Merlin’s Magic Wand Fun Festival!

  • Wednesday 12th September 2018

This September, global children’s charity, Merlin’s Magic Wand, is celebrating 10 years of creating magical experiences for children and their families across the world!

Since 2008, Merlin’s Magic Wand has aimed to support children and their families who have faced challenges of serious illness, disability or adversity through a variety of initiatives including custom hospital makeovers, magical days out at Merlin Entertainments’ attractions and hospital visits for those too sick to leave their beds.

This year SEA LIFE Melbourne partnered with Challenge, Very Special Kids, and the Royal Children’s Hospital, to provide a fun-filled day out for the children and their families. This years theme was Pirates & Mermaids, and exciting activities included colouring, face-painting, book-readings, special animal feeds, and prizes! SEA LIFE Melbourne welcomed 30 kids and 50 adults on this special day!
