The Building

The Ultimate Underwater Experience!
Stroll around the different continents of the world and view sea creatures, reptiles, exotic fish, native birds and interactive displays that will transport you to another world without getting wet.
The ground floor of the complex is dedicated to the New Zealand environment. The main tank is 24 metres long, 30 metres wide, 3 metres deep and takes 1,500,067 litres of water to fill. View the 1,500 fish swimming and feeding above you as you stroll through the 50 metre long tunnel.
Interact with our touch pool and view the rock pool and the kiwi environment as well as seeing our very own lizard, the gecko. Take a look at the tuatara exhibit with its stepped/shelved coastal wave and wind cut rockwork.
On the upper floor you can view the different continents of the world. Immerse yourself in Africa and our Lake Malawi cichlid exhibit. Relax by the Japanese Garden with its cave fish display. Exit from the Asian Water Garden containing Koi carp, gold fish and twin-hinged tortoises into the harsh outback life of Australia with its skink display.
