Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is preparing to reopen on Friday November 13th after lockdown restrictions were eased in Victoria, Australia.

The aquarium is preparing a range of health and safety measures and will have a reduced capacity to ensure visitor safety. Safety measures include staff wearing PPE, installing hygiene screens and requiring guests over 12 to wear face masks.

“We are incredibly happy to be able to welcome guests back to SEA LIFE Melbourne and give people of all ages the opportunity to experience a fun and educational day out after spending so much time at home. Safety is our number one priority and we have implemented a range of health and safety measures to protect guests and team members. First and foremost, we ask that all visitors pre-book their tickets online in advance due to capacity restrictions,” said Katie Isaac, General Manager at SEA LIFE Melbourne.

“Our dedicated team of aquarists and keepers have continued to work onsite at SEA LIFE Melbourne during the closure period to care for the marine creatures and maintain the attraction.”

Guests at the aquarium will be able to see their favorite animals such as the king and gentoo penguins, a huge saltwater crocodile, thousands of fish, many types of shark and jellyfish. A number of new species have also joined the aquarium which guests will be able to discover.

“Since we last closed our doors, we have welcomed several new species including a huge Tasmanian king crab, a fascinating tasselled anglerfish and six dainty tree frogs! These unique creatures are all on display for guests to see,” continued Katie.
