Seahorse Nursery Tour Launches April School Holidays

Males Take The Reigns In The All-New Seahorse Nursery Tour!

Males that give birth, magical underwater courtship dances and tiny seahorse fry are just some of the weird and wonderful things visitors will discover at Melbourne Aquarium’s latest experience, Seahorse Nursery.

 

Everyday throughout the school holidays, visitors will have the exclusive opportunity to tour behind-the-scenes of Melbourne Aquarium’s all-new Seahorse Pier exhibit, home to the internationally-recognised Weedy Seadragon breeding program and dedicated Seahorse breeding facility.

 

Journey through the paternity ward where hundreds of tiny baby seahorses and seadragons are on display—don’t miss your chance to learn all there is to know about secret underwater world of these enchanting creatures and even help feed our precious babies with live shrimp!

 

Seahorse Pier is home to more than 100 members of the Syngnathid family, including seadragons, pipefish, razorfish and Victoria’s marine emblem, the beautiful Weedy seadragon.

 

From the all-new Seahorse Nursery tour and Seahorse Discovery Zone, to the daily interactive presentations, animal feeds and heaps of exciting seahorse art & craft activities, Melbourne Aquarium has something for the whole family to enjoy throughout the Easter School Holidays.
