SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Penguin Encounters are back and available from Friday 15 December, just in time for summer. Guests 14 years and over can enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with Sydney’s only sub-Antarctic penguin colony. Suiting up in snow gear, this 45-minute exclusive keeper-led tour takes penguin enthusiasts onto the ice, venturing behind-the-scenes to meet the birds in their state-of-the-art exhibit.
Guests can board the penguin boat ride (included in general admission) bringing them into the chilly world where majestic king and cheeky gentoo penguins waddle, hop, slip and slide – plus, catch a daily penguin keeper talk!
The aquarium is home to a huge range of marine creatures including 13 species of sharks, giant rays, marine turtles and Pig, the rescued dugong.
Opening hours vary.
