Your Experience

Experience animal conservation in action at Manly Sea Life Sanctuary and take and active part in the rescue, breed and protect programme.

Manly Sea Life Sanctuary is passionate about rescue – nursing animals back to health and releasing them back into the wild; they successfully breed the incredible species found in the waters around Sydney Harbour and the Northern Beaches and protect the local habitats that they live in. Animals that are not fit to be sent back into the wild stay at the sanctuary.

Check out the Penguin Cove, where you can discover the colony of Manly’s iconic Little Penguins and their importance to the shores of Manly. Join in the interactive talks and feeding demonstrations and be charmed by ‘Sea Biscuit’, the rescued Green Sea Turtle, or amazed by the huge sharks and stingrays. See Murdoch and Freckles, two captive bred Grey Nurse Sharks, who have been brought together to continue the successful breeding program.

Meet the team and journey through the waters as you learn how you can protect the marine environment. Get hands-on and discover more about the local environment at the interactive rock pool, where you can tough a shark egg or hold a crab.
