SEA LIFE Sydney is reinventing the rockpool!

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has reinvented its popular indoor rockpool and is celebrating by giving one young sea life enthusiast the chance to win a rockpool adventure with Robbie the Rockpool Expert.

Unveiled in time for the upcoming spring school holidays, the former tropical Rockpool is now entirely inspired by Sydney’s rockpool scene with local creatures and biofacts. Visitors can get up close and personal to Sydney starfish and sea urchins while comparing pieces of natural life such as sea anemones and shark teeth. They can also inspect the rockpool’s carefully carved rock work which is filled with temperate sea water directly sourced from the harbour beneath the aquarium.

“Reinventing the rockpool to be as local as possible allows us to continuously adjust the environment so that there is always something new for visitors to discover and learn about Sydney’s amazing rock pools. It also gives young visitors a better understanding and appreciation of the incredible organisms that they are likely to encounter at their local beaches.”
