  • We enjoyed our visit to Sea Life. Definitely changed a lot in the 23 years since we were there last. Very hot inside though. Thought there could’ve been a bit more air conditioning. The seal show was ...  more »

  • Great place for families and kids. You can learn lots of interesting things about the life in oceans. You can also see a lot of different animals or can dive with sharks. Nice for a day trip. There is a bus stop. If you are coming for Brisbane I would recommend to take the car. It takes ages to get there by train and bus.
  • A great place to bring the kids. Families young and old will have a blast not only seeing sea life up close and personal, but learning about how our actions affect our underwater friends and what we can do to make a change to better our environment. We were lucky enough to go when the Finding Dory experience was on and the kids loved seeing the real life versions of their favourite characters and learning about their habitat. Overall the venue is reasonably priced but doesn't offer much in the way of food, so definitely pack a lunch or wander outside to the wharf for lunch.
  • Small aquarium, however quite nice range. Needs air conditioning and/or more fans as in summer it can be very hot. Seal show was great. Seal swim was lovely. More time in the water would be ideal. Overall a very nice experience.
  • Wow what great value! Excellent aquarium, helpful friendly staff, not too tough on the hip pocket, a terrific day out. My 18 month old grandson thought he was in heaven. Loads of interactive displays. Very visitor friendly.
  • Good reasonably priced day out but the cafe is a complete dud except on school holidays nothing but sandwiches and reheated pies at a ridiculous price. Was not impressed last time we went for my sons birthday and spent a fortune on cold half stale sandwiches and a warmish pie... other than that the day was fantastic. We have been twice this year and enjoyed itbas much as the kids. The seals were fantastic as usual and we had plenty of photo opportunities for photos.
