HI niciv2014, Thanks for such a great review! Our Dugong, Mr Pig, is personally my favourite animal here at the aquarium! We hope to sea you again sometime soon

Perhaps school holidays was not the best time to go but it was extremely busy, with folk hustling you to peer into the tank you were observing. There was also a bit of a 'scrum' in the shark tank as folk simply did not move forward. Ineffective crowd control was employed by

Hey Monethetripper, Firstly, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. As a family attraction, our numbers increase during the weekends and it can often get quite busy inside. We encourage guests to visit us during the week and/or before 11 am or after 4 pm for a more quite and relaxing visit to the aquarium. We offer regular promotions and discounts on tickets all the time. Keep a lookout on our website for deals to help save money on tickets! We continue to review and upgrade our facility and your feedback is one of the best contributions to ensure we are taking the right steps to make our guests happy and comfortable. We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review. We would really like to know how we could improve to ensure that all our guests have a turtle-y awesome experience. Please email us at slsa.dm@merlinentertainments.com.au and provide us with your feedback

Great aquarium sights, pity about the lack of front desk service and non-operational extras inside. The signs are almost all in English only, but the clients are global. Example - Toilets is written, not pictures and very far away from some parts of the displays, no good if you

Hey Aquariumseeker, Thank you for your feedback from your recent visit to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Here at SEALIFE we want every guest to have a fun, relaxing and educational day out. From your comments it is clear that this did not happen and I sincerely apologise. Thank you for highlighting the need to have multi-lingual team members. We love talking to all our guests and learning about their individual cultures and we are currently working on improving our multi-lingual skills. A number of staff do speak a second, or even a third language and we are working on a way to make it easy for guests to identify these team members. I would like to apologise for the inconvenience this has caused throughout your visit with us at SEA LIFE. We conduct regular audits of our attraction throughout the day. We make notes on anything that isn't up to standard or not working and we aim to rectify these issues immediately. For example the coin machines can sometimes become jammed from a coin not moving through the machine correctly, and we can only fix this out of opening hours. We're not making excuses for our 'play extras' not functioning, we're just trying to explain the unexpected issues that may arise. I'd like to thank you for highlighting this in your feedback, it is extremely valuable information that will help us improve the aquarium for all future visitors. If you'd like to, please get in contact with us directly via our email SLSA.DM@merlinentertainments.com.au so we can look into what went wrong and how we might be able to sort it out. Best fishes, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

Hey Dan A, Thanks for your balanced review of your recent visit to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Tanks for noticing our improvements! We are working hard all the time to ensure we are maintaining a beautiful aquarium for our guests (and animals!) Pre-purchased tickets from our website are the way to go! If you buy them from another website (Ticketmates, etc.) you would have to make your way to the desk to exchange this for a paper ticket for entry. We hope to see you again soon!
