Sydney Aquarium Refurb

We're excited to announce we're undertaking a $10 million refurbishment plan for Sydney's number one attraction!


The major overhaul is the first since Sydney Aquarium opened in 1988 and will take the world-class aquarium to a whole new level.


In addition to an amazing new look, Sydney Aquarium will soon fly the world famous SEA LIFE banner, globally recognised as the number 1 aquarium brand, when it is completed and reopened as SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium in September 2012.


The refurbishment is already underway and when complete, Sydney Aquarium will feature 14 newly-themed zones that will take you on a journey of discovery, including an exciting new Shark Walk, a Tropical Bay of Rays habitat, an interactive Touch Pool, a Shipwreck area and a newly themed ocean walk-through!


Not only will you be delighted but so will the resident aquatic life, which under the guidance of the leading experts in the field will be settled in to improved habitats; each one carefully designed and fitted to promote the marine animals' wellbeing.


Plus, the phase-like nature of the refurbishments will ensure minimum disruption, and not only will it be accomplished without closing the doors to the public, but offer exciting opportunities for you to preview developments and see Sydney Aquarium as you have never seen it before.
