Underwater World -Sea Life
No trip to the Sunshine Coast is complete without visiting SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast. Previously called Underwater World, our aquarium is a multi-award winning, all weather visitor attraction.
Take a fascinating journey from the coast to the ocean depths and get up close to over 10,000 creatures including one of Australia’s largest collections of jellyfish. Meet our rare weedy sea dragons, our famous resident seals and over 20 species of shark and rays.
Underwater World became a part of the SEA LIFE family when it was acquired by Merlin Entertainments in 2013. It’s still the same great Mooloolaba aquarium so many people have wonderful childhood memories of, now backed by a globally renowned brand.
By Underwater World being rebranded and joining the SEA LIFE family, the aquarium is now able to share knowledge and collaborate with staff at the other 40+ SEA LIFE aquariums around the world. Having this extensive support system is invaluable in being able to gain priceless knowledge that can be used to look after and treat our animals and natural habitats.
SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is incredibly focussed on education and development and the upgrade to the aquarium also saw the introduction of new research programs which embrace the attractions strong ethical and environmental values of breed, rescue and protect.
Here’s some fun facts about our aquarium, as well as some of our favourite exhibits that now make SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast better than it’s ever been.
With lots of different fun aquarium talks and animal feeds, including our family favorite Seal Presentation, there’s plenty for everyone to enjoy at SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast.
