This summer discover Australia’s iconic and incredible creatures in the heart of Sydney with a visit to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

Check out our top tips on how to have a JAWsome visit to SEA LIFE Sydney these school holidays with your Aussie Animal Passport!


  1. 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.
  2. Are you an annual pass holder? You will also need to book in a time slot online here
  3. Download your Aussie Animal Passport before you visit, so you can spot iconic creatures from each state or territory around Australia! Stamp them all off to complete your passport!
  4. 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.
  5. Are you driving? Darling Harbour offers great cheap parking options from with Wilson Parking. Learn more
  6. Prefer to go pram free? We like it! It helps reduce crowding!
  7. Before your visit make sure you make a stop at the bathrooms in the admissions foyer. The next set of toilets is located at our Macquarie Island Exhibit, more than half way through the journey.


  1. Keep on the lookout for our core Aussie creatures so you can stamp them off your passport during your visit!
