Venue Testimonials

We were fortunate enough to experience a work dinner at sea life. The food was nice, the location was convenient and the views were spectacular. The sea life swimming past as we were enjoying our meal was truly mesmerising and such a wonderful experience.

Camper T

Had the luxury of attending a dinner in the Aquarium - the night time view over the river to Crown was fantastic. As aquariums go, this is a good one to visit also from an exhibit point of view.

Max S

We held a dinner event at the Melbourne Aquarium and the food was amazing, really really good.
