Save your money on babysitters these school holidays and give your child the opportunity to experience the excitement of sleeping under the sea with AQWA Shark Sleepovers at The Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA). Children aged between 7 – 12 years old will have the unique opportunity to “camp” in Australia’s largest single aquarium and explore AQWA’s exhibits by night during Western Australia’s school holidays from September 23 till October 8, 2017.

After everyone has gone home and the aquarium has closed its doors, AQWA's qualified guides will entertain kids with a night of exclusive tours, marine themed activities designed to educate and enthral, and host a unique underwater sleepover surrounded by sharks, stingrays and hundreds of colourful fish.

Starting at 6pm with pick up at 8am next day, parents can leave their child overnight with AQWA's trusted guides and let them explore one of the largest living coral reef displays in the world and interact with living sea creatures.

Tickets are $125.00per child - cheaper and a lot more fun than any babysitter - this package includes:
