After months of restrictions, Sea Life Melbourne — and its million-dollar jellyfish exhibition recommenced operations earlier this month, giving Victorians a new way to spend their free time.
Offering 15 percent off online tickets to celebrate their return, guests can once again descend into the beauty of the ocean, and most importantly, deep dive into the mysteriously fascinating world of jellyfish at the Aquarium’s Ocean Invaders exhibit.
Launching back December, this permanent $1.5 million exhibition features a number of new jellyfish species never before seen at the Aquarium and is definitely worth putting on the bucket list.
Spread out over 300 square metres with three different interactive zones, you can expect to see thousands of jellyfish from a range of species – from the upside-down jellyfish (cassiopea andromeda), blue blubber jellyfish (catostylus mosaicus), to even the lion’s mane jellyfish (cyanea capillata) and sea nettles (chrysaora melanaster).
Alongside the enormous displays of these beautiful ocean enigmas, you’ll also find interactive activities, incredible lighting installations and educational facts about the gelatinous sea creatures. You can even watch them being cared for by Sea Life’s ocean experts and crawl through a cylindrical tank surrounded by them.
In line with the Victorian Government’s easing of COVID-19 restrictions, the Aquarium has introduced a range of new health and safety measures that seek to reduce the risk associated with the presence of COVID-19.
Booking are essential for all guests – including Annual Pass members – and the daily ticketed capacity has been severely reduced to allow for social distancing and the best possible guest experience. Guests will also be required to give their contact details to ensure contact tracing may be conducted if necessary.
