SEA LIFE® Melbourne Aquarium
See thousands of marine animals without leaving the city at the SEA LIFE Melbourne aquarium. Boasting more than 10 themed zones, the aquarium features penguins, sharks, rays, crocodiles, starfish, and much more. The ocean’s diversity and marine conservation efforts are the focus at this popular family attraction.
 
The Basics
SEA LIFE Melbourne sits on the banks of the Yarra River in central Melbourne. See habitats like the Bay of Rays, the Coral Caves, and the Mermaid Garden, and enjoy activities like animal feedings, keeper talks, and tour on a glass-bottom boat. You can also book experiences like a shark dive or a trip behind the scenes of the penguins’ icy habitat.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • SEA LIFE Melbourne has a gift shop and a café that sells lunch items, baked goods, and drinks.
  • Avoid lines by booking tickets online in advance.
  • Visitors can rent lockers to store belongings.
  • The aquarium is fully wheelchair accessible.
  • Wheelchairs and strollers are available for use on a first-come, first-served basis.
 
How to Get There
SEA LIFE Melbourne is located at King and Flinders streets on the north side of the Yarra, across from the Crown entertainment complex. The aquarium does not have its own parking lot, but paid parking is available at nearby public facilities. Public transportation is a more convenient option; there is a tram stop on Flinders Street and two nearby train stations: Flinders and Southern Cross.
 
When to Get There
The aquarium is open daily, from mid-morning to early evening, with slightly longer hours on weekends, holidays, and school vacation periods (April, July, September–October, and December). Exact hours vary by season. 
 
Shark Dive Xtreme
One of SEA LIFE Melbourne’s most exciting experiences is Shark Dive Xtreme, which gives brave souls a chance to swim in the water with some of the aquarium’s resident sharks, such as nurse sharks or blacktip reef sharks, as well as rays and other fish. The 2-hour experience includes scuba diving instruction.
