Penguin Playtime at SEA LIFE Melbourne This School Holidays! 

Easter School Holidays 2017

Join the fun at SEA LIFE Melbourne this school holidays as the Penguin Playground comes to life with penguin themed activities in celebration of our cutest residents, the King Penguin chicks! Waddle in during the Easter holidays for penguin themed playtime.

Learn all there is to know about penguins at the interactive penguin discovery table, get in disguise with your own take-home penguin mask and ask all your penguin questions at the penguin presentations held throughout the day. Basil, E.J., Pan-Pan and Sybil are growing up so quickly, born weighing approximately 200 grams each they now weigh over 10 kilograms.

Thanks to their very healthy appetites all the chicks are bigger and fluffier then ever! Slowly the chicks are getting their independence from their parents; eating whole fish and venturing out. They are developing social skills and soon they will be able to interact with the rest of the colony.

Waddle in these School Holidays to meet Melbourne's Coolest Chicks!

Dive in this summer and explore the all new attraction, Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience!

Check it out here!

Created with Disney•Pixar, the new experience is a world first aquarium exhibit, featuring interactive magical moments from the box-office smash hit, Finding Dory.

This immersive experience will allow visitors to actively participate in Dory’s journey as they adventure across the ocean to learn all about the amazing underwater world. 

Throughout the aquarium journey, a Pipe Pals trail will guide and surprise with tales of amazing underwater animals, leading you to Dory’s reef. 

Experience fun activities including, Ridin’ the EAC, where you get your arms pumping to watch your very own paper turtle fly around the exhibit, and race your friends’ turtles back to the reef!

You can then challenge your friends and family to see who can reach immunity the quickest in Nemo’s Anemone Race! Race through the anemone and build your resistance, just like clownfish in the wild.

Bailey’s Echo Locator is next, where you can help your friends journey through the maze by encouraging them through a fun network of communication pipes!  

The highlight of Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience is meeting schools of Blue Tangs (Dory) and Clownfish (Nemo) in an all-new stunning Coral Reef exhibit.
