Australia’s Top 5 Strangest Attractions | Rockhampton Qld Motel Accommodation

1. Atlantis Marine Park, Perth.

Constructed in 1981, and based in Two Rocks a local fishing community just 60Km to the North of Perth. With Perth rapidly growing the owners thought that Tourism was a great opportunity. Dolphins were caught locally and trained up to perform over the next ten years. Unfortunately the park began to lose money, and with a change in the specifications of marine water tanks the park was closed.
