Tickets and Passes Info

No. A child must enter the attraction with an adult (18 years and above) for safety reasons.

Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's is a self-guided aquarium. A Behind The Scenes tour can be purchased which includes a guided tour of the back of house areas within Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's. 

Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's can get busy during peak periods so there may be queues in these periods. We strongly recommend selecting the 'Print@Home and Mobile Ticket' option when purchasing your tickets online as there is no need to line up in the 'prepaid queue' to collect tickets from our ticket desk. Just head straight to our attraction entry points and scan your ticket! 

Tickets are available for purchase on the day at the attraction or from a number of authorised resellers and websites. However, when you purchase online via this website - the official Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's website - you can enjoy great discounts and deals on tickets as well as obtain fast-track entry to the attraction.

Day tickets are the various general admission tickets available for your visit to Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's. These included non-dated fully flexible tickets, discounted online savers where you need to select a date and time for your visit and a range of bundled admission + experience options.

Merlin Entertainments is one of the world's largest location-based entertainment companies and owners of Australia and New Zealand's best and most exciting visitor attractions, including SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. With 11 attractions across NSW, VIC, QLD and Auckland (NZ) we offer amazing days out for everyone!

The Merlin Annual Pass (AU/NZ) brings together all of Merlin's attractions, offering pass-holders HUGE savings for a full year to all of the included attractions. We're totally confident no other passes offer anything like as much value - because no-one else can!

Yes, you can park at Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's. However, there are limited spaces and during peak periods the car park can become full. We recommend alternative transport options during these periods like the Shark Bus shuttle or public buses.

In order to give the Penguin colony more room on the ice, we removed the Penguin ride. Now you can get even closer to the cheeky Gentoo and regal King Penguins.

Yes! Admission for children under the age of 3 is free to SEA LIFE Kelly Tarlton's when accompanied by an adult ticket or pass holder.
