A staggering 2.5 million litres of water flow through the coral-reef tank here, home to 130 coral and 120 fish species. Kids will love seeing, feeding and touching turtles at the turtle hospital. Talks and tours (included with admission) throughout the day focus on different aspects of the reef and the aquarium.
