Where is it: Parkyn Parade, Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast
Why we love it: It’s a really interesting marine park set in wonderful Mooloolaba!
Tell me more: A family trip to the Sunshine Coast is not complete without visiting Sea Life Underwater World - an awesome little aquarium and marine park! And it will be even better these school holidays with the inclusion of their great new exhibit ‘Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience’! It’s a really cool little exhibit showcasing our favourite reef fish from Disney Pixar’s super fun film Finding Dory! Lots of immersive and interactive exhibits which it make it both educational and fun, but the highlight has to be the all-new Coral Reef exhibit where you can find of Nemos (clownfish) and Dorys (blue tangs)!
For almost 30 years Underwater World has been educating and entertaining with their magnificent collection of marine animals - there are a number of different tanks which house all sorts of different creatures – from star fish, jelly fish, all sorts of marine and freshwater fish, seals, otters, crocodiles and sharks! There are so many different things to see in the range of different aquariums and the magnificent glass-covered walkway underneath the shark tank! And it’s not just looking, you can also touch some of the star fish, feed a seal or even (if you’re game), go diving with sharks! The park also plays host to special exhibitions – like Dory and Octonauts – but also small displays like Creatures of the Deep with the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit the deep seas and Jurassic Seas which showcases some of the living fossils found in our oceans! We love aquariums, and this one is great fun for all the family! It’s always a lovely and fun atmosphere, and it’s definitely worthy of a visit!
