We want to show you a fabulous new attraction which has been added to the already wonderful line-up at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium – the Penguin Expedition!

The Sydney Aquarium is a great family day out

The SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is such a great day out for the whole family. There are so many attractions to explore! From the amazing glass tunnel walk-through tanks teeming with dugongs, sharks, rays and other stunning fish, to the South Coast Shipwreck, Jurassic Seas, Sydney Harbour and so much more. You can even watch the dugongs receive their daily lettuce snacks at the surface of their massive tank!

When it’s time for a break, you can have a bite to eat in  the cafe, or get lost in the huge gift shop!

To see all the exhibits the aquarium has to offer, be sure to give yourself plenty of time for your visit. There are just so many sea creatures to see, and fun things for the kids to do…you could easily spend all day at the Sydney Aquarium.

Without a doubt, one of the highlights of the aquarium, is the Penguin Expedition boat ride.

The Penguin Expedition boat ride

The first thing you will notice when you enter the Penguin Expedition is how cold the sealed atmosphere is – of course it needs to be freezing to keep the adorable King and Gentoo Penguin inhabitants happy! In our video, you can clearly see for yourself the moment we enter where the temperature drops – the kid’s reactions to the cold are hilarious!

The ride itself is very gentle and slow, and involves climbing in and out of a very stable boat. The boats seat eight people, and drift slowly along the canal through the penguin colony.

The ride is included in your general admission, and you are allowed to take your camera in with you to take photographs or video as long as you don’t use your flash.

We took the following video for you to see what the Penguin Ride is like for yourself!
