Really cool place that has a cool collection of all sorts of things you can see and read about the items on some. Our fav to see was the puffer fishes and the sea cucumber, the sea horses a close third fav, they are really tiny as babies so that was interesting to see. The owner was welcoming and informative.

Adventure to be had 07 April 2024

4 fish tanks and a extensive wall of shells and skeletons. Staff were informative and happy to answer any questions from the kids and adults. There is a corner to read books all things ocean and digital microscopes. Pricey entrance but worth a once off look.

You won’t believe what this place is until you enter, a magical experience for young and old. The care that the people have for their clients, and more importantly the little creatures they have is inspiring. Was not on our itinerary but would make this the best experience we had on our trip to Busselton.

Too pricey for entry at $16 for a child and $18 for an adult. Was highly interested after reading the reviews on Google, but was not expecting it to be a personal collection of shells and a few fish tanks. The lady was really nice, taking her time to talk to us as we were the only ones there. She was very well informed and friendly. She did a feed to show us Karen the puffer fish and explained to my child information in simple language.
