SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has the world’s largest collection of Australian aquatic life. From sharks and dugongs to stingrays and seahorses, discover 14 themed areas on a journey through SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. You can even snorkel with sharks.

At Darling Harbour, a stroll from Town Hall Station in the city centre, the aquarium has two of only five dugongs on display in the world. You’ll see sting rays in the Tropical Bay of Rays. Enjoy the ocean tunnel walk, Shark Valley and Shark Walk, among some of the themed areas. Marvel at turtles, jellyfish, platypus, penguins and thousands of tropical fish.

Behind-the-scene tours are available, including a glass-bottom boat tour.

The Shark Reef Snorkel tour offers a thrilling underwater experience close to sharks. You’ll be submerged in a see-through enclosure where you can snorkel and watch sharks. The experience is for 1.5 hours and includes a safety briefing, snorkel gear, wetsuit and showers. Novice divers are welcome on the Shark Reef Snorkel.
