Colour Creatures presented by Animal Planet

SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium has partnered with Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet to create an Instagrammer’s delight from 8 June to 21 July, with five interactive photo walls focusing on the aquarium’s most intriguing sea creatures!

Guests can immerse themselves in the vivid world of the Colourful Creatures that brighten up SEA LIFE Melbourne. The multi-coloured SEA LIFE selfie walls are inspired by the natural colours and textures of magnificent marine creatures such as lionfish, clownfish and more.

Colourful Creatures isn’t just about unique photo opportunities; kids can uncover a mystery animal by visiting each of the colouring-in stations. During the Victorian and New South Wales school holidays from 29 June to 21 July, kids will also receive a Colourful Creatures hat and be able to create their own underwater adventure storybook!

SEA LIFE Melbourne’s famous black and white residents – the regal King Penguins and cheeky Gentoo penguins – have influenced the final photo opportunity on the journey. Guests can write their loved one’s name on a pebble and display it, drawing inspiration from the way penguins present their partner with a pebble to show affection!
