Sydney combo attraction passes

Our incredible value SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium multi attraction passes offer entry to up to 5 of Sydney's best visitor attractions on one pass. Mix and match from the 2, 3, 4 and 5 attraction combo passes available underneath the 'Attractions Passes' tab located further up this page. Attractions included are SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Sydney Tower Eye, Madame Tussauds Sydney and Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary. These SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium multi attraction passes are perfect for family days out in Sydney, and you save at least an extra 10% compared to walk-up combo pass prices when you buy online.

 

How do the combo attraction passes work?

Our combo attraction passes offer you one entry into each of the attractions included on your chosen pass. When you buy a multi-attraction pass here on the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium website, you will be required to select a date for your visit. This is the date for your Sydney Aquarium visit ONLY. From the date you select for your SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium visit, you will then have 30 days to visit the other attractions included on the pass you have chosen. The reason you must visit SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium FIRST when you buy any multi attraction pass on this website is because it is upon arrival at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium where your tickets to the other attractions are issued to you. The other attractions are unable to issue those tickets from their ticketing systems. You can then use them to gain entry at the other attraction/s on the same day as your Sydney Aquarium visit if you wish, or on a date within 30 days from that point. Likewise, if you buy a multi attraction pass containing SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium on the website of one of the other attractions (WILD LIFE Sydney, Sydney Tower Eye, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary or Madame Tussauds Sydney), then you will need to visit whichever attraction you bought the pass from first, on the date specified by you when you made the booking. You will then have 30 days to visit SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and the other attractions. Click to view and buy the Sydney attractions passes.

Additionally, if you use an Australian credit or debit card to buy your tickets on this site and are charged a foreign exchange fee, please contact our customer service team using the details provided on this website and we will credit back the fee - we don't believe Australian banks should be applying fees to Australian card holders.
