Spring is officially here!

Spring is officially here and we are celebrating the new season with our expectant animal parents and baby sea animals! From penguin proposals, baby seadragons and tiny jellyfish, there's lots of underwater magic to be discovered these school holidays.

 

Check out the male Gentoo penguins romancing their female partner with a bow and a pebble, the fluoro green jellyfish bobbing around and if you're lucky you may spot a crayfish carrying its eggs.

 

Grab the kids and pop down to Kelly Tarlton's these school holidays where you can marvel at the underwater world and its mysterious sea life. Follow the quiz trail to our FREE activity room and discover more about our magical animals and their underwater lives

 

Saturday 24/Sept/2016 - Sunday 9/Oct/2016

 

Open Daily - 09.00am to 05.00pm (last entry is at 4pm)
