Underwater World - Sunshine Coast

Underwater World, Queensland, is the state's largest aquarium and oceanarium – much of it built deep beneath the ground.  It is one of the must-see and experience Sunshine Coast attractions.

Travel down the ramp leading to the 80-metre underwater tunnel. Glide along the moving walkway and reach out to touch sharks and stingrays as they move silently overhead. Or even get right into the action - the Underwater World Shark Dive is a now legendary part of the visitor programme.

The giant oceanarium is a colourful, exciting kaleidoscope of movement and colour as thousands of fish and hundreds of species swarm through the translucent waters. It's as up-close-and-personal as you can get without getting wet.

This Sunshine Coast attraction showcases over 25,000 marine creatures, including the ever-popular dolphins. Relax and enjoy the playful 'Seals Behaving Badly' show and enjoy the mischievous otters as they scamper about the Otter Encounter.

Feeding the stingrays is an experience no one should miss, though being kissed by a seal is not for everyone.

Visit the Underwater World Monsters of the Deep displaying a giant frozen squid and marine creatures that have lived constantly in the dark.

Travel back to the Jurassic Period and experience the world of dinosaurs. More than a sensational sight-and-sound experience, visitors start to understand why the dinosaurs died out when other species survived and what it means to the world today. It is an experience the whole family will love and learn from.

Facilities are available at Underwater World Mooloolaba, to host unusual or themed events, breakfasts and weddings.

Under Water World, Sunshine Coast, is located at The Wharf in central Mooloolaba, Qld, just a little further south from Maroochydore.  There is plenty of parking on site.
