Home to thousands of aquatic animals, including one of Australia's largest Saltwater Crocodiles, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium takes you on an interactive adventure from the depths of the ocean to the icy waters of Antarctica.

The stunning Croc Lair Exhibit is just one of the 12 new zones of discovery at SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium, where you can wonder at the world's only display of Elephant Sharks in Bay of Rays, be mesmerised as you experience a rainbow of colours at Seahorse Pier and marvel at the majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins in Penguin Playground.

With interactive animal encounters, iconic state-of-the-art displays, and animal feeds, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium is an excellent, educational and engaging experience, not to be missed.

If you are looking for something different, why not immerse yourself in an underwater world of fine dining and style at Melbourne's most unique function venue, right in the heart of the CBD. SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium provides the perfect underwater backdrop, guaranteed to make every occasion a splash.

SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium boasts seven spectacular spaces to choose from, including the enchanting Fish Bowl and Upper deck, featuring stunning views across the Yarra and Melbourne's city skyline. Whether it's a wedding, children's birthday party, cocktail or corporate function, the aquarium boasts magical marine spaces for the most intimate or extravagant event!

SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium's convenient location on the Yarra waterfront is just a short stroll from many inner-city attractions such as the Crown Entertainment Complex and Southgate Leisure Precinct.
