Had a great few hours here. Spent an enjoyable, unpressured hour strolling through the aquarium. It was well presented and locally informative. Coffee and cake was enjoyed on the verandah overlooking the waters and township of Merrimbula. can't think of a better place around here.

Way over priced for what it is. $22 to look through the small, outdated aquarium. Then had lunch in the restaurant, was pretty good but $35 for a seafood basket.

On behalf of "Road Runner Tours, Wyong" and all my passengers on the coach, I'de like to thank Alan for all his commentary and the wealth of information about the sea life he shared with us. It really made the visit worthwhile. Most enjoyable experience.
