'DAY AND NIGHT ON THE REEF' Sea Life Sydney Aquarium
Posted by:Family Travel Blogger


Sea Life Sydney Aquariums newest exhibit has just been launched and it is certainly impressive, interactive and an ideal family outing.

This new $5million innovative and interactive experience took 7months of construction developed by a team of over 100 creating a colourful interactive journey of the world famous Great Barrier Reef.

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the seven wonders of the natural world and is on a must do list for both Australians and International visitors.

The ‘Day and Night on the Reef has been designed to convey several distinct time zones which reflect various moments in time that are experienced on the reef during day and night.

We began our Great Barrier Reef journey at "6pm" and were in awe of the coral gardens which glow under the night lights. Then moving through to Jelly Lullaby, this is always a family favourite, the jellyfish moving around glowing brightly.

Continuing onto the bioluminescent shore of Moonlight Beach the kids enjoying skipping and jumping around watching their footsteps glow as tiny bioluminescent organisms inhabiting the coral reef light up the ocean below.

To then witness a digital display of coral spawning, the kids loved controlling the currents through motion sensors.

This wonderful exhibit is an opportunity to experience the animals by day and night, learning along the way through interactive exhibits and teaching us how we can protect our reef.

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium hopes its guests will see this state of the art exhibit to experience the beauty of the reef and understand some of the threats the reef faces.

Day and Night on the Reef is now open to the public at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium welcoming guests daily in the heart of Sydneys CBD.

Be sure to add this to your school holiday activity list this Summer.

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium on Darling Harbour is open 7 Days 10am - 6pm (last entry 5pm)
