SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium turns 14!

SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium celebrates 14 years of amazing underwater adventures!



Today, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is celebrating its 14th Birthday! To kick off the birthday festivities, penguin keepers treated their feathered brood to a party on the ice including bubble blowing, sprinklers, and a special cake filled with delicious fishy treats.

 

The colourful three-tiered cake, topped with pilchards, whitebait and squid proved to be a massive hit with both the King and Gentoo penguins, with many of the cheeky birds crowding around to quickly gobble down their delicious birthday surprise. 

 

Celebrations continued well into the morning as keepers kept a steady stream of bubbles floating through the air, while the penguin population waddled around popping the bubbles with their beaks.

 

Pinjarra, Melbourne’s MEGA CROC also joined in on the festivities, snapping up a delicious whole chicken with his magnificent jaws.

 

 

Beat the heat these school holidays!

Despite the scorching summer heat wave Melburnians are currently facing, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium has plenty of school holiday action to keep the little ones entertained.
