SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast Aquarium Tickets, Mooloolaba

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is a multi-award winning, all-weather visitor attraction situated at The Wharf in Mooloolaba. Explore 11  fun and interactive animal zones across three levels, including Little Blue Penguins, Tidal Touch Pool, Seahorse Sanctuary, Seal Island and the 80m Ocean Tunnel!

With sea creatures of all shapes and sizes, from huge sharks to playful seals and our adorable little blue penguins, there’s plenty of fun for everyone to enjoy.

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is home to a delightful colony of little penguins, with a brand new interactive exhibit across 2 levels. The Little Blue Penguins zone will immerse guests in the wonderful world of the smallest penguin species – above and below the water!

Come and watch the seals at play at Seal Island, where you can watch the fun and interactive seal show. Private seal swim sessions are also available for those who want to get up and close to these majestic creatures.

Roll up your sleeves and dip your hands into the interactive touch pool display. Here you will see an array of marine life, including starfish, sea urchins and sea cucumbers. Take a walk past the Seahorse Sanctuary and see how these tiny creatures live and interact with each other.

Discover a vast collection of marine wildlife as you would see them on the Great Barrier Reef. In this huge tank, you will see an array of coral, clownfish, crayfish, anemones and clams. Come and explore the Coastal Wreck and learn about animals that live in coral reefs.

Take a walk through the walk-through ocean exhibit, where you will see sharks swimming overhead as well as the majestic manta ray. For the adventurous, take a dive into the shark tank with a Shark Dive Xtreme tour. On this scuba tour, you will come face to face with dozens of species of sharks, stingrays and fish. Your package includes all dive equipment and training, a 1.5-hour dive experience as well as entry into the aquarium after your dive.

If you are coming from Brisbane follow the Bruce Highway north and exit after the Ettamogah Pub, then simply follow the signs to Mooloolaba. If you are coming from Gympie follow the Bruce Highway south and exit at the Maroochydore exit. Follow the signs onto the Sunshine Motorway. Exit at the Mooloolaba exit and follow the brown signs to UnderWater World.

There is plenty of parking surrounding SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, and it’s just a 2-minute walk from the beach at the southern end of the Mooloolaba Esplanade.
