Booking Information for Schools

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast offers schools the opportunity to take learning beyond the classroom, offering curriculum-based, interactive excursions that bring the living world unit to life. We are home to a vast array of marine life which students can explore as part of a self-guided tour where you set the pace and focus. 

Some of the many benefits to schools include:

  • Exclusive 'schools only' access to the aquarium on Tuesdays and Wednesday during term time.
  • We offer a free of charge ratio for teachers to students. For more information, please see below.
  • Preferential rates for schools groups.
  • A range of fully-guided excursions, hosted by an education expert.
  • Teacher guides for use during a self-guided trip.
  • Curriculum-aligned worksheets to use pre and post-visit
