Melbourne's Most Unique

Book your Excursion

In line with the Victorian Government announcement of a return to stay at home restrictions, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium will be closed from Thursday 9th July onwards. We will be staying close to Government advice and look forward to welcoming back our guests as soon as we are able.

If you have questions or concerns about a future school booking, please reach out to a member of our education team at education@melbourneaquarium.com.au they will be happy to assist you.

With all students now undertaking remote learning, don’t forget that Merlin’s Education Toolbox is available to help you with free resources and lesson plan inspiration. Head to www.merlineducation.com.au to explore the worksheets and activities available.

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.
