sydney Aquarium, Darling Harbour, takes you on a tour of the seas and oceans surrounding Australia's vast coastline and the rivers, waterways, estuaries and swamps of our large and diverse yet dry land mass.
Murray Cod, Sydney Aquarium
Situated in Darling Harbour the aquarium houses over 11,000 animals from over 630 species of Australian fish, reptiles and mammals that have an affinity with water.
Joined by near to 60 metres of underwater tunnels, the Sydney Aquarium presents the animals according to the regions in which they can be found in the waters around and within Australia: Southern Rivers; Northern Rivers; Southern Ocean; Northern Ocean.
Six million litres of water house this varied and colourful exhibit. See these animals up close, as they swim about in their "near to natural" environments and observe them as they look back at you and as you wonder about them, they're probably doing the same of you. Captain Nero has nothing on this!
And you can't leave Sydney without first visiting the Taronga Zoo, one of the most picturesque zoos in the world.
