Group Bookings

Reef HQ Aquarium is an ideal event location for all types of clubs, schools, kindies, care homes, RSL’s, colleges and universities.

We love to welcome groups into our aquarium and our guides will be more than happy to help you with your visit.

Reef HQ Aquarium has wide aisles, spacious areas and flat access throughout. We have a lift that can easily take you to the first level if required. Secure baggage storage is also available.

There’s plenty of places to sit and just watch the fish and we have a café and gift shop where you can enjoy a variety of refreshments or do a little shopping for yourself or friends and family.

Guided Tours

We offer a complimentary guided tour, with one of our very knowledgeable Reef Education Specialists, for groups over 10 persons. You’ll get an insight into the workings / operation of Reef HQ Aquarium including our premier coral reef exhibit, the world’s largest living coral reef aquarium, plus other exhibits and you’ll receive answers to all the questions you have about our spectacular and truly unique reef.

Reef HQ Aquarium is a great place to bring children’s groups too. It’s completely enclosed and provides safe all weather comfort for maximum enjoyment.

See + Do

So you can maximise your group booking and visit look here to get an idea of the daily events at Reef HQ Aquarium.

We suggest you give yourselves at least 150 minutes (2.5 hours) to see everything properly. This includes the 1.5 hour complimentary tour for groups over 10 persons. Tour duration can be adapted to suit schedules, and can include free time in the Aquarium. As part of your admission fee you can come and go as you please throughout the day. This is ideal if you want to take in other activities and sites around Townsville, but, would still like to experience our ‘Daily Talks & Tours’.
