Day and Night on the Reef

We’re excited to announce the launch of SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium's new $5 million investment - Day and Night on the Reef.

This all-new zone (launching November 2018) will transport guests to the Great Barrier Reef, where they can journey through the glowing world of jellies, explore a reef island under the moonlight, splash through waves of bioluminescent algae, explore the glowing corals and search for the shadows of predators, active on the night-time reef.

Guests can enjoy dinner or cocktails on Turtle Beach; here a wave is frozen in time, revealing a whole new spectrum of colour and creatures. This is the aquarium’s largest Ocean Tank vista with floor to ceiling viewing & will allow guests take in the beauty of the Great Barrier Reef for an unforgettable event experience.
