Tickets and Passes Info

Tickets are available for purchase on the day at the attraction, however, when you purchase online via this website - the official Sea Life Kelly Tarlton's website - you can:

  • Save up to 20% on general admission tickets in off-peak (Monday-Friday, outside of School and Public Holidays)
  • Save with online only experience deals
  • Fast-track entry to the attraction with an online mobile ticket

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! 

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) is a multi attraction pass that 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!

The Merlin Annual Pass also makes the perfect gift. Check out our gift vouchers page for more information.

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.

As our experiences at SEA LIFE Sydney run on specific days and times, the recipient of an experience gift voucher will be required to send an email to book in. Contact details are provided on their gift voucher.

When you pre-book tickets online via our official website, you can save up to 20% in off-peak (Monday-Friday, outside of Public and School Holidays).
