The National Zoo and Aquarium (NZA) first opened in 1990 as the National Aquarium. The Aquarium consisted of approximately 30 different species, a large restaurant and function area, with its main feature being a large 1.5 million litre aquarium with an underwater viewing tunnel. This was reportedly the first of its type in the world and was manufactured by a local Canberra company. The Aquarium was situated on around 7 hectares of land which also incorporated a series of outdoor ponds and streams for trout farming.

Housing a zoo, aquarium and lodging, we especially enjoyed seeing rare species in the new open-range expansion. All exhibits including the aquarium are accessible via ramps, and although some paths are sloped, there is a well-marked accessible circuit around the zoo. Wheelchairs and motorised scooters are available for hire also.
