The Humpback Highway

  • Tuesday 31st July 2018

Every year between April and November, Australia's eastern coastline comes alive with the spectacular acrobatic displays of humpback whales. After a summer of feeding on krill in Antarctic waters, these charismatic animals migrate north to sub-tropical waters where they mate and give birth. 

Whales are some of the most interesting animals in the sea and we want you to learn all about these large creatures. From August 1st until September 28th SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is running an activity hub for guests to learn all about whale migration and behaviours. Every guest will also receive a take-home poster to learn more about whales at home too!

Don't forget to also join in on one of our daily storytime sessions at either 10:30am or 4:30pm, just after the giftshop!
