Departure Point

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, Aquarium Pier Darling Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 Australia
Make your own way to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and embark on a discovery journey within the themed exhibit zones.

Get face-to-fin with over 13,000 animals from 700 different species. Explore the South Coast Shipwreck, Sydney Harbour, Dugong Island, Shark Valley and the Great Barrier Reef exhibit to find an enormous variety of life in this habitat. Watch clown fish darting through the waving tentacles of an anemone while vibrantly colored tangs and angelfish glide around the tank. An enormous, bright blue hump-headed wrasse may stop to check out its visitors while sleek tropical sharks and giant rays seem to move in time with the music.

Face some of the most legendary denizens of the deep at the Shark Walk, a glass walkway that runs above a shoal with more than 40 sharks swimming below, including grey nurse sharks, lemon sharks and sandbar whaler sharks.

Experience the world's first ride-through experience. Hop on a raft at the Penguin Expedition zone where you will be taken on a sensory journey through a sub-Antarctic cool temperature at 43 degrees fahrenheit (6 degrees celsius) with flurries of snow, whistling winds and Southern lights to see the spectacular colony of King Gentoo penguins.

Create your own fish art at the Art Aquarium where you can scan and watch your fish swim in a digital tank spanning over 32 feet (10 meters) long. Make sure you also join the daily educational interactive talks.

Please note: Due to the needs of the animals, all live feeding times are subject to change or cancellation, without prior notice.

It was wonderful experience for all of us. I would like to go again in a bit less busy period as we weren’t able to have a penguin look through the boat ride. It was 30 minutes waiting for 2 minutes ride and children were panic as well.

Sea Life & Wild Life combination ticket review
mahaz487
, Jan 2020
Bought the combination ticket for two attractions. It was not clear from their booking page that one of the attractions need to be done on the selected date (we thought it was an open ticket for both attractions). Booking aside, both the aquarium and the zoo had some positive aspects, but also things to consider. The aquarium had a good variety of sea creatures. The highlights were the penguins, the sharks, touching starfish and sea cucumbers and seeing the dugong. Unfortunately, the experience was marred by overly echoed hallways with sound effects and music so loud we could hardly hear each other speak. The toilettes visited half way through needed attention (overfilled bins, dirty floor and seat).The overall experience took about an hour with an unavoidable 15 minutes spent at the gift shop (which forces all outgoing traffic through it, hence those with kids end up stuck there for a while). The staff were nice. However, the aquarium puts patrons on the spot to have their photo taken upon entering making it difficult for some to decline (we kindly declined as we were already expecting this after navigating their website the day before). Paid prints are put on display at the exit. The zoo should really be advertised as a mini-indoors zoo. The variety for such a small space is good with encounters with the emus, koalas and a huge salt-water crocodile. The experience took 30 minutes including stopping to feed the emus. Overall the combination ticket increases the value of visiting these attractions, but we still found it overpriced. If you happen to be within walking distance from the area and have spare cash and time then it is worth the visit for kids perhaps. Otherwise, it is hard to justify the visit, particularly when considering the added cost of commuting and/or parking.

Good place for kids but bad service

It is a good place for children and adults both. Lovely variety and well maintained. I purchased the photos after the tour. I bought the online version. Soon after I paid I could see them and download them. I did download 1 picture. I was traveling so I tried downloading the others after a bit, but to my dismay the site doesn't load. For the next 48 hours it gave the same error msg. Very disappointing.

I'm 78 and my wife much younger Loved it. Although there was a lot of walking and many different levels, all ramps no stairs, it still was worth it.
