Sealife Sunshine Coast

Tours Mooloolaba


No trip to the Sunshine Coast is complete without visiting SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast, a multi-award winning, all weather visitor attraction. SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast has been recognised as the best attraction in the region at The Sunshine Coast Business Awards in November 2017.


Situated at The Wharf at Mooloolaba, just moments from the main Esplanade, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is home to thousands of marine and freshwater animals – including sharks, crocodiles, seals, turtles, stingrays, tropical fish and more.

Explore 11 fun and interactive animal zones – across three levels, including the tidal touch pool, seahorse sanctuary, jellyfish kingdom and the majestic Grey Nurse Sharks in our one of a kind Ocean Tunnel.

With different fun talks and animal feeds, including the family favourite seal show, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast.

SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast also offers intimate, hands-on seal experiences like no other. There are three encounters to choose from.

1. Seal swim: You have the opportunity to make a splash and go swimming with the seals while experiencing their behaviours during the Seal Swim.

2. Seal encounter: If you’d prefer to keep dry, you can also meet the lovable resident seals by booking a Seal Encounter – the experience includes entry into SEA LIFE and photo opportunities.

3. Seal trainer for a day: Feel like getting to know the beautiful seals even more? Here is your chance with our Seal Trainer for a Day experience, where you can truly come face to flipper with our seals.

Leading Sunshine Coast tourism and leisure attraction UnderWater World recently announced the development of a new state-of-the-art shark facility at the aquarium with a major upgrade underway at the attraction?s shark tank. UnderWater World General Manager Tim Stonhill said to ensure UnderWater World continued to provide world-class leisure experiences, the attraction?s shark tank was being closed to the public while works were completed. Mr Stonhill said the upgrade to the shark tank would have no impact on any other aspect of the visitor experience at UnderWater World with all of the attraction?s other undersea experiences and animal displays open as usual. ?It will be business as usual at UnderWater World. Our sharks are just one of the exciting exhibits to see and experience at the aquarium,? he said. ?Once completed the new shark tank will be a brand new state-of-the-art exhibit, incorporating new themeing and bringing a revitalised presentation to one of UnderWater World?s most important displays. ?While the upgrade is taking place, we have reduced entry prices to UnderWater World as an incentive for visitors to come and see all the other exciting displays and attractions we have to offer. ?Visitors are still able to experience UnderWater World?s most popular attraction in the seal and otter shows along with thousands of other marine and freshwater animals including our resident crocodile, stingrays, sawfish, tropical reef fish and turtles.? Mr Stonhill said the shark tank upgrade represented a major investment by UnderWater World?s owner, Living and Leisure Australia Group, in both the aquarium and the Sunshine Coast tourism and leisure industry. ?The upgrade will bring immediate benefits for the local economy through the creation of employment opportunities as we progress works on the tank over the coming months,? he said. ?We also expect the upgrade will bring more visitors to the attraction once completed and will benefit the
