  • Average attraction, nice displays but very cramped. Queuing for tickets was a nightmare with many staff allowing cutting in and one person serving the main queue with 5 serving the smaller queues...  more »
  • This was by far the worst attraction I have ever been to in my life. It is not an aquarium, it is a tourist trap. There were more empty hallways than fishtanks. The whole place was sooo incredibly...  more »

  • SEA Life Aquarium is cute and perfect for the family. I've taken both my 11 month old nieces here and they enjoyed it. As much as an 11 month year old can. Haha The staff are really nice, it takes about 45 minutes to 1 hour to walk around the entire centre. It's nice and cool inside so if it's a hot or rainy day it's a perfect indoor activity. There are some really cool interactive parts if you have children. The exhibits are nice and they have a great range of animals there. They have a really cool water tunnel to walk under. They have sharks, jellyfish exhibit, penguins, and other really cool see creatures. You can even swim with sharks! They have a cute gift shop, they validate parking and they will take your photo in the beginning if you want to purchase it in the end. They don't have direct parking but you can park in a nearby parking garage.You can also buy a bundle package if you want to do the Wild Life or Wax museum exhibits.
  • The SEA LIFE Sydney aquarium provides a unique glimpse into the aquatic and marine life surrounding the island nation of Australia. There are large displays featuring sharks and manta rays floating around us, which I found awe-inspiring. I was equally delighted to spot some well known fish species such as the blue tang famous from Finding Dory. The long queue for the penguin ride is worth the wait. I definitely recommend a visit to experience the marine life of Australia.
