Sea Life New Year's Eve Extravaganza
See in the new year surrounded by marine creatures at this after-dark party at the aquarium.
Make a splash this New Year's Eve — or watch fish, penguins and plenty of other marine creatures literally splash about. To mark 2018 becoming 2019, Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium is hosting a decadent after-dark NYE shindig.
Running from 8pm–1am on Monday, December 31, the Sea Life New Year's Eve Extravaganza combines looking at everything from stingrays to crocodiles, a spread of food and booze, plus a party vibe. You'll also be right on the Yarra, and in prime firework-viewing position.
Three options are available and, being the biggest night of the year, they don't come cheap — but if you see out 2018 surrounded by seahorses, you'll certainly remember it. Everyone will be tucking into Coffin Bay oysters, plus stations dedicated to antipasto, cheeses of the world and sweets; however just what kind of drinks you'll be downing depends on your ticket.
Pay $179 for basic wines, beers, cider, juice and soft drinks; $229 for a broader selection of wines and beers, plus four spirit tokens; and $289 for a platinum range of booze, as well as standard spirits ticket. The latter also gets you access to the balcony overlooking the river.
