When you’ve finished up a fun-packed adventure at LEGOLAND, take the kids to enjoy SEA LIFE Melbourne Aquarium. The ideal indoor Melbourne attraction for rainy days, Melbourne Aquarium blends observational opportunities with a number of talks and presentations, while also allowing visitors and children to go hands-on via touch pools, kids learning activities, and more.
Each of the aquarium’s zones focuses on a different part of the underwater and aquatic world, ranging from mangroves and the shallows where you’ll see starfish and cuttlefish, to coral reefs full of colour-rich creatures such as jellyfish and where you’ll be able to “find Nemo”, to massive crocodiles, fearsome sharks and much, much more. It’s an attraction where learning and fun go hand in hand, and extras such as a 4D cinema show and various auxiliary activities for kids make a visit of several hours here well worthwhile and great value for money.
