Embark on a mesmerizing underwater journey at the Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA), a premier marine attraction nestled in the heart of Hillarys Boat Harbour along the breathtaking Indian Ocean coastline. From its humble beginnings as Underwater World Perth in 1988, AQWA has transformed into a marine wonderland, boasting over 45 exhibits exclusively featuring the unique marine life found in Western Australia. The majority of these species are so rare that they cannot be found anywhere else on the planet.

AQWA, owned and operated by Coral World International, a globally recognized company dedicated to marine education, rehabilitation, and conservation, stands as a testament to their commitment to putting oceans first. The aquarium showcases the diverse marine life spanning over 12,000 kilometers of Western Australia’s coastline, from the icy southern ocean waters to the tropical north. With a focus on wonder, AQWA invites visitors to explore the mysteries of the deep through its flagship attraction, the ‘Shipwreck Coast,’ a colossal aquarium holding a staggering three million liters of flowing seawater.

As you step into the near 100-meter Underwater Tunnel within the ‘Shipwreck Coast,’ you’ll find yourself surrounded by the enchanting marine world. It’s a journey beneath the sea, offering an immersive experience like no other. Coral World’s core values — Put Oceans First; Create Wonder; Be Your Gateway & Foster Joy — come to life at AQWA, where the magic of the ocean unfolds before your eyes.
