Manly Sealife Sanctuary

  • About

At Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary you can check out Penguin Cove where you will discover their colony of Manly’s iconic Little Penguins and their importance to the shores of Manly. Join in on interactive talks and feeding demonstrations. Plus, be charmed by ‘Myrtle’, one of Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary’s rescued Green Sea Turtles, and be amazed by our huge sharks and stingrays. See Murdoch and Freckles, two captive bred Grey Nurse Sharks, who have been brought together to continue our successful breeding program.

Guests will also experience animal conservation in action at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and take an active part in our rescue, breed and protect program. We successfully breed some of our incredible local species; we are passionate about rescue, nursing animals back to health and releasing them back into the wild; and we endeavour to protect their natural habitats.

Located just 200m from Manly Wharf, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary will inspire you to become a passionate protector of marine animals.
