Beat the queues and book your Reef HQ Aquarium tickets online!

The Reef HQ Aquarium tickets will give you access to one of the best available exhibits that showcases life on the Great Barrier Reef.  As the world’s only living coral reef aquarium, you’ll be able to see an incredible variety of corals and marine life without putting on a snorkel and mask including:

  • hammerheads
  • rays
  • sharks
  • massive groupers
  • thousands of vibrant fish of all shapes and sizes
  • and more!


There’s a range of talks throughout the day, different viewing areas and even a dedicated reef-themed kids play area. Reef HQ is also dedicated to the conservation and rehabilitation of marine life. You can join a behind-the-scenes tour of the Reef HQ Turtle Hospital, where injured and sick turtles are rehabilitated before being released back into the wild.
