Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium – An Underwater Adventure for Families
If you are looking for fun activities in Melbourne for kids, you can’t go passed the Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium. Get up close to some of the most magnificent marine animals and explore the Sea Life Museum with the whole family.
Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium
The Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium takes you on an interactive underwater adventure discovering the wonders of the underground world meeting various sea creatures and marine animals, and then into Antarctica with the penguins.
A fun day out in Melbourne for the whole family, the Melbourne Aquarium is a great way to teach kids about all the different marine life.
Explore the Underwater World
Walk through the glass viewing tunnels like you are underwater, and get close to sharks, sting rays, turtles, and a range of other sea animals and marine life. Come face to face with one of Australia’s largest saltwater crocodiles, then enter into the tropical forest where you can gaze at the various snakes, lizards, frogs, and other reptiles.
Take advantage of the daily feeds and talks where you can learn more about these amazing sea animals.
Melbourne Aquarium Events
There are often different events going on at Sea Life, especially during the school holidays, so make sure to check out what is going on before your visit.
From 3 August until 19 September 2019 you can join the LEGO Sea Explorers on a creative mission.
Families will complete an engaging underwater fact finder sheet and will be challenged with creative activities by the LEGO deep sea diver to see if they can colour in a range of exciting underwater scenes and create their favourite sea creatures, including rays, sharks and octopuses, using LEGO bricks.
Melbourne Aquarium Experiences
For those who are looking for a bit more, add one of the Melbourne Aquarium’s unique experiences. Glide along the Glass Bottom Boat, get up close to the Gentoo and Penguins, or for those who are brave enough you can even swim with the sharks which for those who dare, is one of the most amazing experiences you can imagine!
