ENTRY TO THE AQUARIUM BEFORE OR AFTER YOUR SESSION
Students will experience all of the exhibits in the aquarium during the allocated 2 hour session. School groups are not permitted to enter the Aquarium before or after their session as those times are allocated to other school groups. Please note that this includes access to facilities such as toilets.
We do not have storage available for Self Guided groups. Students need to carry their bags with them throughout the day.
All groups will have access to toilets at the start and end of their session. Access to toilets outside of a group's two hour time slot is unavailable.
FOOD & WATER
Due to health and safety regulations, we do not allow excursion groups to eat or drink within the building. We do not presently have water bubblers available for students to use. Students may bring water bottles if required.
We recommend visiting one of our neighbouring parks to snack before the commencement of the tour and to eat lunch after. As there are no suitable spaces on-site for groups to eat or wait pre or post their excursion, it is advised visiting schools ensure to plan alternative arrangements in the case of extreme weather conditions.
In addition, students are not permitted to make any purchases from our café. For older students, there are a range of food options off-site in the area
All self guided school groups will exit the building via the gift shop. If students are shopping please limit the group to a maximum of 10 students at a time, fully supervised.
