Plunge into the azure waters off Sydney’s harbour at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Encased in a shark-proof cage, you’ll come face-to-fin with these majestic predators. Your heart will race as a Grey Nurse Shark glides past, along with giant stingrays, Port Jackson Sharks and Wobbegong Sharks – all without a cage! Researchers, take notes: this heart-stopping encounter reveals the primal rhythm of survival.
