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!
