The Shark, Ray & All Creatures Rescue Centre in Port Stephens

Rescuing - it makes a difference and there’s more to do at the Rescue!

Welcome to one of Port Stephens’ highest rated attractions on Google. Our unique indoor rescue centre is open from 10am to 4pm every day. There’s something for all the family, from feeding our sharks and rays and even getting in the water with them, to having close up encounters with our snakes, lizards, birds, eels and even octopus! Combine this with our latest addition, Tinny’s Butterfly House and Underwater Cafe and you won’t be disappointed. 

Enjoy a lunch experience like no other with a complete aquarium experience. Watch sharks, rays and fish swim overhead whilst watching nemo, seahorses and marine fish in front of you. And that’s not all. If you love butterflies, then you will be captivated by our beautiful butterflies fluttering around in our butterfly house – you may be lucky to have one land on you!

Feed Sharks, Rays, Eels even Octopus

Nearly 100 sharks and rays are at home at the rescue centre.

Plus check out our new rescues with birds (including the beautiful macaws and alexandrines) snakes and lizards.

You are never too young...
