From luminous coral to majestic jellyfish, the deep blue ocean is home to no shortage of natural masterpieces and some of its most luminous critters are now being celebrated with their own dedicated digital exhibition at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium.

Running until December, Submerged is an immersive all-ages exhibition that explores the fascinating depths of the bioluminescent underwater world where organisms produce and emit light using chemical reactions.

Expect breathtaking, hyperrealistic displays of colour and light depicting phenomena like glittering beaches scattered with spawning creatures and the tiny firefly squid that light up the deep waters off Japan. This is where science and nature show off their artistic side.

The interactive exhibition is taking centre stage while Sea Life's sprawling Oceanarium display is closed for renovations — though it's not the only underwater magic you can catch right now at the aquarium. Other displays let you get up close and personal to creatures like fish, turtles, penguins, jellyfish and sharks. Pinjarra the saltwater crocodile also remains on show for those who want to say g'day.

Access to Submerged is included in the cost of a general aquarium ticket.
