For the love of the sea and all that it has, I went for a special experience. Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is located on the banks of the Yarra River, under the King Street Bridge. It is situated beside Flinders Street Viaduct and extends till this Street. The aquarium is owned by the Merlin entertainment that handles the upbringing of around 10,000 aquatic animals of 550 species. The aquarium is a beautiful place for people who love to see these animals flourishing in a place built around the adaptability of their natural habitats.

Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is an Antarctic Aquarium located at Central Business District in Central Melbourne, Australia. It is not only an aquarium but is like a Sea Life Centre and a major attraction. Australia is a place well-known for its natural aquatic flora and fauna such as coral reefs. Being nearer to Antarctica, I could see a large number of penguins, that this aquarium houses, making the whole ambience magnetic. These penguins are special and are the best-looking species one can ever find. Natural ice placed there to maintain the native climate for these special creatures adds to the effect of Antarctica making the whole place serene.

This aquarium is the first of its kind in the world and has a capacity of 2,200,000 litres. The aquarium is designed and built 7 m beneath the surface and is built on the concept of ‘Oceanarium in the round’. The visiting corridors in the centre of this round aquarium were spectacular with the aquatic life swimming all around me.
