The Aquarium of Western Australia (AQWA)

Last Saturday (21st of January 2012) was a very hot and humid day. The mercury almost hit the 40°C mark. I wasn’t really happy about the prospect of going down to the beach and roast in the sun like a kebap. So, I decided to go with another mate from school, Joel, to a more chilly place. And what would be more suitable as a spot in or, even better, under water like the biggest aquarium in Western Australia (AQWA). Known as the number one attraction in WA you can explore 12’000 km of WA’s coastline in just a few hundred metres.
Therefore I’ve decided to cycle to the aquarium because, as you may already know, Perth’s transportation service is &%*!#+*. Cycling up to the north was a real torture: Despite those insane wrong-way drivers I also had to cope with the heat. After 15 km and 2 litres of water I finally reached AQWA.
An absolute must see, you can explore sharks, stingrays and also very poisonous creatures in the DangerZone.

I will show you some pics here to get a better insight. You can find all the pics in my Picasa Gallery.
