Reinventing the rockpool!

September 22, 2020 Attraction No Comments Email Email

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium has reinvented its popular indoor rockpool and is celebrating by giving one young sea life enthusiast the chance to win a rockpool adventure with Robbie the Rockpool Expert.

Unveiled in time for the upcoming spring school holidays, the former tropical Rockpool is now entirely inspired by Sydney’s rockpool scene with local creatures and biofacts.

Visitors can get up close and personal to Sydney starfish and sea urchins while comparing pieces of natural life such as sea anemones and shark teeth. They can also inspect the rockpool’s carefully carved rock work which is filled with temperate sea water directly sourced from the harbour beneath the aquarium.

“Reinventing the rockpool to be as local as possible allows us to continuously adjust the environment so that there is always something new for visitors to discover and learn about Sydney’s amazing rock pools,” Robbie McCracken, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium Aquarist and Rockpool Expert said.

“It also gives young visitors a better understanding and appreciation of the incredible organisms that they are likely to encounter at their local beaches.”

To celebrate the reinvented rockpool, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is giving one mini explorer the chance to discover Sydney’s underwater playgrounds by winning an adventure with Robbie the Rockpool Expert.

With family and friends by their side, the lucky winner will meet Robbie at a Sydney beach where they will uncover hidden tidal pool homes and learn about the array of sea life residing within.

To be in the running, tell us in 25 words or less what makes you the best rockpool explorer. Entries can be submitted on Facebook or via our website clicking here.

Be quick! The competition closes 25 September 2020. For full terms and conditions, visit
