Sea Life Sydney Wins Gold For Best Exhibit


We are honoured and very excited to announce that SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has been honoured with a gold award for its Penguin Expedition at the Australasian Zoo and Aquarium (ZAA) Conference this week.

The award night provides a chance for the Zoo and Aquarium Association to recognise progress, dedication and to celebrate industry excellence across Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea and South Pacific Islands.

"We are truly honoured to have received the title for best large-scale exhibit for our Penguin Expedition,” General Manager, Richard Dilly said on hearing the news.

Penguin Expedition is a state-of-the-art $9 million exhibit unlike anything else in the world and we are proud that we’ve now been recognised by leaders in the industry for our commitment to delivery memorable experiences.

Be sure to watch this space for the launch of more exciting and innovative experiences coming soon!
