Cooper and Pepper were a little cautious about poison barbs but these beauties were safe for swimming.
Pepper loved being on the outside of the tank and feeding the rays with her little pole and hook.
Cooper was more adventurous and sat in the tank playing with the rays and loved being with Andrew and the 300kg Ray.
They are such gentle creatures and feel rather like velour as they come up close to you.
Oz ray and shark centre is in Dandenong, VIC.
It is not a cheap day out with our family visit costing $100.
For the same experience though at a big city aquarium it would have been double that price.
It is accessible all around the tanks.( wide pathways and little ramps for wheelchair users) Cooper used his walker and could feed the rays while still standing close to the tank.
To get into the big pools you have to go up 4 steps and then down a few steps.
You use their wetsuits and reef shoes.
2 accessible car spots available and an accessible change room/toilet. There are no showers which is a bit strange but at least you get to take the fishy smell home with you to remember your experience!
While you are in Dandenong head over to Little India for a meal you will not regret it!
