Opening Times


Reef HQ Aquarium is temporarily closed to support the Government's containment efforts of COVID-19. While you are unable to visit now, we are committed to keeping you connected to the Great Barrier Reef and Reef HQ through digital content. More information on our Facebook LIVE schedule can be viewing by clicking here.


When we reopen, Reef HQ Aquarium is open from 9:30am until 5:00pm every day except Christmas Day, Anzac Day and the Australia Day public holiday.

We recommend a minimum of 2 to 2½ hours (120 to 150 minutes) for you to experience the beauty and wonders of the Great Barrier Reef.

Reef HQ Aquarium provides visitors in wheelchairs full access to all exhibits.
