your experience

With the onset of dusk in Tropical North Queensland, nocturnal fish, insects, amphibians, and reptiles stir to life and make their way out of their daytime lairs. Vibrant hued reef fish look for shelter in coral caves as dangerous night-time sharks, rays and grouper wake up. With the ‘Aquarium by Twilight’ guided tour, you get to see this very remarkable transition from day to sunset. What’s more, you can complete your evening with a lovely dining experience at Dundee’s Restaurant, against a stunning sea life backdrop.
