School Holidays are in Full Swing!

Melbourne Aquarium has you covered for the final weekend of the school holidays!

Wondering how to keep the kids entertained for the final weekend of the school holidays? Never fear! Melbourne Aquarium has plenty of underwater fun in store for the whole family to enjoy!

 

The NEW Rainforest Adventure exhibit is in full swing and has been making quite a splash! The aquarium’s newest residents including creepy crawlies, hermit crabs, blue tongue lizards and lungfish are thriving in their new home and loving all the attention!

 

With no warm weather in sight for the weekend, Rainforest Adventure is the perfect escape, bringing the lush, humid and balmy temperatures of the tropical northern rainforests right to our doorstep!

 

Did you know?

The Archerfish is named after its ability to shoot down resting insects with a spitting jet of water? These crafty capturers can spit accurately to a distance of about 1.15 metres! Now that’s some sharp shooting!

 

Sounds a bit fishy?

Don’t’ miss the special target practice presentations from our talented education team demonstrating how the Archerfish aim!

 

Sound the Octo-Alert!

The Octonauts continue on their amazing marine adventure as they explore, rescue and protect Melbourne Aquarium’s underwater world. Kids can discover heaps of fun fishy facts while exploring the aquarium, chill out in the movie room or get creative at the colouring-in station.
