SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is an iconic aquarium which is conveniently located in the heart of Mooloolaba, just an hour and twenty-minute drive from Brisbane.
The Little Blue Penguins arrived at the aquarium late last year as part of the launch of a brand-new exhibit. It’s a great reason for locals and visitors to the Sunshine Coast to visit!
To take your visit to the next level consider pre-booking an animal encounter:
- Shark Dive Xtreme: two-hour cage-less diving experience in the Ocean Tunnel with sharks and rays
- Penguin Encounter: feed the playful penguins and watch them up close inside the Little Blue Penguins’ habitat
- In-Water Penguin Encounter: Feed the adorable birds their favourite fish
- Seal Swim – Take a swim at Seal Island with the seals and the team, including a souvenir photo with one of our resident seals
- Seal Encounter: meet and shake a flipper with the seal from the land, including a souvenir photo
SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is also home to sharks of all shapes and sizes, thousands of colourful tropical fish, incredible live coral and a delightful colony of seals that you can see in action in the Seal Presentation, which is included in the admission price.
Visitors can discover all there is to know about the 11 different shark species at the aquarium through a range of activities. You can view them in the famous 80-metre-long Ocean Tunnel to get up close with sharks of all shapes and sizes including Honey the Leopard Shark, Winnie the Wobbegong and Huey, Patches and Pallas the three giant Grey Nurse Sharks!
