What can you expect from the only zoological park in NSW that exhibits dolphins? Nothing but pure underwater fun, of course!
The zoological park at the Coffs Harbour is called the Dolphin Marine Magic. Catch a delightful bunch of dolphins, seals, and other animals such as little penguins. A uniquely educational and practical experience will teach you how to change your habits in order to conserve the marine environment. The park was originally built as a rescue and rehabilitation center after all.
Another opportunity that the park offers is the chance to swim with a dolphin or to be a “Trainer for a Day”. Feeding the penguins and other animals are also popular with the previous guests.
Whether you want to participate in the show or to relax on the sidelines, this park aims to let you be touched by magic!

Get a Park Pass
Watching The Little Mermaid and shows alike ignited my fascination for dolphins that dates back since I was a child. I perceive dolphins as warm and graceful creatures that seek to delight its friends. They swim beautifully with their companions over the pristine waters. I can only fantasize about hugging one. So, imagine my amusement when I learned about a park that is designed to turn my dreams into a reality!
If you have a long standing admiration for dolphins (I know I do), you can greatly enjoy a pass to the Dolphin Marine Magic! Your pass not only includes an entry to the park but it also allows you to see the Marine Magic Presentation.
This entertaining show allows you to play with the dolphins before and after the presentation. It also allows you to receive special kisses from the trained dolphins and seals. Be sure to arrive early to secure this free feature! And if that is not enough, a selected few will be chosen for special animal interactions during the show.
