Shark and Ray Centre, Bobs Farm, Port Stephens, NSW

Clara was a little freaked out by the huge Black Ray

This Black Ray was huge!

Neo was happy to feed and touch from the side.

At the "Kids Day Out" event, I won a prize: Family entry (2 adults and 2 children) into the Shark and Ray Centre in Port Stephens. Port Stephens is a destination I have wanted to visit for some time. Port Stephens is about 2.5 hours north of where we live.
Zoe and I feeding sharks and small rays
When we arrived, we were asked if we wanted to go into the tanks with the sharks and rays - we were told it was the only facility in the world that allows guests to enter the exhibits. Clara, Tristan, Zoe and I each donned wet suits and went in. While Dave and Neo fed them from the edge. Dave took all the photos using his phone.

It was totally awesome experience. The super large black ray rubbed itself against each of us as we stood in the water.

This Eastern Ray has a very rough back. He's hoovering my water shoe....

Tristan loved the Gummy Sharks

Tristan really enjoyed engaging with the Gummy Sharks.

It's an experience we all enjoyed. The children are already asking to go back again some day.
