Photo Spot Details

This is a great spot for us land lubbers to see the world out in the sea. As i spent my child hood in the tropics with the same fish its a most interesting place brings back a lot of very good memories. In most case this is the only way i can see the fish these days and some of the others we have in WA waters. The main tank is a huge walk in and you are in a glass dome as the fish swim about you. You are not allowed to use a flash this will test you and the camera out big time.

This is a place where a fast lens is of great value and if you shoot in “A , S Or M” in other words you run the camera this is the places that will test you out.  Auto setting just may not work at all i even had to rescure one Nikon shooter  as the camera was not set up correctly at all. I used the 50mm F1.8 and the 16-35mm F4 VR as i was not planning to come here i did not have the monopod but i would recommend it. This is a very busy place on the weekend or school holidays so you will have to be patient or you can choose the midweek option.
