Being educated about our beautiful reef. It was our second visit in 2 years and we always walk away learning something new about the reef's significance and how to protect it. Thoroughly enjoyed the presentations both visits - it's difficult not to catch the passionate bug for our reef from the presentors .

We bought tickets ahead of time which made our entry very smooth and quick. The exhibits were beautiful and the information given about how water moves through Australia was very interesting! Love the simulated Great Barrier Reef!!
