Man, I don’t want to sound like a broken record here, but I really enjoyed my trip to the Sydney Aquarium on the weekend. I already shared some of my favourite photos from my visit, but my absolute favourite part of the whole aquarium would have to be the Great Barrier Reef section. It was amazing to see so many different types of corals and fish. It’s almost surreal.
Super Boy noticed that these black and white fish were always in pairs, which was cute. We also spotted a tiny baby fish in the back that had me squealing with joy. They also stayed nice and still for their photos.
I loved this section of the aquarium so much. Sadly, I learned that in the last 10 years (I think), the Great Barrier Reef itself has lost approximately half of its coral. Half! Climate change, pollution and dredging have all had an awful impact on one of the seven wonders of the natural world. Coral isn’t important just for the survival of sea life, but it also produces oxygen.
I was so knackered after going through Sydney Aquarium, but it was so much fun! I highly recommend a visit if you’re interested. As I said before, you can buy tickets online and save some money depending on the season. After our long walk through, Super Boy and I headed off in search for lunch around Darling Harbour. No seafood though.
