The Sydney Aquarium has a world famous shark display among its attractions that also include seals and penguins, crocodiles, platypus, underwater tunnels and a Great Barrier Reef complex. Travellers arriving in Sydney and heading up the coast will find the display of over 11,000 aquatic animals, open 9am to 10pm every day, a good grounding for what they may see later in the wild.
Tamworth Jackeroo and Jillaroo School - Many people think all Australians live on farms the size of Belgium. They don't, but you can and for around the price of a double room per night.
