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 about to be celebrated with their own dedicated digital exhibition when Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium unveils its latest multi-sensory attraction: Submerged.

The aquarium's debut outing into the digital realm, Submerged will run from mid-February until December, taking centre stage while Sea Life's sprawling Oceanarium display is undergoing renovations.

The immersive all-ages exhibition invites you to explore 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.

The aquarium's offering will look a little different in 2023 thanks to the Oceanarium's upgrade works and closure, though this striking interactive exhibition will be here to offer a big dose of ocean magic in its place.

Alongside Submerged, you'll also be able to catch numerous other displays and installations, starring creatures like fish, turtles, penguins, jellyfish and sharks. Pinjarra the saltwater crocodile will also remain on show for those who want to say g'day.

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

Submerged will be on show at Sea Life Melbourne Aquarium from mid-February until December. You can find out more and grab tickets over at the website.
