We were all incredibly excited to attend the launch of the Penguin Expedition, held at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, on Saturday 17th December, 8am – 11am. Our entire family was invited along to take part in the new experience, a boat ride through an icy arctic adventure, complete with real penguins! The older kids (Henry, 5 and Oscar, 3) found it particularly fun, while Scarlett, 1, still watched with mesmerised eyes at all the furry creatures.

Kids were gifted with gorgeous Sea Life bags, penguin toys and pencil cases when we first got there, and each also got a fantastic penguin pop-cake after the ride (probably the highlight for all!). Families were also treated to a deluxe breakfast at the end of the experience which topped the day off.

The new Penguin Expedition is now open to the public at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium, details below. Give it a go! We promise your kids will love it as much as ours did.
