Or you can walk through the water in waterproof waders or a wetsuit with the aquarium packed with over 150 different sharks and rays.

Feel the adrenalin course through you as a 300kg, 2m wide stingray comes and gives you a cuddle.

The Australian Shark and Ray Centre is all about hands on experiences, and its available rain, hail or shine, year round for everyone from 0 years old.

Please note: There is no observer price.



An essential and exciting experience awaits everybody! Children of any age can join in and feed, pat and play with some of the most awesome creatures in the world. Just standing in waist deep water or less, and hand feeding rays is something no-one ever forgets.

Starting off in the shallow area with the friendliest of rays, the fiddlers, you will overcome any doubts straight away with these great critters. Moving onto and upward in depth (our deepest pool is only up to your waist) feeding sharks and rays as you go, the critters get bigger, but no less friendly. Eventually be cuddled (its true!!) by a 2m wide, 3m long 300 kilogram ray………Truly Awesome!!

Stay dry in the waterproof pants, or warm in our heated pools in wetsuits, this is a must do for everyone in the family.
