These school holidays enjoy the best of Australia all in the heart of the city! From our world-famous furry creatures, to our breath-taking marine animals or even our most stylish celebrities, Merlin Entertainments have family fun covered.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium: Fall in love all over again with ‘Sydney’s Aquarium’ right in the heart of Sydney. Meet the best of Australia’s marine life AND the stars of the attraction’s famous live streams which have kept thousands of families entertained whilst the attraction has been closed.  Journey through the aquarium to visit Manly’s Little Penguin colony, up the Queensland coast to meet Pig the dugong, see Sydney’s only sub-Antarctic penguin colony inspired by Australia’s Macquarie Island and then escape to the Great Barrier Reef inspired Day and Night on the Reef zone. The animals can’t wait to be greeted by their friends again!

WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo: Now is your chance to meet the stars of our iconic live streams which have kept thousands of families entertained whilst the attraction has been closed, including the Aussie Big Five!! Go on an Aussie Adventure at the Darling Harbour zoo, home to our iconic Aussie characters, and have your chance to snap a photo with our furry family of koalas* and kangaroos!

Madame Tussauds Sydney: It’s time to feel famous at Madame Tussauds Sydney! Get up-close & personal with your favourite celebrities and become the star of the story with our interactive experiences. Whether you’re visiting to save the world with the Justice League, meet the Royal family or master & perform a Bollywood dance routine on stage, it’s time to rub shoulders with the stars once again!
