SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium contains a large variety of Australian aquatic life, displaying more than 700 species comprising more than 13,000 individual fish and other sea and water creatures from most of Australia’s water habitats.

Is it worth it?

We visited SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium today, arrived at 11:00 AM and were done just before 1:00 PM. We took our time and took a lot of photos and video too. So our opinion is that it’s not really worth the visit and not worth $35 per adult

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium lacks activities to do and we’d expect to see a lot more sea life than we did. Although we did enjoy what we did see, we felt a little short-changed when getting to the end of the Aquarium so quickly.

The day is not without trying to sell you photos, trinkets and junk you don’t really need or want. Just remain strong, as we do not see that 3x photos are worth $25 online for download. It should be a service provided for free.

We recommend hunting around for a deal before considering visiting Sydney Aquarium. We obtained a buy 1 and get 1 free deal, so 50% off. 4 people cost $86 instead of $172
