The visit to the aquarium, wild life zoo and Sydney tower brought us back to a few years ago before the kids were born. Everything seems familiar but it was a brand new and unforgettable experience for the family.

SEA LIFE so-so, WILD LIFE wonderful

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium did have a really nice penguin excursion--a little boat ride (bring your jacket!) through a refrigerated penguinarium where the king penguins are stars of the show. It was a lot of fun watching them mug for the visitors while the keepers were trying to get them to step on a scale. The penguins alone were worth about half of the admission price, but think hard about whether you really want to spend the other half just to see them. The rest of the aquarium is the sort of stuff you could see anywhere (with the possible exception of rescued dugong Pig). But WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo was worth every penny. They have every Australian animal you can think of, and the animals are very easy to view and photograph. (Only the Tazzie devil was hiding.) Adults who are quiet and well-behaved may get invited behind the scenes for an even closer look. I had an amazing experience with some wallabies which cost me nothing extra. Although (or possibly because) it is small, WILD LIFE gives you a better look at Australia's wild life than the much posher Toranga Zoo across the harbour.
