Good to know:

Your kids can be wildlife heroes! Please “bring 3 for the sea” 

Bring 3 recyclable plastic bottles with you to AQWA. We will place them in with our containers for change and the 10c collected will help the AQWA foundation; reduce plastics in the ocean, rescue and rehabilitate injured marine turtles and protect marine habitats.


*Parents are expected to stay with their child during the class. Younger siblings are able to attend as long as they are under 2 years and do not participate in the course activities. 

*AQWA’s Sea School is created by our qualified Marine Biologist who has over 15 years’ experience in creating public education programs that generate wonder and inspire respect for our oceans. Previously run as the term-long “Wonder Kids Workshop”, the new Sea School now allows parents to book individual classes, rather than a whole term at a time.

*All sessions have learning links to kindy and pre-primary curriculums, include fundamental movement skills and develop the fine motor control skills that will be used for writing. 

*Most importantly, we will help your child approach learning with curiosity – kids just love our SEA SCHOOL! 

*AQWA is open 9am-4pm and has over 40 exhibits to discover, plus the kids favourite ARTquarium and our yummy Cafe to stop at for lunch!
