School Excursions

Melbourne's Most Unique

Book your Excursion

In line with the Victorian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions, we are happy to announce that we will reopen our doors to the public on Monday 1 June 2020.

If you have a school excursion booked with us or would like to book, please reach out to our education team at education@melbourneaquarium.com.au. 

To help you during this period of remote learning we have just launched Merlin's Education Toolbox, an online hub for teachers and parents with a variety of FREE resources that can be used to supplement lesson plans and provide enriching activities whilst students are at home. Check it out at www.merlineducation.com.au.

A Big Day Out

SEA LIFE Melbourne's Underwater Zoo is a professional, curriculum-based education service offering a variety of self-guided and guided programs from kindergarten to tertiary students. We treat our animals as an educational resource, presenting them alongside educative programs, which inform the public on the biology, status and conservation problems of the species. Following the Victorian Curriculum, the programs are delivered by passionate educators, who inspire and engage students through the exploration of SEA LIFE Melbourne's amazing zones.
