Joining in the city-wide celebrations, SEA LIFE Melbourne will be seen in a whole new light as it comes alive with hanging lanterns and never-before-seen festivities for Lunar New Year.  

In a further stroke of fortune, all guests who visit SEA LIFE Melbourne between 15-21 February will receive a lucky red envelope to celebrate the holiday of prosperity. Envelopes contain prizes and ‘lucky dip’ special offers including attraction discounts, Shark Dive Xtreme and Penguin Passport experience vouchers and stickers.  

Families can also treat themselves to one of Melbourne’s favourite delicacies, South Melbourne Dim Sims, now available from the onsite café.

Make a wish for the future at the wishing wall, and for a one-time-only event at 11:30am on February 16, watch as a Chinese Dragon swaps its dancing shoes for some flippers and goes for an underwater dive in the aquarium’s Coral Atoll tank.

Also getting in on the celebrations are everybody’s favourite sub-Antarctic King and Gentoo penguins who star in some unique photo opportunities that are featuring exclusively for Lunar New Year.
