Aqwa World, The Aquarium of Western Australia (Aqwa) as it is today came about as a result of a diving mishap. The founder of Coral World, Morris Kahn damaged his eardrums while trying to stop his son ascending too quickly. Finding himself unable to dive again he began thinking of all the others who might never get a chance to see life under the ocean and so started the family business of building aquariums around the world (it's an interesting story, the link will fill you in a bit more). Standing on the revolving floor that does a circle around the aquarium with the many species of West Australian sea creatures swimming over and around you is quite an experience. There is nothing quite like seeing a huge white pointer, razor teeth bared swimming so close you could reach out and touch it to confirm to me that my choice of 'landlubber' for life was so the right way to go. If you like a thrill (?) you can even dive with the sharks...........PASS!!
