There are a few other important points to note:

  • Please ensure your group arrives on time to ensure we are able to admit you into the attraction. This is especially important during periods when we are under government advice to adhere to capacity restrictions. If you have a large group booking, split into multiple time-slots, please ensure you have organised your students into these groups before approaching the entry to the attraction.
  • Please complete payment for your excursion before you arrive and note that we operate a cash-less admissions desk.
  • We have a range of age and topic specific worksheets available to accompany a self-guided visit to SEA LIFE Sydney. They can be used in the classroom pre or post visit to get the most out of your excursion. Be sure to visit our Self-Guided Tours page to download the worksheets best suited to your group.
