School Excursion

A Sydney Favourite


A Big Day Out!

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is one of Sydney's favourite school excursion venues.

See the world's largest collection of Australian aquatic animals on display. There's over 13,000 animals to see representing some 700 different species! Schools are welcome throughout the year to engage in our place - based learning.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is home to a range of unique Australian animals including fish, reptiles, mammals, amphibians and invertebrates. You will be immersed in a range of habitats and ecosystems including inter-tidal, temperate ocean, harbour, and tropical reefs. We have dugongs, turtles, sharks, penguins, tropical fish and they look forward to seeing you soon.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has the world's first ride through Penguin experience.

Read FAQ's about taking students on the ride including height restrictions and teacher/student ratio.

 Our *NEW* state of the art Day & Night on the Reef is now open.
