Visitors will use their senses to explore the mysterious underwater world of dugongs in the new Dugong Island at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. The brand new experience allows guests to walk amongst an underwater shipwreck while admiring the only pair of dugongs on display in the world!
Did you know dugongs are closely related to elephants? Or that they can live to over 75 years old? And that long ago sailors once thought they were mermaids? These are just some of the fun facts visitors will learn in the new interactive Dugong Island experience. The renovation of Pig and Wuru’s new tank also includes a unique interactive display that allows kids and parents to hear, speak and see like a dugong. Also part of their new home is the world’s first dugong scent device that gives visitors a taste of the dugong smell.
What’s more, kids and adults alike will meet Pig and Wuru, the aquarium’s two rescued dugongs, and get to know the not-so-little orphans’ unique personalities and amazing life story.
SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium will also host fun, kid-friendly activities including a treasure hunt, daily interactive dugong talks, an educational craft event and more.
