I was very impressed by the immersive and vibrant displays of marine life and the staff were very informative. We loved the dugong talk and the penguin boat ride in particular. The staff was really great at telling the story of Pig the dugong and how he got rescued. Would definitely recommend a visit to anyone visiting Sydney.

The booking procedure was really easy and quick. Just one click and I received an email with my ticket to enter the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. As we entered the admission area, we didn’t encounter any issues.

We had an amazing Experience Oz ever. Fast, easy and convenient transaction. In one click the admission ticket we’re sent to my email and hassle-free transaction. I’ll surely use the site next time we plan for any family bonding. I will highly recommend this to my family, relatives and friends.

A lot to see and experience was a lot of fun, totally worthwhile.

Was amazing, it was a really magical experience. So much larger than I expected. Pig the Dugong was so cute and great to see him play and frolic. The sharks were also great to see, the tanks were so well laid out so you could see everything from any angle.

Lots of fun, friendly staff. Would be great if the aquarium could match Toronto, in terms of the number of animals and renovation.

Friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable staff. Lots of animals to watch. The Penguin ride is very nice but feels like a quarter of a 100m race. The tunnel viewing was nice but feels a bit dated. Especially for those who had been to Toronto's Sea Aquarium would be disappointed. Got to see some unique and amazing animals like the Dugong, King Penguins and Gentoo Penguins. Still love the Sealife Aquarium a lot and had a lot of fun. Spent almost 4 hours there.

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Experience tickets purchased from Experience Oz

Experience Oz provided a truly magical experience. It was an escape from the ordinary, allowing me to appreciate the wonders of the ocean in a captivating and educational way. I left with a deep sense of appreciation for our marine world and a renewed commitment to its protection. I highly recommend Experience Oz to anyone seeking a memorable and enriching experience.

My daughter loves it, she has so much fun 😊 😊😊

Been a few times to the aquarium and each time is always enjoyable. Lots of different marine life and the tanks/enclosures are very detailed and spacious. Really nice to walk around and learn new things about marine life and our oceans. Kids loved it as well!

This was my first time seeing this exuberance of sea creatures. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Sydney.

A very memorable day at SEA LIFE. This place is full of wonderful things to explore and to experience. It’s so much bigger inside than you expect and it doesn’t disappoint. Thank you Experience Oz, you guys are great... Extremely rewarding, and I highly recommend this.

Well set out and easy to find everything - all the sea animals.

The kids love the aquarium, especially the sting rays. The cost is a bit much for what it is and how fast you can move through it. But it was a nice morning out. The Cafe was lovely and had very kid-friendly food. Love that it is on the harbour's edge to make the day a bit longer.

Great day out with the family, the aquarium is amazing

Great day out with the family, would recommend to everyone who is looking for something to do with the family, we had a later booking and decided to come earlier they were more than accommodating to adjust our timing so we could enter as soon as we got there
