Visit Northland’s Largest Aquarium

Our 66,000L aquarium is the largest in Northland and it takes pride of place in our aptly named restaurant.
Home to a range of beautiful fishy friends, you can learn about our underwater residents with matching photos and interesting descriptions of each species. With new fish added regularly, each time you visit, you should see something new!
It’s free to come in and visit the aquarium – a must see when in Paihia!
