Search for sunken treasure in a sparkling underwater city filled with dive bars, fascinating sea creatures and Sydney’s hottest young artists.

The underwater tunnels of SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium open after-hours for limited-edition 18+ events run by non-profit arts company The Festivalists. Experience some of the best emerging local artists against a magnificent backdrop of sharks, stingrays and sea jellies.

Take on the role of a buccaneer as you are challenged to search for sunken treasure throughout the Aquarium’s mysterious underwater corridors and caverns, home to astonishing marine life from dugongs and sawfish to penguins and seahorses. Take selfies with Bitches of the Sea, learn something untrue about Penguins and find Quint’s lost undersea booty.

Grab a drink at the pop up bars serving Little Creatures beers or SKYY Vodka cocktails, take selfies with Grey Nurse sharks, chat with marine biologists or simply get a head start on the weekend. SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is one of Sydney’s most surprising, awe-inspiring sites. HIJINKS is a unique opportunity for local residents to reclaim the aquarium as their own over the course of a wild and eventful evening.

Thursday September 11th at 6.30pm – 9.30pm at the Sydney Aquarium.
