Stanley Seaquarium provides a fascinating sea-life experience at the foot of Stanley’s Nut, north west Tasmania.
At this colourful and vibrant aquarium, the emphasis is on fun and facts as you come up-close with resident sea creatures. Learn how Tasmanian Giant Crabs can grow to an enormous 16 kilograms and get face to face with the six-foot-long Conger Eel, displaying a personality to match! Watch as the female octopus awaits the hatching of her eggs in her cosy house while the Striped Trumpeter seems to want to chat. It’s hands-on in the Rock Pool with hermit crabs displaying their beautiful shells. From delicate seahorses to sharks and lobsters, maritime artefacts, shells and ships Stanley Seaquarium provides a unique world of delight for all ages.
The Seaquarium is designed for wheelchair access and the friendly staff are happy to answer questions about these varied and fascinating creatures. The aquarium caters for school and bus groups and has a 20 per cent discount policy for pre-booked groups of 10 or more people.
Located on the waters’ edge alongside Stanley’s fishing fleet, housed in a shed originally constructed for crayfish processing, Stanley Seaquarium transforms the building into a fascinating discovery of Tasmanian sea-life.
