Australia’s wild and wonderful aquatic life is highlighted at the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, one of the world’s largest aquariums and among Sydney’s top visitor attractions.
There are several exhibit areas representing Australia’s varied habitats and ecosystems, including platypus from the Southern Rivers, salty crocodiles from the Northern Rivers, dugongs in the Mermaid Lagoon, little penguins from the Southern Ocean, and tropical fish from the Great Barrier Reef.
Sharks swim overhead glass tunnels, there’s a tropical touch pool and corals in the Great Barrier Reef, and daily activities include glass-bottom boat shark feeding, talks with the dugongs, penguin feeding, and Reef Theatre displays.
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is in Darling Harbour, flanking the western side of central Sydney. Follow Market St if you’re getting here on foot, jump off a ferry from Circular Quay, take the Monorail to Darling Park Station or if you’re coming into town, get off the train at Town Hall Station. The crocodiles, koalas and kangaroos of Sydney Wildlife World are next door to Sydney Aquarium.
