Self-Guided Tours

Dive into a self-guided tour!

Our underwater classroom brings the living world unit to life, giving students an unparalleled opportunity to experience our amazing marine life for themselves. Different zones make it easy to explore and there's information along the way to help your students learn more about our amazing creatures.

A self-guided tour gives you the flexbility to focus on the zones and animals of your choosing, stopping along the way to discuss topics that relate to your area of study in the classroom. Select from a range of complementary worksheets that can be used onsite during your visit or back in the classroom post-visit.

There's so much to 'sea' and do

Watch our brand new colony of Little Blue Penguins as they waddle, jump and play, explore the depths of our ocean tunnel coming face-to-face with sharks and turtles, take a trip to seal island and watch our famous seals in action and don't forget our coastal wreck zone, with multitudes of different fish and marine life!
