Pen­guin ride launch

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

TRAVEL in a raft through a sub-Antarc­tic en­vi­ron­ment and get close to a spec­tac­u­lar colony of king and gen­too pen­guins at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquar­ium.

This first-of-its-kind pen­guin ex­hibit, due to open in Novem­ber, is in­spired by Mac­quarie Is­land – an Aus­tralian-owned is­land in the Pa­cific Ocean.

Ex­plor­ers (guests) will be sur­rounded by pen­guins and a flurry of snow, whistling winds and the stun­ning south­ern lights, be­fore ar­riv­ing at the Mac­quarie Is- land Ex­plorer Hut. Here they can ob­serve these crea­tures on land and un­der wa­ter and learn more about life on the re­mote is­land.

Mer­lin En­ter­tain­ment’s Rob Smith said: “The ride al­lows guests to make amaz­ing dis­cov­er­ies about life on Mac­quarie Is­land, the dif­fer­ent per­son­al­i­ties of cheeky gen­too and ma­jes­tic king pen­guins, and how we all can play a role in pro­tect­ing their fu­tures.” It of­fers a sen­sory and ed­u­ca­tional jour­ney. We are giv­ing away 40 prize packs in to­tal to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquar­ium’s Pen­guin Ex­pe­di­tion, in­clud­ing one pre­mium Mer­lin An­nual Pass for a fam­ily of four (2 adults + 2 chil­dren) and one glass bot­tom boat tour with shark feed for a fam­ily of four (2 adults + 2 chil­dren).
