About this Sydney Tour
Surrounded by the Indian and Pacific Oceans and a stone's throw from the Great Barrier Reef, Australia is home to riotous diversity of marine and freshwater animal life. The SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is a microcosm of that world, offering you the chance to see sharks, sawfish, stingrays, platypuses, penguins, tropical fish, and other colorful Indo-Pacific species in their unique environments.
And the diversity doesn't just span the modern era. There's also a fascinating exhibit called Jurassic Seas, where you'll encounter creatures that have been around since prehistoric times, including the nautilus, jellyfish, lungfish, and others. Are you ready to face your fears? Hit up Shark Walk and Shark Valley, whose formidable denizens have been roaming the depths for millions of years (though they haven't been with us that long).
If you don't mind getting a little wet, there's Shark Reef Snorkel, where you can safely submerge in a see-through tank and come face-to-fin with white-tip reef sharks, the curious sawfish with their serrated snouts, and hundreds of dazzlingly colored tropical fish. There's also the hands-on Discovery Rockpool, an interactive exhibit that brings starfish, sea urchins, and more to your fingertips. In fact, the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium brings the entire Australian marine microcosm together for you and your family to explore.
The Napoleon Wrasse is a large, reef-dwelling fish found across Indo-Pacific waters. The amazing thing about wrasses is that they can change gender from female to male. The reason is not known, although it may occur when males are in short supply. We witnessed this firsthand with our resident female wrasse, Natalie (now a male known as Napoleon), who turned from light turquoise to a deeper shade of blue and who developed the larger humped forehead characteristic of males.
