Oceanworld was built in 1962 as Manly's Aquarium and refurbished in 1988. Oceanworld was the first aquarium in Australia to have a 110m under water glass tunnel through a 4 million litre tank which holds 5,000+ marine species.

  • critically endangered grey nurse shark, wobbegongs, Port Jackson sharks and blind sharks
  • reptiles such as crocodiles, taipans, tiger snakes, brown snakes and various lizards
  • invertebrates such as funnel-web spiders
  • you can prticipate at shows, talks and demonstrations or join a guided tour
  • you can dive in the shark tank

Personal comment: If time or money are an issue, between Sydney Aquarium and Manly Oceanworld I would choose the former.
