Shipwreck Explorer

Journey below the decks of an abandoned sunken shipwreck and encounter some of the ocean’s most venomous animals.

Amongst the rusty portholes and deserted anchors, try and catch a glimpse of the shy Moray eels hiding amongst the wreckage.

Watch out for what lurks around the corners! Shipwreck Explorer is home to Australia’s deadliest marine creatures including the oceans master of disguise – the Stone fish, whose beady eyes keep a close watch for any unsuspecting predators.

Be particularly wary of the flashy fins of the Lionfish as they cruise the waters with confidence armed with venomous spines.

Along your travels, you can retreat on the steps of the Ocean Theatre and watch a presentation about the amazing marine creatures floating by.
