They’ve got heaps of exhibits with different species of animal from the underwater world. I think we spent a good 2-3 hours there.
A picture speaks more than a thousand words, so I’m going to stop blabbing & start posting some photos.

The majestic King penguins
The cheeky Gentoo penguins
We were there during the penguin feeding session and it was hillarious to see them all diving in for a bite when the keeper threw the fish into the water. And the gentoo penguins do live up to their reputation of being 'cheeky'. I tried taking a few shots of them swimming in the water (that was on the other side of the exhibit) but unfortunately our ancient camera didn't quite capture the moment. In fact, I couldn't take many photos inside the aquarium as the lighting wasn't adequate and the thick glass in the exhibits made it harder to use flash and these were the only ones I managed to capture.
