A museum dedicated to natural history and archaeology, it’s a great place to visit and gives people in insight in to the history of the region and the country. There are lots of exhibits and interactive models for visitors to enjoy, it is located in the same complex as Reef HQ. Worth a visit.
Situated in Townsville and is the largest living coral reef aquarium, the Coral Reef Exhibit has over 130 different coral species and over 100 different fish, many other sea inhabitants that make is a wonderful experience to visit, the environment lends itself perfectly and the way the tanks are set up it feels as if you are immersed in the reef itself. Great fun and a taste of the ocean without getting wet.
