Challenge kids visit SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium

SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium hosts more than 80 kids from Challenge for a day of underwater fun

On Friday 11 April, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium and Merlin’s Magic Wand welcomed some very special visitors from our friends at Challenge, a not-for-profit charity which supports kids with cancer and their families.

 

There were smiles all round as the kids and their families enjoyed a day of underwater fun, exploring the aquarium and enjoying a special Sea Egg Hunt.

 

With many more memorable moments to come, the special day marked the first ‘official visit’ as part of the aquarium’s new partnership with Challenge to help put a bit of magic back in the lives of seriously ill children.
