It’s Local’s Month at Irukandji!

It’s been a wonderful couple of months here at Irukandji Shark & Ray Encounters. We’ve had lots of visitors through our doors since opening in July and we love seeing all those smiling, happy faces.
August is locals month at Irukandji and it’s been great to see so many Port Stephens residents come in and check out the new venue. Those who had been to the old site at Bobs Farm were really impressed with the new aquarium and we’ve had lots of words of encouragement for all the hard work we’ve done.
We still have plans to keep going and create a bigger venue in the future so we appreciate all your support to help make that happen!

One of our local visitors took some amazing shots of our beautiful rays while she was here.
Thanks Jen from Boatharbour for these lovely photos of our stingrays!
We encourage you to follow us on Instagram and Facebook if you want to see more of our fascinating animals.
