JOIN US IN OUR UNDERWATER CLASSROOM
Be immersed in our underwater world, and discover the learning opportunities at Kelly Tarlton’s.
Highlights of a trip include getting up close to New Zealand’s only colony of Sub-Antarctic Penguins – the majestic Kings and playful Gentoos. Come face to face with thousands of marine creatures including sting rays, sharks, octopus and more.
All visits include all day admission to our attraction, FREE self-guided resources online, and even a FREE classroom session with our Marine Biologists. Be sure to book in early for our classroom sessions, as we have limited spaces per day!
We have programs for Early Childhood, Primary, Intermediate, Secondary and NECA students.
We are making some exciting changes to our Education Program in term 2, 2018. Our new program will be called:
OCEAN TOTS - Early Childhood
OCEAN KIDS - Primary and Intermediate
OCEAN TEENS - Secondary and NECA
You will find information about these on our School Excursion Information 2018 page.
We are making these changes to align with our sister SEA LIFE Aquariums in Sydney, Melbourne and on the Sunshine Coast.
