Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience at the Melbourne Sealife Aquarium

The Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium opened Finding Dory and Friends: The Experience a few months ago. Kate and her Aquarium fans had a look through the exhibition last week and loved exploring the different setups.


Throughout the interactive journey, a Pipe Pals trail will guide and surprise little ones with tales of amazing underwater animals, leading you into Dory’s Reef. Experience fun activities including Ridin’ the EAC with Crush, Nemo’s Anemone Challenge and using your own echo locator in Bailey’s Maze.


Once you have explored the exhibition, make sure you continue a tour around the aquarium and have the kids touch beautiful starfish and shark eggs as part of the Rockpools and Mangroves experience, let their drawing come to life with the Art Aquarium experience, see some giant sting rays in the Mermaid's Garden, experience daily feeds and talks, see the penguins, see the 6.5 metre long salt water crocodile and lots more!
