Rainbow Reef beautifully recreates the warm and inviting coral seas of the Indo-Pacific Ocean. Here you can enjoy the kaleidoscope of fish that flash around their idyllic home, and learn more about their precious but endangered habitats.

Sometimes called rainforests of the sea, coral reefs are rich in life, with a variety of organisms that is rarely equaled. The structure of a reef lends itself to creating not just one habitat, but thousands of micro-habitats, and often exhibit extraordinary adaptations and specialist lifestyles.



• At over 200,000 litres, Rainbow Reef is home to over 100 species of fish, making it our most bio-diverse exhibit at the aquarium!

• Coral reef conservation is imperative to the survival of all the species that call Rainbow Reef home. Learn about what our staff are doing in the field to conserve and protect coral reefs in the wild by clicking here.
