Why you'll love AQWA

  • You can enjoy the spectacular marine life as you go on an underwater journey.
  • Offering a range of unique event spaces for large to small corporate and social events.

The AQWA (Aquarium of Western Australia) is an aquatic wonderland that will transform any event into an underwater dream come true! Get up close and personal with Western Australia's spectacular marine life on an underwater journey as you go from the icy waters of the Southern Ocean all the way to the tropical wonderland of corals and marine life in the Far North.

AQWA Perth is a privately owned company committed to inspiring awe and respect for the unique marine life of Western Australia. When it opened in 1988, it was Australia's largest aquarium.

The Aquarium of Western Australia is divided into five distinct areas, each with its own theme to explore. The Shipwreck Coast is a walk-through aquarium with giant sharks, octopuses, stingrays and other amazing creatures. It incorporates the largest acrylic underwater walk-through tunnel in Australia. The jewel in this aquarium's crown is the Coral Reef — one of the largest living coral reef exhibits in the world.

Situated in the heart of Hillarys Boat Harbour, AQWA Australia is a unique setting for all types of social and business events. There are plenty of venue options for a unique AQWA wedding or corporate function, all of which boast stunning views of the harbour and the Indian Ocean or of the colourful world of sea creatures and coral reefs. Whether you're hosting an intimate dinner or a lavish AQWA birthday party, the events team will work with you to turn any of the various AQWA function spaces into your dream event setting. All AQWA functions are held in the two indoor AQWA functions spaces, underwater tunnel and AQWA conference centre. Each of these venues features gorgeous Indian Ocean sunsets or the underwater world of fascinating marine life as the backdrop. Choose from different AQWA wedding packages or events packages that will suit your budget and event requirements.
