Do you live in Melbourne – or are you planning a visit there over the Christmas holidays? If so, we have the inside scoop on a new and exciting experience that you must try while school is out.

From 20 December, 2014 to 27 January, 2015, there is an all-new Art Aquarium making a splash at SEA LIFE Melbourne AquariumCrayola has partnered with SEA LIFE Melbourne for an innovative exhibition that combines two things that know no limits – a child’s imagination and the mysterious ocean.

How exactly does an art aquarium work you may ask? Well here’s the short answer: simply colour in an underwater creature and then watch it come to life as it is magically released into SEA LIFE Melbourne’s huge nine-metre virtual aquarium. And the fun doesn’t stop there – you can interact with your creatures as they move around like a real sea animal in a virtual underwater experience.

Existing in a phase she affectionately coins ‘monotonous chaos’, this stay-at-home-mum revels in moonlighting as a writer and feeling like a grown up every once in a while. A background in teaching and psychology, she entered parenthood confident she was up for the challenge, but now eats humble pie on a daily basis.
