Theme Parks on the Gold Coast

No family holiday to the Gold Coast is complete without a visit to one (or all!) of the theme parks that the Coast is famous for. There’s something for every member of the family, no matter what their age!  We sent our mates from Ipswich with their kids to check out the parks.


Warner Bros. Movie World

If you’re into thrill-seeking rides, look no further than Movie World! It’s the home of the HyperCoaster, the tallest, fastest and longest roller-coaster in the whole southern hemisphere. There’s plenty of rides for the older kids and adults who like to get their adrenaline pumping, as well as great stunt shows and Looney Tunes for the kids.


Sea World

This theme park combines rides and attractions with marine animals, and is always a hit with young and old alike. There’s something for everyone, and you can even get up close with some of the animals! With a water park inside, and informative shows and displays, the kids will have a lot of fun while they learn. You might learn something new too!



Next door to Movie World, this water-based theme park is full of awesome slides and thrill-rides. There’s also water parks for the kiddies to play in, so every member of the family will find something fun to do. This is one the best places to come and have fun in Summer.



Dreamworld probably has the best mix of thrill-seeking and family-friendly rides and attractions, so if you only have time to stop at one theme park on holiday, make it this one. Ride the infamous Giant Drop or Tower of Terror, or take the young kids to Wiggles World. There’s also Tiger Island for those who want to see the cute animals up close.


WhiteWater World

WhiteWater World is next to Dreamworld, and you can buy entry to the two parks in one ticket. The water is kept at a comfortable warm temperature, so you can enjoy the park all year long. There’s plenty of fun to be had for the whole family, thanks to the array of rides and attractions.


If you’re coming to the Gold Coast for your next holiday, don’t miss out on exploring some of these amazing theme parks. You’ll find something for every family member to enjoy, no matter which park you visit.
