    Meh, too many children roaming and yelling in every direction, noisy, hard to appreciate the wonders on display

    Octonauts are in for the school holiday! Entrance is a bit pricey but forgivable. Photo souvenir's way overpriced. Staff are not as accomodating. Discounted parking @ 474 flinders St. Dont park at L6.

    Such a great day. Our 1year old LOVES the big event room, free to crawl and giggle. The staff were so friendly too. All round a great experience at a fair price.
