We’re excited to announce that we will be open under COVID-19 Level 2! 

As always, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, team members and communities is our top priority.

We want to assure you that we’re taking the necessary precautions and following Ministry of Health guidelines to operate safely. For visitors this includes:

  • QR code scanning and wearing of face masks
  • Visitor numbers will be monitored (please be patient and maintain social distancing if there is a queue)
  • All our public talks are postponed at Alert Level 2 – 10am Pania feed, all Penguin Keeper talks and the 2pm Shark Feeding.  This is due to difficulty maintaining 2m distancing during these events
  • Monitoring physical distancing during our Penguin Keeper talks and Pania Reef feeding
  • Additional sterilising of surfaces, benches and tables
  • Monitoring the use and reducing the number of restrooms open
  • Reducing certain products available in our café and offering table service
  • Cashless payments

All our team are looking forward to welcoming you back to the National Aquarium, however if you are feeling unwell, please hold off your visit until your symptoms clear. We would love to see you, but we must ensure the safety of our community and staff.
