Family Activities in Auckland

Looking for things to do in Auckland? Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's offers something for everyone!

Whether you're visiting Auckland, or you're a local looking for things to do in Auckland with the family, then SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's Aquarium is your best bet!

Entertain the Family
There are over 13 themed zones including an indoor playground, Seahorse kingdom and our fresh-water display! See all of our exhibits and zones here.

Enjoy a Rainy Day Activity
We're a completely indoor Auckland attraction. So next time it's looking a little grey, why not come and hang out with the beautiful King and Gentoo penguins? You can even venture into the exhibit and on the ice with them in our penguin encounter experience.

Face Your Shark Fear 
Did you know you can jump into our Shark Cage and swim with Grey nurse, Sevengills and Wobbygong sharks? It's one of SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's favourite experiences and it requires no diving experience!

Bring Your Drawings to Life

Through creativity and state-of-the-art technology, Amazing Creations allows guests of all ages to design their own sea creature, scan it in at one of our four distinct stations and then see it magically appear in front of their eyes as it makes its way from an underwater screen to a huge interactive screen!
