What You Can Expect

Skip the Line: SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Entrance Ticket

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

Make your own way to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and pass by the long general admission lines with your skip-the-line ticket. Inside, you have an abundance of fascinating exhibits to explore.

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.

At the Great Barrier Reef exhibit, discover the 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 humpheaded wrasse may stop to check out its visitors while sleek tropical sharks and giant rays seem to move in time with the music.

Discover more about the incredible aquatic life at this aquarium at one of the informative scheduled talks or feedings, which highlight animals such as the dugong, platypus and little penguins. With more than 70 exhibits and 700 species, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has something for everyone.

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

Located next door to the Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney is home to a huge variety of Australian flora and fauna. Meet a koala, watch animal feedings and talks by the keepers, and marvel at one of the largest crocodiles in captivity in the world.

Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary:
Walk through a giant tank inside a 361-foot (110-meter) long acrylic tunnel with sharks and stingrays swimming around the tunnel's exterior. See a vast array of marine life and meet some of Australia's deadliest animals.

Sydney Tower Eye:
Take the high-speed elevator up to the Sydney Tower Eye Observation Deck, located at a height of 820 feet (250 meters) above street level.
