Harry Potter :The Exhibition has finally arrived on Aussie shores offering fans a first-hand look inside Harry's magical world. On display will be the amazing props and costumes that actually appeared throughout the Harry Potter film series.

Hundreds of authentic film props will be displayed in settings inspired by Hogwarts the School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, including the mystical Gryffindor common room, Hagrid's hut, the Great Hall and many more. The best part is all guests are sorted in to house groups; will you be in Slytherin or Gryffindor?

Sydney Aquarium

www.sydneyaquarium.com.au


Sydney Aquarium is a magical underwater world that holds the world's largest collection of all-Aussie marine life. It is so conveniently set in the heart of Sydney on Darling Harbour, so you can make a day of it and visit the aquarium with the kids and then have lunch by the harbour.

Come face-to-face with adorable little penguins, seahorses and tropical marine life from the Great Barrier Reef. Or get up close and personal to sharks in a glass-bottomed boat if you dare! Or visit the world's only captive dugongs on display in Mermaid Lagoon. Don't miss out on the Lego display that is currently on display around the aquarium.

Wild Life Sydney

www.wildlifesydney.com.au


Find yourself on an amazing animal adventure right in the middle of Sydney city. Walk through iconic Aussie habitats and encounter some of the most loved and feared animals that call Australia home. Wild Life Sydney is home to a huge five metre croc, who has eaten two of his enclosure-mates; needless to say this croc is not friendly. See kangaroos and emus in The Outback, cuddly koalas in Gum Tree Valley and take in some entertaining live shows, daily feeding sessions or walk through the mystical Butterfly Tropics, where the beautiful and exotic butterflies fly freely in their habitat and they may even land on you.
