What you can expect

The private Penguin Passport is your ticket to a once-in-a-lifetime encounter with a colony of sub-Antarctic penguins that calls SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium home. No other experience lets you interact with these gentle birds in such an up-close and personal way.

Suit up in Antarctic snow gear and let your friendly guide take you out onto the ice in a penguin sanctuary. Here, enjoy the exclusive opportunity to get close to majestic King and cheeky Gentoo penguins and observe how these joyful animals move and interact with each other.

During a behind-the-scenes tour of the penguin exhibition, get a look at the food preparation and veterinary areas, as see how this state-of-the-art facility maintains sub-zero temperatures. Learn all about the penguins' living conditions and marvel at the high standards of attention and care the animals receive in this aquarium.

With over 10,000 animals, interactive encounters, and technologically advanced facilities, SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium offers educational and completely engaging experiences for both teens and adults. You and the family leave with smiling faces and warm hearts after this memorable visit with penguins.
