Full Day Pass:

Manly is lucky enough to be a breeding habitat for Little Penguins, and is one of the last colonies on the mainland of Australia! The local population of Little Penguins is around 60 breeding pairs, and they come ashore to nest every night between July and February. Manly's Little Penguin colony has been listed as an endangered population, and the local area has been declared a critical habitat for the population.   '

Experience animal conservation in action at Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and take an active part in our rescue, breed and protect program. We successfully breed some of our incredible local species; we are passionate about rescue, nursing animals back to health and releasing them back into the wild; and we endeavor to protect their natural habitats.
Check out the BRAND NEW Penguin Cove where you can discover our own colony of Manly’s iconic Little Penguins and their importance to the shores of Manly. Join in our interactive talks and feeding demonstrations and be charmed by ‘Sea Biscuit’, our rescued Green Sea Turtle, or amazed by our huge sharks and stingrays.

"We booked a Blue Mountains tour with Travel Freedom and it was awesome! It was the cheapest deal we could find, but the tour was all class. We loved Wentworth falls! Thanks Travel Freedom for suggesting the tour and you’re great service…it is the best memory from our 3 days in Sydney!"

Thomas Rogers (UK)

"I found Travel Freedom on Google and they seemed cheap so I booked a Hunter Valley tour for my mother and myself. It was a good day of wine tasting and a beautiful region. Travel Freedom were good and their communication was easy and fast. I recommend them to any other travellers."
