Not too big. Shark gallery excellent. Dolphin show good. Stingray pool great. Polar bears poor, penguin palace ! (Not a palace sadly for them). Overall a good day out & worth a second half day

We visited in winter and some of the animals were either not there or not very active. We were disappointed we couldn't see the Polar Bears. The aquariums are amazing. The shows are fun. We loved that there were no crowds! Bring your own food unless you're wealthy.

Although the dolphin shows are always entertaining we spent most of our time watching and playing with the animals. Polar Bear exhibit was fun and amusing as were the penguins. We probably spent at least an hour playing with the rays. Drawbacks include the 1 day entry prices if you are not buying multi-day passes to multiple parks, and the... More

You don't need a full day here, we did the combined ticket with whale watching for $110 which we all thought was great value. Did both in the one day. Lots of fun. Had lunch at the bistro, very expensive and the only gluten free option were nachos that were terrible, a bag of Doritos heated up, not worth it.... More

All very similar to other zoos/aquariums in Australia - until we reached the dolphin show- do not miss it, it's a true asset to sea world and without it I would have rated our day as average. All the animals are wonderful and it would have been a better day with kids I think, especially younger ones who can't enjoy... More

We bought the one year ticket deal to all three attractions there: Sea World, Wet'n'Wild and Movie World, to the all family. It was the cheapest way to visit the three attractions in four – five days. We arrived very early to the Sea World and we walked there all day long (until it was about to be closed) and... More

Loved SeaWorld. The polar bears are so amazing to see, get there early and they are just waking up so they move around a bit. There is so many angles you can see them. The shows are a must see, all ages will love these. Rides are great. You do get absolutely drenched on the Storm. Check out the photos... More

My three children and I went on the last Friday of the Australian school holidays and the queue to get in was enormous when we got there. The staff were fantastic and moved everyone through very quickly. A ride on the monorail was a good way to get an overview of the park. We didn't attend any of the shows.... More

Very good dolphin show! Enjoyed my day there looking at all the animals and had a blast on the cool rides! Probably one of the best sea worlds I have gone to.

We went there on a hot day. Prefect timing to be there. Had so much fun with a large group of friends. We all enjoyed it very much.
