SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast keen to share Penguin Encounter Experience following reopening
In line with the Queensland Government’s move to Stage Two restrictions, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast has advised of its reopening to the public on Thursday 4th June 2020 with additional health and safety measures in place to ensure the wellbeing of guests, team members and animals including the colony of Little Blue Penguins.
With the Queensland school holidays fast approaching, SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast General Manager, Quinn Clarke advises “we are excited to welcome guests back to SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast this Thursday. We have implemented a number of health and safety measures that seek to reduce the risks associated with the presence of COVID-19. The whole team is thrilled for visitors to return and we ask that all guests pre-book their tickets online in advance so we can carefully manage our capacity.”
SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is moving forward with a cashless approach and is requesting that visitors pre-book their tickets online to guarantee entry. The guest capacity has been reduced to allow for social distancing and the best possible guest experience. Enhanced cleaning measures have been introduced throughout the day to disinfect high-frequency touch points. Social distancing controls are in place for queues and viewing areas. All measures are in line with government advice and the requirements of local health authorities.
Clarke added “our animal care team has continued to work during the closure period to feed and care for all of the resident sea creatures. Our team is looking forward to reopening and resuming the daily interactions with guests. That said, we have thoroughly enjoyed sharing our virtual aquarium with people of all ages across the Sunshine Coast, Queensland and the rest of Australia, through our live streams and online content over the past couple of months.
“The most popular live streams featured SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast’s Little Blue Penguins, who arrived at the aquarium late last year as part of the launch of a new exhibit. The new zone was only open to the public for a few months before the aquarium temporarily closed so it’s a great reason for locals and visitors to the Sunshine Coast to visit.”
In addition to visiting the penguins through the aquarium, visitors can now step inside the Little Blue Penguins’ habitat for a Penguin Encounter! This experience allows visitors to hand feed the penguins, go on a behind the scenes tour and discover how the team cares for the colony. Places are limited, so early booking is advised.
To celebrate the reopening, guests can take advantage of a 20% discount on admission tickets and the Penguin Encounter experience.
SEA LIFE Sunshine Coast is also home to numerous species of sharks, thousands of colourful tropical fish, incredible live coral and a delightful colony of seals that can be viewed in action in the Seal Presentation, which is included in the admission price.

All safety measures are in line with COVID-19 government advice and the requirements of local health authorities with the full list of health and safety measures can be found at www.sealifesunshinecoast.com.au/updates
