"The National Aquarium of New Zealand in Napier" New Zealand Things to Do Tip by manil51

New Zealand Things to Do: 1,188 reviews and 1,667 photos

The aquarium, with its unique position on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, has a wider range of species than any other similar facility in New Zealand.
The National Aquarium has a reef tank, a travelator which spirals its way beneath the enormous Oceanarium, creating the impression of a true underwater experience, and a typical New Zealand rocky shore environment. There are sharks, stingray and hundreds of fish species, many of them representative of the catches from along the East Coast. There are eels, trout, sea horse, turtles, octopus, tropical marine fish, kiwi, tuatara, water dragons, native frogs and crocodile also on display.
