SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is a multi-award winning visitor attraction for a reason. There’s no other place on the Sunshine Coast that can take you on an amazing journey from the coast to the depths of the ocean and get up close to over 10,000 creatures!  

Spread over 3 stories, there is plenty for everyone to enjoy but, if you’re still not convinced, here’s just a few reasons why SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is one of the best things to do on the Sunshine Coast.


Whatever the weather - we got you covered

Literally - we are completely undercover, so, whether you’re looking to escape the Summer heat or get out of the Winter cold and rain, you will not find a more interesting place to spend a few hours of your day. You’ll be mesmorised as you walk through Jellyfish Kingdom and entertained by our playful residents at Seal Island.


Great for the whole family

Not only is SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium a fun and magical place for kids to be, it's also educational. The best part is, the kids will be having so much fun they won’t even realise they are learning! You’ll be so happy seeing the excitement on their faces and listening to them “oooh” and “aaaah” as they explore, and so proud when they’re telling you what they learned on your journey home. There is so much to see and do that will stimulate your little ones minds, you’re sure to have a fun packed day and create long lasting family memories at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast.


Conservation is at the heart of what we do

Everything we do at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is not only about celebrating the sea, we are also very passionate about preserving marine habitats and protecting the incredible species that live in them.

We do this in many ways, including, raising funds for and supporting conservation projects across the world, inspiring people to care through education, protecting endangered species through breeding programs and ensuring we do not take anything from the sea for display. With every visitor that comes through our doors, we are helping to raise awareness of conservation issues and inspire more people to do their bit to look after our planet.


Location, location, location

As if you needed any more reasons, but we thought we'd top it off with this last one... SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is in the perfect location just at the end of The Wharf at Mooloolaba. It's a quick, leisurely stroll to some of the Sunshine Coast's best shops and restaurants, and only a two minute walk to the beach. The sandy shores of Mooloolaba Beach are a fantastic spot to spend the rest of the day relaxing, admiring the ocean, and thinking about all the creatures that are in there you just learned about.
