Underwater World SEA LIFE Mooloolaba

Located on the Sunshine Coast, just 1 hour north of Brisbane is Underwater World SEA LIFE Mooloolaba. This multi award winning tourist attraction features 11 different zones, thousands of marine and freshwater animals, numerous daily animal presentations and a chance to experience sharks up close.

Underwater World SEA LIFE Mooloolaba gives you the opportunity to explore and interact with different marine life and freshwater animals. Why not touch a Sea Star or Sea Cucumber in the Tidal Touch Pool whist listening to incredible marine life stories or perhaps see the Estuarine Stone fish up close and personal, the world's most venomous fish. As part of a rescue, rehabilitation and release program, Underwater World SEA LIFE Mooloolaba is also accommodating some of Australia's recovering sea turtles at Turtle Temple.

A favourite for all ages is Seal Island, an opportunity to watch Australian Sea Lions and Fur Seals & New Zealand Fur Seals at play. For the more adventurous, come face to face with sharks, stingrays and fish in the 80 metre Ocean Walk Through or perhaps have a close diving encounter with Shark Dive Xtreme (booked and payable direct).
