Ellaslist Opinion: SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is excellent for mums and bubs, all areas are easily accessed with a pram and even the tiniest baby enjoys gazing at the creatures behind the glass. Toddlers have plenty of room to run and explore (especially on weekdays) and pre-schoolers and up love trying to find Nemo and discovering other fish and sea creatures they recognise. Beware of all the merchandise, it's easy to spend a fortune on your way out but the main gift shop does stock some very good quality sea-themed books and toys. Highly recommended for a great family outing, especially on a rainy day!
Admission: Adult $38.00 Child (4+) $24.00. Annual Pass (including entry to WILDLIFE Sydney Zoo, Sydney Tower Eye and Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary) Adult $115.00, Child $80.00.
