Sealife was really really nice. Parking was really easy to find. My daughter loved it. My wife loved it. I loved it. My daughters' pram was easily able to be wheeled around. She was also able to sleep in one of the darker areas. When we left, we went shopping. The shops are so close.

Hayley Foggo 1 month ago

Highly recommend. We took 4 children under the age of 10, the youngest being 5 for her birthday to Sydney SeaLife. The day was an experience I think she will remember forever. The staff at arrival were very friendly and got us inside to start exploring ASAP. The facility was was clean, there were a lot of interactive mini-games for the children to play. All in all the experience was well worth the trip.

Everything was good as usual
Nishant Mathur 2 months ago

Everything was good as usual. The penguin ride was not working but that's a free ride so I really cannot complain. The ramps that take you down and up for the glass tunnels become too much for people having difficulty walking, so a lift in that area would really help. We must remember that elderly tourists do not have wheelchairs when they come to Australia.

Jeevan Sharma 2 months ago

Amazing. Got to see sea species all over the world in one place. Also, love the boat ride which was an amazing experience. I visited this place with my family and everyone loved it. It is one of the most visit places in Sydney and would recommend it to everyone.

We saw sharks and penguins for the first time
Juliana Muniz Rocha 3 months ago

We saw sharks and penguins for the first time! It is a very interesting place both for kids and adults. Just not very pleasant on busy days. But if you're in Sydney with some spare time, I definitely recommend paying a visit to the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.

The whole journey to purchase tickets was easy and the prices were better than any other provider available
Kapil Rai 3 months ago

The whole journey to purchase tickets was easy and the prices were better than any other provider available. I would definitely recommend checking prices on Experience Oz before committing to any other site or directly with the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.

I would have given it 5 out of 5 if it wasn't so crowded
Amanda Butcher 3 months ago

I would have given it 5 out of 5 if it wasn't so crowded! The aquarium itself was wonderful, lots of different things to see and do. My boys favourite (7 and 9 years old) was the VR ocean experience, they couldn't stop talking about it! My baby girls favourite (2 years old) was the rockpool bit which was a great sensory experience for little ones, to touch starfish and splash in the water. My personal favourite was seeing the stingrays so close when walking through the ocean tunnel. You do get value for your money, we were there for 3 hours! Would definitely visit again!

The booking process was simple online
John Moar 3 months ago

The booking process was simple online. It was a bit longwinded transferring the mobile ticket to an actual one when we arrived at the Sea Life aquarium and this could be done better. The actual experience in the aquarium was very good. My grandsons were fascinated by all the different varieties of fish and other sea creatures, particularly the sharks, stingrays and penguins. The queue for the Penguin boat ride was long and the automatic doors had a problem, delaying things a bit more, but again the children enjoyed the ride, so was worth waiting for. All in all a good day out, especially with the discount for booking through Experience Oz and also from writing reviews on previous days out.

The experience was really enjoyable
Erin Khaw 4 months ago

The experience was really enjoyable. The ticketing process was extremely simple and made the process a lot easier than expected. We went during the off-peak time which meant the aquarium wasn't as crowded as it usually is on the weekends. This meant we were able to take our time and enjoy every bit of the aquarium!

I went to SEA LIFE Aquarium with 4&1-year-old children and it was great fun
Wonmi Lee 4 months ago

I went to SEA LIFE Aquarium with 4&1-year-old children and it was great fun! All the staffs were very kind and enthusiastic to answer our questions about the animals. Special thanks to Jeremy - I learned more about sharks! I am willing to visit again after the school holidays.
