Discover What's On

at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium

There's so much to see and do!

Dive into one of Melbourne's top attractions, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, and walk through our crowd-favourite oceanarium tunnels, get hands-on in the Discovery Rockpools and marvel as our King and Gentoo Penguins dive in and out of the water within their icy habitat. No matter your favourite underwater creature, our aquarium never fails to create lasting memories full of fun and adventure.

Below you can read about what's on right now at SEA LIFE Melbourne. Whether you're looking for things to do with your family or a unique date idea, you'll love a trip to the aquarium.
