How would you describe this activity today?

It’s rare to find an attraction that engages both parents and children alike, but SEA LIFE Melbourne is it! I enjoyed exploring this amazing aquarium every bit as much as my kids did.

How excited did you and your family feel about this activity?

It’s hard to contain your excitement when you are greeted at the entrance by friendly staff that enthusiastically describe the sea creatures awaiting you inside!

What was the best part of the event for you and your child? 

So many best parts in our visit to SEA LIFE Melbourne.

Observing the King and Gentoo penguins up close was incredible. We saw penguins incubating eggs. We saw baby penguins. It was an experience we won’t forget.

If you haven’t met Pinjarra the HUGE saltwater crocodile yet, you need to!

The Oceanarium was a mesmerising glimpse at the vast underwater world. Gentle giant stingrays, captivating sharks and striking fish, it was astonishing to consider their enormous size!

The kids were thrilled to explore the many cubbyhole features found throughout the aquarium. Equipped with special viewing windows these cubbies allowed us to get a front row view to sea creatures big and small.

It’s hard to beat identifying and touching a REAL shark egg in the SEA LIFE rockpools!

The new interactive Ocean Invaders zones were another highlight. So many cool facts to learn about the strange yet beautiful jelly fish.

When our legs needed a rest the 4D cinema was perfect. The multi-sensory experience was unlike anything we had ever experienced before and was met with awe and lots of giggles.

To what extent would you agree with the following: This event was awesome?

Our visit was beyond awesome. Words and pictures do not do it justice. This is a truly engaging attraction that you NEED to experience for yourself. SEA LIFE Melbourne is a wonderful adventure for the whole family.
