SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

Located in the heart of Darling Harbour, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is an underwater journey of amazing discovery with 12 extraordinary themed zones. Meander through the Jurassic Seas, Great Barrier Reef, Bay of Rays and Dugong Island (just to name a few), then, immerse yourself in the underwater world of Shark Valley, the majestic ocean tunnel walk-through.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is one of the world's largest aquariums - with over 700 different species and 13,000 animals in an impressive six million litres of water. SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is also home to the world's largest variety of sharks and rays, as well as Australia's most famed marine animals, including dugongs and tropical reef fish.

This summer, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is set to become home to the world's first-of-its kind penguin exhibit, Penguin Expedition. Inspired by Macquarie Island, this sensory experience will allow guests to get up close and personal to a spectacular colony of King and Gentoo Penguins. Opening November 2016, Penguin Expedition will transport you on a raft through a sub-Antarctic journey like no other amidst flurries of snow, whistling winds and stunning Southern Lights.
