Merry Fish-mas from SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium

  • Thursday 19th December 2019

Christmas has come early at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium where the resident sea creatures were treated to some festive fun thanks to Scuba Santa and the aquarium’s dedicated team members.


The Gentoo penguins received presents, including a brand new tunnel for the cheeky birds to play in. At lunchtime, Pinjarra the saltwater crocodile enjoyed a whole turkey for his own personal Christmas feast!


Santa Claus also swam by, swapping his sleigh for a scuba tank to plunge into the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium alongside sharks, rays and a helpful elf. Scuba Santa also made an appearance in the Penguin Playground’s icy pool!


For those looking for an underwater adventure over the Christmas break, SEA LIFE Melbourne is open 7 days, including Christmas Day and Boxing Day, from 9:30am – 6pm (last entry 5pm).
