What people are saying about Melbourne

We hadn't planned to visit Sealife but we were glad we did. The fish and sea life/creatures were interesting to see, especially the sharks and stingrays that swam over the top of the walkway. The penguins are always fantastic to see also. We had a laugh at the 4D Ice Age movie also.

Lots to look at. Big weekend crowd, but the viewing line did keep moving . Was good sanitizer was located everywhere. But no social distancing possible. Definitely take a mask if you are at risk.

Went on a very busy day but still loved it - fantastic seahorse display and jellyfish

Friendly staff. Very relaxing. Has easy access if you have a pram (elevator & ramps).

Quick and easy to get tickets. Bypassing big lines
