Memorable family fun
I haven't been to the aquarium for many years - so we were pleasantly surprised with some of the new displays and rooms. My young daughter was in awe of all the fish as she walked under the sea. Walking through the aquarium took me back to when I was a kid ogling at the tanks. It was a truly magical time.

It was wonderful experience for all of us. I would like to go again in a bit less busy period as we weren’t able to have a penguin look through the boat ride. It was 30 minutes waiting for 2 minutes ride and children were panic as well.

I chose the two tour option from this tour package. I chose the SeaLife Aquarium and Madame Tussaud’s. I was not disappointed with either choice. I always take pictures and both were excellent in person and on camera. The pictures from Madame looked so real you would have thought I actually took pictures of the real live actor .. in person. Pictures taken in the aquarium of different fish was just as amazing. You should see the pictures of the sting rays. Loved this selection on the tour choice.

SEA LIFE so-so, WILD LIFE wonderful

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium did have a really nice penguin excursion--a little boat ride (bring your jacket!) through a refrigerated penguinarium where the king penguins are stars of the show. It was a lot of fun watching them mug for the visitors while the keepers were trying to get them to step on a scale. The penguins alone were worth about half of the admission price, but think hard about whether you really want to spend the other half just to see them. The rest of the aquarium is the sort of stuff you could see anywhere (with the possible exception of rescued dugong Pig). But WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo was worth every penny. They have every Australian animal you can think of, and the animals are very easy to view and photograph. (Only the Tazzie devil was hiding.) Adults who are quiet and well-behaved may get invited behind the scenes for an even closer look. I had an amazing experience with some wallabies which cost me nothing extra. Although (or possibly because) it is small, WILD LIFE gives you a better look at Australia's wild life than the much posher Toranga Zoo across the harbour.
