Experience one of the Sunshine Coast's best attractions.

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.

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.
