Project Overview

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium engaged AAT to assist with aquarium specialist works for the Penguin Island exhibit and expedition ride. The attraction allows guest to view the captivating colony of penguins from multiple viewing points throughout the expedition. The acrylic windows supplied and installed by AAT includes a 360 degree viewing cylinder, domes and curves.

The uninterrupted views of the Gentoo and King penguins living in their new habitat assist the aquarium with educating visitors on topics such as plastic pollution, climate change and declining fish stock.
