Staff were rude and had little tolerance for children who were playing with the activities left out for children! This could have been a great experience however I left feeling it was not child friendly! Wouldn't bother going again.

If you are sick of the prices at AQWA consider taking your kids to the Naturaliste Marine Discovery Centre at the northern end of the northern carpark at Hillarys marina. Only $15 for a family ticket and there are lots of things for children to...More
