If your only real-life experience of jellyfish is trying not to tread on them at the beach, Sea Life Melbourne’s immersive new exhibit will likely surprise and delight.
From December 12 Ocean Invaders will open across three rooms of the aquarium, featuring exotic jellyfish species, lighting effects and plenty of factoids about the spineless sea creatures.
Visitors will come face to face with thousands of colourful jellies at the permanent exhibit, which includes a jellyfish-filled cylindrical tank you can crawl through and a luminous spherical tank, too.
In The Jelly Lab you can learn about jellyfish’s remarkable life cycles, plus kids can design their own digital jellyfish that will be projected on the wall.
Ocean Invaders is included with admission to aquarium, so you’ll also get to meet Mitchell the grey nurse shark, Pinjarra the saltwater croc, the colony of king and gentoo penguins and much more.
