Visit Stanley Seaquarium for some fishy fun! Located on the water’s edge alongside Stanley’s fishing fleet and housed in a shed originally constructed for crayfish processing, Stanley Seaquarium transforms the building into a fascinating discovery of Tasmanian sea-life.
Colourful and vibrant, the emphasis is on fun and facts as you come face to face with resident sea creatures. Did you know that Tasmanian Giant Crabs can grow to a massive 16 kilos? Come and have a closer look! In her cosy house the female octopus awaits the hatching of her eggs while nearby the Leatherjackets seem to want to chat. It’s hands-on in the Rock Pool with Hermit crabs displaying their beautiful shells. From delicate seahorses to sharks and lobsters, maritime history and artefacts, shells and ships, Stanley Seaquarium provides a unique world of delight for all ages.
