Have you ever gazed into a rock pool and wondered what lives inside? This Spring discover and meet the creatures of the intertidal zone with SEA LIFE Sydney's newly renovated rock pool. To help ensure that your visit to the aquarium goes swimmingly check our handy tips & tricks checklist!
  • Book online for entry. When booking a ticket you must book in a time slot online before you visit us. This helps us reduce crowding and maintain social distancing, so all our guests can remain comfortable.
  • Are you an annual pass holder? You will also need to book in a time slot online here
  • Day out for the whole family? Please provide your kids with your contact number so if they wander off we can reunite them with you easily! If you do lose your child/family member look for a staff member in a blue shirt and they will alert the team.
  • Are you driving? Darling Harbour offers great cheap parking option from just $5 with Wilson Parking. Learn more 
  • Prefer to go pram free? We like it! It helps reduce crowding!
