SEA LIFE Melbourne

Has The Event Space For You

Find Out About Our Unique Event Spaces Below

SEA LIFE Melbourne is without doubt one of the most unique and captivating function and events venues in Melbourne. With five spectacular spaces to choose from, you can tailor your space with special features that ensure your guests will have an unforgettable experience. 

Event Spaces

Visually stunning, the Fish Bowl is a completely unique experience. Treat your guests to an underwater world of wonder as they dine surrounded by hundreds of fish, great and small, as well as sharks and stingrays. From corporate breakfasts to elegant cocktail parties, this amazing space will ensure a memorable event.


Why not welcome guests from within the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, or suspend a banner with your corporate logo or special celebratory message? These are just some of the options available when hosting your event in one of Melbourne’s most spectacular spaces. Ask our experienced team for what extras are available to personalise your event.

A magnificent floor-to-ceiling tropical display welcomes your guests to the versatile Coral Atoll. View hundreds of exotic tropical animals and beautiful coral gardens. Create an unforgettable feature right in the heart of your event space, which also boasts stunning views across the Yarra River.

Accommodating banquet seating for up to 400, and cocktails for up to 650 people, this is the largest function space at SEA LIFE Melbourne, and perfect for award dinners, product launches, weddings, or school formals.

Also available when booking the Coral Atoll is Bay of Rays, a serenely beautiful space that replicates Melbourne’s Port Phillip Bay. This unique area is perfect for pre-dinner drinks and allows guests to experience a journey through another section of the Aquarium. Why not add on a marine expert to engage with guests and provide them with an opportunity to ‘touch a sea star’ in our Rockpools.

The Upper Deck at SEA LIFE Melbourne is set amongst a lush Rainforest. Inhabited by freshwater turtles, frogs, and other stunning rainforest species, this space also features a unique view of SEA LIFE Melbourne’s 5-metre saltwater crocodile, amongst the leafy canopies of the state-of-the-art Croc Lair exhibit. Included in this space is an outdoor deck which boasts stunning views across the Yarra River, truly one of the most spectacular and exclusive views of Melbourne’s city skyline.

Pristine, sleek, sophisticated, Antarctica is one of the ultimate event spaces with a difference. Housing majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins, you and your guests have the opportunity to party as you watch the penguins play and swim against the magnificent stimulated sunset.

The adjoining outdoor garden courtyard allows the flexibility to utilise both indoor and outdoor spaces for your events. It is the perfect location for drinks on arrival or an extended area for cocktail party.

Boasting uninterrupted views of the Yarra River, the Yarra Room at SEA LIFE Melbourne is a light, fresh space perfect for a leisurely lunch or your next inspiring conference venue.

The only event space available during the day, guests have the opportunity to tour the aquarium either before or after lunch. Ask our experienced team about the exciting guest experiences packages available.
