Day and Night on the Reef

Experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium’s brand new exhibit, Day and Night on the Reef. Set entirely on the reef as it transitions through night to day, it is the largest Great Barrier Reef exhibit in the world.

The new exhibit uses state of the art technology to deliver a totally unique, interactive experience. Walk across bioluminescent beaches, journey through jellyfish garden and witness the phenomenon of coral spawning on the glowing night time reef.

As the sun rises, travel through the heart of a busy and brightly coloured day time reef to meet our new marine turtles. In an interactive show, encounter a nesting turtle on an indoor beach and help guide baby hatchlings safely into the seas. Along the way you’ll meet marine turtles, reef sharks and saw fish, as well as over 500 other beautiful sea creatures and tropical fish. Guests will also learn about the changes we can make to protect Australia’s greatest natural wonder.
