Reef HQ Aquarium
Reef HQ Aquarium Review
Reef HQ Aquarium, on the waterfront, a few minutes' walk from the city center, casino, and ferry terminal, houses the world's largest live coral-reef aquarium, containing around 100 species of hard coral, 30 soft corals, and hundreds of fish, sea star, urchin and sponge species: open to the elements, it's a living slice of the Great Barrier Reef (the behind-scenes tour is fascinating). There's a 20-meter (65-foot) Perspex underwater walkway, a predator tank teeming with sharks, rays, turtles, and large pelagic fish, several daily talks, dives, shark feeds (at 2.30pm on Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday), and tours, and a theater, café and shop.
