Snap up the jaw-some school holiday fun at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium

With no relief to the summer heat wave in sight, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is the cooooolest place to be these school holidays!

 

Waddle in and beat the heat as there’s plenty more underwater school holiday fun in store!

 

CROC LAIR

Melbourne’s MEGA CROC Pinjarra is making quite the splash with the school holiday crowd! Did you know that instead of chewing, Saltwater crocodiles swallow rocks that help grind up their food inside their stomachs? Discover more about what makes these prehistoric giants so special in the all-new daily croc talk!

PENGUIN PLAYGROUND

It seems that in a blink of an eye SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium’s Gentoo penguin chicks have grown from palm-sized hatchlings to almost full-grown penguins! Our gorgeous black and white youngsters have been placed in a crèche, where they can learn the ways of the colony in a safe environment.

 

Come in and see our chicks before they’re all grown up!

 

Can you spot last year’s King Penguin chicks?

Wallace and Neptune, Australia’s first King penguin chicks ever to be born in Australia have transformed into quite the handsome regal pair. See if you can spot them chilling out on the ice!

 

Hint: They look just like their parents except their orange beak plate is black.
