#2 of 10 in Parks in Manly
Learn about Australia's creatures of the deep at Manly Sea Life Sanctuary and how the center promotes conservation of marine life through rescue, breeding, and protecting. Observe a colony of penguins at Penguin Cove; watch sharks, rays, turtles, and tropical fish at Shark Harbour; and view seahorses, octopus, and lionfish at Underwater Sydney. The sanctuary puts on daily presentations about its conservation efforts and even gives you the opportunity to scuba dive with sharks. Children tend to enjoy the touch-pool, where they can pick up starfish and sea slugs.

  • Sadly no longer there but it was great when it was. Small as an aquarium but still great as a day out.  more »
  • Sanctuary has been permanently closed. We sure enjoyed it when we visited back in 2016, sad to not get to see the Little Penguin enclosure, that was worth the price of admission.  more »
