SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

If you haven't been to an aquarium in a while, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium will probably be a pleasant surprise. This place isn't just a few tanks in a blue-painted wall, but is a completely immersive attraction that includes a diversity of sights and experiences.

Upon entering, you're met with a series of rooms that have been designed to reflect the habitats of the fish and other animals on show - such as penguins, platypuses and more. These settings demand your attention, just as much as the fish in some cases.

You don't need to look hard to find many of the animals

Later, long tunnels will take you through large tanks, where you'll find sharks, rays and more. There's also two dugongs, the only ones on display in the country.

It's feeding time


The Great Barrier Reef is another big aquarium - near the end of the route, and it's full of colourful fish. They're so mesmerising that this tank is part of the Reef Theatre attraction, which is just like it sounds; here you just sit back and watch beauty happen. For an additional cost, you can also see it all from above in a glass bottom boat and feed the fish.

Other experiences at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium include talks and feedings, as well as behind-the scenes tours. At 11am each day, you'll also have the chance to feed the sharks. This experience has a very limited capacity, and unfortunately can't be booked online, so you'll have to make some enquiries upon arrival.

I enjoyed true Sea Life article, but I think itís way to expensive for seniors. Itís the same price as the Sydney (NSW) Zoo!
