Sea Life Sydney Aquarium Reviews

Excellent excellent excellent. I suggest not getting caught up with the rest of the crowd and pretend that there is no one else around. more »
The aquarium was great, the kids loved it. The free penguin boat ride was worth the 10 minute wait. Cafe had a good choice of food and ice-cream and you can also sit to eat your own packed lunch. The only downside was that it was a really hot day and the aquarium was uncomfortably hot inside which made us rush through some parts to find a cooler spot.
It's a good place to go for half a day. Nice variety of animals and exhibitions to enjoy and learn from. The staff are knowledgeable and approachable. It's a bit expensive at the gate so make sure you buy group tickets if you're going with your family
