Click here to see our latest review of Underwater World!

SEA LIFE Underwater World Mooloolaba is located on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, just 1 hour north of Brisbane.

Over the ANZAC Day long weekend in 2014, my family and I decided to go to the Sunshine Coast and on the way to our final destination we planned a trip to SEA LIFEe Underwater World at Mooloolaba. We had not been for a year or so, and we wanted to visit again. Our children, now 3, 5 and 7 have always loved visiting and seeing all the ‘sea creatures’.

Hands On Interactive Underwater Fun

What you first notice about SEA LIFE Underwater World, once you enter, is the interactivity they’ve embedded throughout the aquarium. From the minute you walk in the door you get to touch and hold sea stars, sea cucumbers and other under water friends. If you have kids who like to touch – they’ll be just fine here! The expert staff are on hand to help you all enjoy the experience.

Our two eldest (5 & 7) enjoyed the activity books that encourage children to read the information and collect ‘stamps’ from stamping machines around the displays. It really become quite the adventure!

There are so many new and varied displays and tanks with any manner of underwater friends from the Seahorse Sanctuary, Pacific ReefCoastal Wreck, Ocean Walkthroughs, Billabongs, Freshwater Streams, Otter Creek, Seal Island (personal favourite), Jellyfish Kingdom and Crawly Creatures.

There are also numerous shows and talks by the expert staff – again, my favourite, the Seal Show!

You can book an ‘up close and personal’ adventure with the sharks or seals or book your next birthday party there!

Master 7 has put together a short video of his visit with his comments and suggestions:
