  • Escape from Pompeii - The Untold Roman Rescue

    Discover the untold story - All the world knows the legend of Pompeii. In 79 AD Mount Vesuvius erupted, spewing huge waves of volcanic ash over the Bay of Naples.

    One of Rome's greatest writers and scientists, Pliny the Elder, was stationed across the water from Pompeii at Misenum. Not just a great scholar - he was the military commander of Misenum's strategic naval base. He ordered a fleet of warships to rescue as many people as possible from the doomed city.

    So began one of the first recorded rescues by sea of civilians by a military force. Discover the untold story of Pompeii.

    Pompeii Comes to you -  The exhibition features more than a hundred objects from Pompeii and Herculaneum, the cities obliterated by the volcano, and from shipwrecks in the area. You'll be able to see some of the most famous objects from antiquity, first hand.

    This world-class exhibition reveals how the Roman navy came to dominate the Mediterranean, and how this control created a boom in maritime trade not seen again for a thousand years. 

    WHEN: 31 March to 30 August 2017

  • Penguin Expedition at Sealife Sydney

    The Penguin Expedition is an immersive experience allowing you to get up close and personal to a spectacular colony of King and Gentoo penguins during a sensory and educational sub-Antarctic boat journey!

    A world first-of-its kind penguin exhibit where guests can get up close and personal to a spectacular colony of King and Gentoo Penguins at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.

    A continuous chain of boats, each with a capacity of 8 guests, running all day every day carries guests on a journey along the river, through the heart of the colony.

    Immersive ride-through adventure

    Inspired by Macquarie Island – an Australian owned island that lies in the south-west Pacific Ocean – Penguin Expedition creates an explorer out of each and every guest as they travel in a raft through a rugged sub-Antarctic environment at a cool-but-comfortable six degrees Celsius.

    The voyage includes getting face-to-flipper in an awe-inspiring recreation of the penguins’ home, including magical flurries of snow, whistling winds and the stunning southern lights.

    This amazing new discovery aims to educate guests by highlighting the impacts of plastic pollution and habitat destruction affecting these majestic birds.

    Amazing discoveries await after disembarking thanks to the researchers at the Macquarie Island Explorer Hut. Guests will find out about SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s penguin breeding program and what they can do to help conserve Macquarie Island.
