$10 Behind the Scenes Tour*

Behind the Scenes Tour


Our fishy friends are hungry ones; explore behind the scenes at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium in Darling Harbour and help us feed them. Of all the things to do in Sydney, this 30 minute guided tour is sure to top your family's list. 


Journey back of house and meet our resident family of stingrays that call the Oceanarium home. The highlight of the tour is seeing the massive stingrays pop up right next to you, as your SEA LIFE guide hand-feeds these beautiful, graceful and fascinating animals.

Then, it’s all aboard the Glass Bottom Boat! Glide above the 2.2 million litre Oceanarium, and get closer than ever before to sharks, a giant grouper and thousands of other amazing aquatic animals that call the Oceanarium home.

Sunshine Coast

Step behind-the-scenes and see what happens behind closed doors in the aquarium. Take a look in our back-of-house areas to learn more about how we care for our animals.


During the 25 minutes in-depth tour of the aquarium's main 'back of house' areas, you'll get to see how everything works at the aquarium, plus feed the fish in our largest fish display.
