Tickets and Passes Info

Tickets are also available for purchase on the day at the attraction, however, when you purchase tickets online via this website - the official SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium website - you can:

  • Save up to 20% on general admission aquarium tickets compared with walk up
  • Save with online-only experience discounts and deals for multiple Sydney attraction passes
  • Skip the queues with online mobile ticket entry

The Sydney Attractions Passes are multi-attraction passes that offer HUGE savings on admission to our family of 4 attractions in Sydney. All of the attractions included are part of the Merlin Entertainments family. The attractions are SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, Madame Tussaud's Sydney and Sydney Tower Eye.

The aquarium can get busy in peak periods so there may be queues in these periods. We strongly recommend purchasing tickets online and selecting the 'Print@Home and Mobile Ticket' option. This will allow you to skip the queues as there is no need to line up in the 'prepaid queue' to collect your tickets from our ticket desk. Just head straight to our attraction entry points and scan your ticket! 

Yes! Admission for children under the age of 4 is free to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium when accompanied by an adult ticket or pass holder.

Day tickets are the various general admission tickets available for your visit to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. These included non-dated fully flexible tickets, discounted online savers where you need to select a date and time for your visit, and a range of bundled admission + experience options.

The Merlin Annual Passes (AU/NZ) bring together all of Merlin's attractions, offering passholders HUGE savings for a full year** to all of the included attractions. We're totally confident no other passes offer anything like as much value - because no-one else can!

You can also purchase the Merlin Annual Pass as a gift voucher for a special someone who would love a full 12 month of unlimited fun.

No. A child must enter the attraction with an adult (18 years and above) for safety reasons.

Yes! We became part of the global SEA LIFE family in September 2012.
