With more than 500 sea creatures on display, the exhibit provides a self-theming space for events.
Day and Night on the Reef is the perfect backdrop for events.

Sea Life Sydney Aquarium has unveiled its newest display and event space, Day and Night on the Reef.

With more than 1.7 million litres of water and 500 sea creatures, Day and Night on the Reef is the largest Great Barrier Reef display in the world.

The display takes visitors on a journey through the reef, starting with the colourful coral garden through to a bio-luminescent ocean that glows under guests’ footsteps.

“After seven months of construction, this exciting new Day and Night on the Reef exhibit will provide our guests with an insight into the beauty of the reef from dusk until dawn,” said Sea Life Sydney Aquarium curator Chris Brown.

The space can host dinners for up to 110 guests.

The Day and Night on the Reef experience also features an interactive projection light show to recreate coral spawning – an annual synchronised spawning on the Great Barrier Reef which happens only at night.

At the end of the experience, guests will look back at the heart of the reef through a giant frozen wave. Before exiting the reef, guests can marvel at Turtle Beach, which uses high quality projections to showcase the life journey of turtles.

Day and Night on the Reef offers an ideal location for corporate events, with capacity for 110 guests for a seated dinner and over 300 for a cocktail event.

Events manager Kirsty Esson said there are endless event opportunities with this new venue.

“We’re thrilled to finally be able to unveil this new event space to our clients and guests,” she said.

“It is breathtaking watching our three turtles glide past as guests enjoying dinner. The team and I can’t wait to start offering new and innovative experiences to our clients”
