Colourful Creatures

13 Jun 2019 11:19:02

Celebrate the most Colourful Creatures these July School Holidays!

These July school holidays dive into a world of colour and get ready to create your own underwater adventure story book! 

Have you ever noticed the unique and vibrant patterns and colours of our marine sea creatures? Wondered why a weedy seadragon is so brightly coloured? Or why a penguin's tummy is white? Find out all this and more!

Venture through SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, and create your own adventure storybook based on your encounters and experiences through the attraction, plus learn about the colourful creatures which call Darling Harbour home! Weave your own tale as you encounter the creatures at SEA LIFE Sydney, try and count our sub-Antarctic penguins, draw your own ‘Dory’ blue tang, touch a sea star in the Rockpool and learn how many spikes a lion fish has in our new Day and Night on the Reef zone! 

Bring your story book to life as you recount the sights, smells, textures and emotions, making for the ultimate take home souvenir to always remember your ultimate day out!


SEA LIFE Sydney's Colourful Creatures activities will be running from Saturday 29th June to Wednesday 31st July
SEA LIFE Sydney is open everyday 10 am - 6 pm (last entry 5 pm).

How Much? 

It's FREE! All Colourful Creatures activities are included in the your admission ticket!
