Seal Show

Seal Show

Need to know


We’re committed to keeping you, our staff and our animals safe - but this does mean some changes to the usual experience.

While we can't wait for you to dive in to watch our Seals for the Wild presentation, we are carefully monitoring guest capacity in our seal theatre and only allowing a maximum of 250 guests per show. This allows for safe social distancing with seating 1.5m apart. 

NOTE: The theatre gates will be closed once seating is at capacity around social distancing protocols, we thank you for your understanding.

Read more about how we're keeping you safe.

  • FREE with Zoo entry 
  • 11am and 2pm daily
    • Except for Fridays during school term where the 2pm Seal Show does not run. During school holidays the Friday 2pm Seal Show returns. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you for your understanding
    • With the addition of a 1pm show during school holidays (commencing from Saturday 26 December 2020)

What to expect

Watch our graceful seals catch fish, climb and dive in this dynamic display. You’ll see species such as the Australian sea lion, Californian sea lion, and New Zealand fur seal show off their natural abilities while you learn about their marine environment.
