Situated in picturesque Manly Cove, just moments from Manly town centre and within close proximity to world-class beaches, restaurants and hotels, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary offers a unique function venue surrounded by the wonders of the ocean.

Functions and Events with a Difference!

Set your event or function around themed exhibits where your guests can gaze in awe at the incredible marine animals that call these environments home.

Let your guests roam the Shark Tunnel where they can get up close to our colony of huge Grey Nurse Sharks, enjoy the expansive panoramas of the upper level Tropical Reef exhibit with views across Manly Cove towards the world famous Sydney Harbour Heads, or set your event or function on the middle level amongst the beautiful displays that make up Underwater Sydney area and the Great Barrier Reef tank.

Captivate your guests in our underwater worlds, where they can journey beneath the ocean without getting their feet wet, for a fish-eye view of sharks, rays and thousand of fish from Australia's oceans.

With extensive parking in the local area, superb public transport links (a 1 minute walk from the Manly ferry wharf), our versatile all-weather venue can provide a perfect backdrop for any event, launch or celebration.
