SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium Reviews
I attended the NYE 18+ event with my partner and it was a disaster. We paid $200 a person and it was absolutely not worth the money. We had to wait in line for 45 minutes just to get into the venue... more »
I must say, we were very disappointed with the New Year’s Eve event at the Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium. $79 per adult and less for children. Once we entered the function room, it was a dogs... more »
It's a bit smaller than I expected and they were doing some renovations on one of the floors but it was still a lot of fun. I think maybe it'd be better if the penguins had more room to swim. The crocodile was impressive, and he's a rescue so that was nice. This aquarium also rehabilitates sea turtles, which is lovely. The rays are stunning. Really beautiful shark exhibit and reef exhibit too. Great for children and the curious-minded. I really enjoyed it.
Penguins, crocodile, sea turtles, seahorse, sharks, shrimps, wide ranging fishes and more. Great place for kids to run around and knowing it's okay to touch around. Purchase tickets online at least a couple days prior will save you up to 20% of $42 per adult entry, kids under 2 are free, over 3 are charged at adult price. Photos are taken at the door which can be purchased near where the penguins are. Buy one set of 6 photos with introductory booklet and stickers for $39. They do one for family and one for kids only. If purchase both $59, of you want to merge family and kids photos for one booklet it is $49. If you plan well you can hear all the guided sessions free of charge then it'll be 2-3 hours to spend here. Otherwise it should still be a good 1hr. Slightly pricy for the size of this aquarium and variety of sea creatures, but I guess it is fair since most sea creatures are rescued instead of fished. We went during a weeks day so it wasn't crowded at all. We had a great time, but it was really hard to decide if it's worth going reading all the extreme reviews. My recommendation would be learn their story session schedule beforehand if you want to make the most out of it.
