Explore Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary

Experience animal welfare in action at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and take an active part in our rescue, breed and protect program.

We are passionate about rescue - nursing animals back to health and releasing them back to the wild; we successfully breed species found in the waters around Sydney Harbour and the Northern Beaches; and protect the local habitats that they live in. Animals we rescue that are not fit to be sent back to the wild stay here at the Sanctuary where they help us educate the public.

Shark Harbour

Shark Harbour is our showpiece exhibit, and home to a weird and wonderful variety of marine creatures, in addition to our 8 stunning Grey Nurse Sharks!
