World's First Penguin Experience Set to March in SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is set to launch a first-of-its kind penguin exhibit this summer, with an immersive experience allowing visitors to get up close and personal to a spectacular colony of King and Gentoo Penguins. Opening in November, Penguin Island Expedition is inspired by Macquarie Island and will create an explorer out of each and every guest as they travel in a raft through a rugged, sub-Antarctic environment. Here guests can observe the inspiring creatures on land and under water and learn more about life on the remote island.
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium will work alongside the SEA LIFE Trust and Macquarie Island to highlight a strong conservation message throughout the experience.
