  • The best aquarium I have ever been too! They have all sea creatures and it is for all ages. My favourite part was the 80m underwater tunnel! I have never seen stingrays from underneath until now. The glowing jelly fish were also super cool and The shows are also super cute. I really recommend you come here if you are in the area no matter what age you are there will be something for you
  • I don't know how this place is rated so high. It used to be called Underwater world and back then it was great because it was for all ages. Now Sea Life appears to be for people 10 and under only. We went in the school holidays and It was way to hot due how many people were and there was no air conditioning. The hallways were so narrow and had to push past people to walk through. I think they legally had too many people in that day as it didn't appear the aquarium could hold that many people. It was hard to see any fish as there were a lot of people standing around them most of the time. I got a headache from how loud it was there as there was way too many kids. There were also no otters like there used to be and the whole thing was a big disappointment. Was not relaxing at all like it used to be. And was super smelly. In the tunnel the fish were also eating plastic which we had to alert staff about. There was also some fish that were injured in the tunnel with bite marks on them. There were also very little amount of sharks like there used to be. The tunnel used to be the best part but now it's gross and not relaxing at all. No music anywhere throughout the whole aquarium either so don't know why other reviews say there is. The floor as well in the tunnel doesn't move like it did many years ago. Total waste of money. Sea life in Melbourne is way better. Photos at the end were very expensive and my eyes were closed in the photo so no way I was buying that.
  • A great family day out. Just remember if the young ones get restless there are multiple play areas near the exit of the aquarium. My son (3 yo) had a ten minute play and then wanted to go back to look at the fish. This "play break" made the visit well worth the money as we spent just over 3 hours in the aquarium.
  • Loved it.... It was great finding our way around to the various exhibits through the labyrinth of passage ways, like making our way through a maze. Awesome seeing the translucent Jellyfish being lit up by a couple of different coloured lights shining through the water they're just absolutely mesmerising to watch.
  • We had sooooo much fun! Definitely not just an experience for children. We loved how easy it was to navigate each sector and the new exhibits were amazing. Well priced and in a great spot. Amazing!
