The Ultimate Kids Party Venue in Melbourne!

Is it time, yet again, to try and think of something fun and exciting to do for your kid’s birthday? Here at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, we understand how painful that can be, trying to pick somewhere that’s “cool”, won’t break the bank, and that doesn’t require an immense amount of work for you. So, here’s a few reasons why SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is the ultimate kids party venue in Melbourne.


We Do All the Work for You

Let us take all of the hassle out of the process by taking advantage of our kids birthday party package! We take care of everything for you including invitations, decorations, fun kids activities, food and drinks. The package includes two hours in our party zone with a dedicated SEA LIFE Melbourne party host. Your friendly party host will set up, serve your food and drinks, ensure you have everything you need for the duration and even clean up after you leave. Simply sit back and enjoy watching your child create long-lasting memories with their friends.


A Truly Unique Party Space

You and your guests will have access to a special party zone in our spectacular Rainforest Area, where you will be transported from the depths of the ocean to the tropical north and encounter some unique animals including Lungfish, Fresh Water Turtles and snakes. What’s more, you and all of your guests will get access to the entire aquarium after your party finishes – continue your aquarium adventure, there’s no need to leave right away!


An Educational & Fun Day

As part of your kids party package, your child and their friends will embark on an exciting one hour guided tour of the aquarium with one of our fun and friendly expert Aquarists. We really love that we can sneakily add in some education to all the fun without the little ones even realising it, they will just be so amazed at all the marine life they see and learn about they won’t even realise they are also learning a thing or two. Who knows, you might even end up with a little marine biologist or animal keeper in the making.


Enjoy a 4D Cinema Experience

When looking for children’s party venues, you won’t find any other that is quite as exciting as an aquarium that also has a 4D cinema. Yes - we have a 4D cinema in SEA LIFE Melbourne, how cool is that?! For those that may not know, a 4D cinema experience is the same as watching a 3D movie, BUT with some added special effects to make it seem even more realistic, such as wind, rain, smells and even snow! Your kids will love joining Scrat and his pals Manny, Diego and Sid on his Ice Age adventure as he battles with a broken time machine that has zapped his beloved nut. There will be laughs and gasps a plenty as your children enjoy this thrilling experience.
