What You Can Expect

Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary Entrance Ticket

Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Make your own way to Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary with your admission ticket for easy entrance to this popular attraction.

Take time to explore Shark Harbour, the main aquarium on the lower level. Walk through the center of an aquarium in a 361-foot (110-meter) acrylic tunnel to view sharks and stingrays up close as they swim around you, an unforgettable experience that captivates both kids and adults. The grey nurse sharks Murdoch and Freckles live here, along with several other grey nurse sharks and green sea turtles that you can observe up close, just like a scuba diver.

At Penguin Cove, you can learn about the resident population of little penguins and their distinctive personalities, as well as hear details about Manly's protected wild little penguin colony, which consists of about 60 breeding pairs of birds. Enjoy an interactive look at the critters that live in Sydney Harbour at the Underwater Sydney exhibit's rock pools.

Noted for its little penguin and shark exhibits, the Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary also focuses on the conservation of local animals with its breeding, rescue and protection programs.

Great experience. But please be aware that you are not visit an Aquarium, this is a Sanctuary for Sea life. It's more about education than sea life seeing.

The Sanctuary is a bit small compared to other commercial Aquarium, but the staff is very friendly and very knowledgeable, don't miss their guided tour. The tunnel is great.

We are pretty shocked after this tour about how brutal human can be to all the life in the sea and how much damage we have done to this mother earth. It's even greater if you can bring your kids here.

It's cheaper to book via Viator than buying directly at the reception.

Great value and details on voucher were clear.
Aquarium was great although hard to get around as there is no lifts or ramps and strollers left on middle level which made it harder to get around

3 star rating: Worth doing March 2011

In comparison to the aquarium in Sydney, this one is really small, However, the tunnel was much better than the aquarium in darling harbour! Plus the snorkeling section is amazing! Friendly educated staff!
