  • Unbelievable collection of sea life, colours, swimmers and crawlers. Chance to forget the bustle of the heart of Melbourne. Its also in a picturesque location along the Yarra River. Loved it.  more »
  • If you can’t plan your trip to The Great Barrier Reef, visiting Sealife Aquarium is a superb consolation! The visit is worth all of the AUD42 ticket price. There are enough activities for children to ...  more »

  • Friendly staff, clean environment and a variety of fish species. However, I felt it wasn't really worth the price; too expensive for the experience. There wasn't interesting stories about these animals, I think there could be many interesting stories like what these small fish do under big fish? Any social/group behaviour about any fish type? Where they exist in the world? How they are connected to the biodiversity and coral life? I didn't learn anything - you just look at them and pass by them most of the time. I just think it could have been different. Maybe there is no place offering such things but it felt kinda void to me. Besides that, they take a picture of you, and sell the album with 39 dollars which they already made. I didn't accept but what are you gonna do with these albums? Throw it away... Basically not sustainable especially if you are promoting to keep the environment clean.
  • I really loved coming here. The pricing was okay if you got it online. Some amazing sea life to check out, the sting rays and sharks were huge! Had a good level of extra things for the kids and we got to see a few feedings as well. They have a huge crocodile as well which was really special to see.
