Our Penguin Passport Experience Includes:
Go behind the scenes at SEA LIFE Melbourne and step onto the ice where you can get up closer than you ever thought possible to our colony of sub-Antarctic penguins.
With our Melbourne penguin encounter, you will first have the opportunity to access staff only areas, see the penguin food preparation area and find out just how our state-of-the-art exhibit maintains its sub-zero temperatures (even when it's a scorching Australian Summer outside!).
Next, you'll need to suit up into our sub-Antarctic snow gear before heading behind the glass and into the exhibit! You'll get to see majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins waddle, dive, slip and slide along the ice right in front of you. In this icy wonderland, you'll participate in playful enrichment activities and have plenty of opportunities to snap the perfect penguin selfie.
”This was a lovely experience, learning about the King and Gentoo penguins, then getting the opportunity to go out into the ice to meet them up close.”
”It was a great experience to see the penguins up close. Once we were on the ice, it was amazing. No, you don't get to feed or touch the penguins but you are so close that doesn't matter. We were very lucky in that a couple of penguins came up to visit.”
”Penguin Passport was awesome.. me and my partner loved it we learnt so much and enjoyed every minute of it.”
