1. Cool off under the sea

Escape the summer heat and meet Sydney’s only Sub-Antarctic penguin colony at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Get up closer than ever before as you wander through the Macquarie Island-like exhibit and spot the regal King Penguins and wobbly Gentoos. You may even spot the newest member of the colony – a Gentoo chick!

2. Meet the Roos of Darling Harbour

Located in the heart of Sydney and right next to the aquarium, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is a great place to kick start your summer holidays and share memorable experiences with the kids! Along with a wide variety of fluffy, scaley and spikey Aussie animals, you will also find a beautiful mob of Kangaroo Island Kangaroos (a sub-species of the Western Grey Kangaroo). If you are lucky, you and the family may even get the chance to give them a pat!
