Frequently Asked Questions

Daybreaker began over a late-night falafel in Brooklyn, New York back in 2013. Social entrepreneurs and close friends, Radha Agrawal and Matt Brimer mused over an idea about dancing before the day broke with people they loved. The idea stemmed from a frustration with nightlife and all the stigmas that often
come with it —a lack of human connection, people engrossed in their phones, mean bouncers and the lack of dancing. Paired with a curiosity to explore the morning hours (a time that most people usually sleep through), Daybreaker was born.

Daybreaker is centered around creating a community that values camaraderie, self-expression, wellness, mindfulness, and mischief and has grown to over 450,000 followers and has launched in 24 cities with Sydney being the 25th..

This is your chance to dance with sea turtles, reef sharks and more than 500 tropical fish so we are celebrating the "Colours of the Reef"!  We want to see your most imaginative ideas -think mermaid tails, sparkles and shimmer, anything coral garden-esque!

Daybreaker at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has been created with animal welfare as the number one priority. Like all events held at the aquarium, this event will be hosted in a controlled environment to ensure the safety and well-being of all of our marine life.

Following a thorough risk assessment, marine experts determined strict noise limits that were deemed non-threatening to the creatures in the aquarium. On the day of the event, there will be both internal aquarium staff and external sound technicians onsite to monitor the sound levels to ensure they do not reach or exceed these limits. The curatorial team will also be on site monitoring the animals behaviour.
