Photographer's Note

After the house that looks like a bird, here the weird bus that looks like a fish :).

Kelly Tarlton's Sea Life Aquarium is a public aquarium in Auckland. It was the brainchild of New Zealand marine archaeologist and diver Kelly Tarlton (1937–1985). Built in disused sewage storage tanks, the aquarium used a new form of acrylic shaping, which allowed curved tunnels rather than viewing areas with flat panels only.
The aquarium's main features are the Antarctic Encounter and the Underwater World. Visitors can see a recreation of the hut used by Captain Robert Falcon Scott during his South Pole expedition in 1912. The aquarium has a colony of king penguins and gentoo penguins. in their temperature controlled habitat.
To go to the Aquarium, one can use the free shuttle from the centre of Auckland, shark bus. I was fun!
