Don't forget our black and white friends
Get ready to immerse yourself in the vivid world of the colourful creatures that brighten up Sea Life Melbourne. There are five multi-coloured 'selfie walls' that they created in partnership with Discovery Channel's Animal Planet. The walls are inspired by the natural colours and textures of magnificent marine creatures such as Lionfish, Clownfish, Blue Tang and the Bubble Tip Anemone.
Guests can learn about sea creatures while exploring shapes, colours and textures. During school holidays, kids can uncover a mystery animal by visiting colouring-in stations. They will receive a 'Colourful Creatures' hat and will be able to create their own underwater adventure storybook.
Don't forget your black and white friends: the penguins! The colourful personalities of the King penguins and Gentoo penguins have influenced the final photo opportunity: Guests can write their loved one's name on a pebble and display it in the Penguin Playground nest, drawing inspiration from the way penguins present their partner with a pebble to show affection.
While there is no public car parking at Sea Life Melbourne, there are several public car parking facilities available only a short walk away. Try Secure Parking at 522 Flinders Lane, only 240m from Sea Life Melbourne. Price at time of publication: $18 Monday to Friday, $10 on Weekends, $12 on Public Holidays. Show your parking ticket at Sea Life Melbourne Admissions Desk and ask for a Secure Parking discount ticket, which you need to enter into the car park payment machine after the original ticket when you pay.
Sea Life is only a five minute walk from either Flinders or Southern Cross train stations.
