Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Experience animal conservation in action at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and take an active part in our breed, rescue and protect programme.

We successfully breed some of our incredible local species; we are passionate about rescue, nursing animals back to health and releasing them back into the wild; and we endeavour to protect their natural habitats.

Meet our Little Penguins in Penguin Cove, be charmed by Myrtle one of our rescued sea turtles, and see Murdoch and Freckles, two captive bred Grey Nurse Sharks.

Located just 200m from Manly Wharf, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary will inspire you to become a passionate protector of marine animals.

* Please be aware that Manly SEA LIFE will sadly be closing its doors in January 2018.
