South Coast Shipwreck
Venture into SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s new South Coast Shipwreck area, and discover the inhabitants of the deep and shallows, including Pineapple Fish, Octopus and Little Penguins!
Australia's oceans are rich with marine wildlife, and here, set
amongst this beached shipwreck environment you can discover a vast
array of animals including those found in Australia's coastal
waters like the elegant Weedy Sea Dragons and the odd-looking
Pineapple Fish. Not only do Pineapple Fish look vaguely like a
heavily armoured pineapple, they also have a small light on their
lower jaw for communicating with other Pineapple Fish and for
finding prey in the dark.
Pillage the depths of the sea to discover the ferocious-looking,
but shy Green Moray eels - which despite their snake-like
appearance, are indeed fish - peering out from inside their
crevices. Or discover the Common Octopus - which with its
distinctive bulbous head, huge eyes and incredible ability to hide
in plain sight, is considered the most intelligent of all
Or you can peep at tropical fish and amazing coral through
slatted timber portholes, whilst looking out to shore and watching
the playful behaviour of Sydney Aquarium's colony of Little
Sydney Octopus: One of the most intelligent animals in the ocean
Little Penguins: The world's smallest species of penguin - but the noisiest!
