Weekend trip

Very educational institution I believe the death rate would be high in the tanks seen several fish not moving an no movement from gills suggesting there time had expired.

Great to visit once if you have kids

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Entrance Ticket
A nice place to visit but with few let downs. In some areas it gets way too crowded and noisy (with background music). Many tanks had dirty glass which made the viewing difficult. Poor lighting and poor ventilation in some areas as well (especially around the tunnels). Information about the sea animals was patchy at best, relying on screens that show pretty basic details.

The visit to the aquarium, wild life zoo and Sydney tower brought us back to a few years ago before the kids were born. Everything seems familiar but it was a brand new and unforgettable experience for the family.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Entrance Ticket
It was wonderful experience for all of us. I would like to go again in a bit less busy period as we weren’t able to have a penguin look through the boat ride. It was 30 minutes waiting for 2 minutes ride and children were panic as well.
