The best function venue in Sydney

Situated at the end of King Street Wharf on Darling Harbour, in the vibrant heart of the city, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is a truly versatile entertainment venue that can accommodate everything from small private functions through to large scale corporate events. 

A unique event venue

Set your event or function around stunningly themed oceanariums and exhibits where your guests can gaze in awe at the incredible marine animals that call these environments home.

Enjoy an open-air event or party on the deck of Mermaid Lagoon, home to our pair of Dugongs, or walk through tunnels beneath the waves in the oceanariums, where your function guests will have huge Grey Nurse Sharks and Giant Stingrays passing just centimetres above their heads.

Extra special events and function ideas

NOTE: Our Animals Come First

We develop and implement functions in coordination and consultation with the Marine Biologists at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium to ensure that there is no negative impact on the animals. Our functions within animal exhibits do not exceed the aquarium's normal day-to-day noise levels and are aimed to provide an intimate evening at the aquarium while maintaining an appropriate end time to benefit the animals. At any function or event SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium also requires that a Marine Biologist is onsite to monitor the animals at all times. We hope that our events are not only fun but raise awareness for marine conservation to all guests in attendance.
