International Wheelchair Day at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

  • Thursday 23rd February 2023


With free entry on Wednesday the 1st of March to Saturday 4th of March, wheelchair/mobility device users and their carers can enjoy a day at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium! Plus, on International Wheelchair Day itself (Wednesday 1st March), we will be opening our doors one hour early from 9:00AM for guests in a wheelchair, and up to two associated carers to enjoy the attraction. Timeslots are limited, so please ensure you book early to avoid missing out on this early opening.

“Over recent years we have been working hard to make all of Merlin Entertainments’ attractions as accessible as possible as we believe everyone, including people with diverse needs, should be able to enjoy magical moments. Some of the ways we strive to achieve this is by ensuring our staff have the right training, by continuing to look at how we provide the most accessible environments and making information available to guests ahead of their visit to help with planning,” said Ian Wood, Regional Director of Merlin Entertainments Australia and New Zealand.

Ian continued, “To recognise International Wheelchair Day we are delighted to offer free entry to mobility device users and their carers to the ten wonderful attractions we have around Australia and New Zealand”.

International Wheelchair Day takes place on March 1st annually and is an important day for wheelchair users to celebrate the positive impact a wheelchair has on their lives. It is also a chance to celebrate the great work of the many millions of people who provide wheelchairs or support and care for wheelchair users, all of whom make the world a better and more accessible place for people with mobility issues.
