If you like fish and other sea creatures you’ll love Auckland’s Aquarium. There are plenty of interactive things for children to play with, plenty of fish to feed, and the usual expensive gift shop at the end of the walk through. But there are a couple of unique aspects to this aquarium.
The first is the FREE shuttle bus service in the shape of a shark! Yep – a shark. You don’t have to be a kid to want to ride in a shark bus.
Second, there is a lot (and I do mean a lot) of exhibition focus on Antarctica, but one feature that really stood out to me was the giant squid encased in a glass box. Giant squids are very rarely seen, let alone housed in an aquarium! The glass box gives you the chance to walk around the animal and truly appreciate the size of it. I’m not a squid-nerd I swear!
The aquarium is great fun for all kids big and small.
