SEA LIFE® Sydney Aquarium Tours

star-4.5
205 Reviews
SEA LIFE® Sydney Aquarium
The SEA LIFE® Sydney Aquarium encapsulates the diversity of Australia’s aquatic life. Wander exhibits that showcase everything from saltwater crocs and Southern Ocean penguins to turtles from the Great Barrier Reef and jellyfish. Plus, its prime Darling Harbour location lets you combine the aquarium with other family-friendly stops.

The Basics 
Book skip-the-line admission tickets in advance to have more time for exploring. Once inside, discover what day (and night) looks like on the reef at the aquarium's interactive reef exhibit, get up close to king and Gentoo penguins, see a variety of sharks, and meet a dugong. Book combination tickets to the aquarium, along with Madame Tussauds Sydney and the Sydney Eye. Hop-on hop-off bus and harbor cruises stop at Darling Harbour. 

Things to Know Before You Go 
  • SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is a must for nature lovers and families. 
  • The aquarium offers a daily program of events that allows you to observe feeding and listen to educational talks; check the website for exact times. 
  • The aquarium is mostly accessible for strollers and wheelchair users, though some visitors may require assistance down some of the steeper ramps. 
  • Students and disabled visitors receive discounted admission. 
How to Get There
Reaching Darling Harbour from almost anywhere in central Sydney is easy. Walk along Market Street from the central business district or jump on a ferry from Circular Quay. Alternatively, take the Monorail to Darling Park Station or disembark the train at Town Hall Station, both of which are within walking distance of Darling Harbour. 

When to Get There 
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is open from Monday through Sunday, morning until evening, with last entry an hour before close. To beat the crowds, visit outside of Australian school holidays and summer months, and book tickets ahead of time.

Delights of Darling Harbour 
At Darling Harbour, the fun is not confined to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. You can watch an immersive film on one of the largest IMAX screens in the world; observe wildlife from around the globe at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo; and wander around the calming Chinese Garden of Friendship. Plus, cruises of Sydney Harbour regularly depart from Darling Harbour.
