Brisbane is located close to some of the best theme parks in Australia. Below are the biggest, most happening and most popular theme parks of Australia and all of them are only within an hour drive from Brisbane city.
Aussie World – Sunshine Coast
Aussie World offers over 30 rides. This theme park is not for thrill seekers but it a great day out for smaller children and those who aren’t a fan of heights. After you’ve spent the day on rides, head next door to the iconic Ettamogah Pub for a delicious dinner.
Dreamworld – Gold Coast
Dreamworld is home to some of the fastest and highest roller coasters and rides in Australia. If you love adrenaline, this is the place for you. Experience the Giant Drop, Claw, Wipe out, Cyclone and Tower of Terror. You will not be disappointed. For the little kids there is Wiggle World, petting zoo, tiger and lion show and plenty more.
Whitewater World – Gold Coast
Next door to Dreamworld is Whitewater World, a great water park for the whole family. Experience the wedgie, green room, super tubes and Wiggle bay.
SeaWorld – Gold Coast
See hundreds of marine life and experience some great rides at SeaWorld. Do not miss the dolphin, polar bear or shark shows, they are a must sea! You can even go on helicopter rides and whale watching trips with SeaWorld as well.
Movie World – Gold Coast
This is where everyone is a star! Watch the crazy stunt shows, music spectaculars and ride the crazy rides. We suggest the Superman Escape ride and Green Lantern roller coaster. Also make sure you check out some of the movie themed shops.
This is the ultimate water park for kids and adults. Ride the slides all day and float back and watch a movie at night in the wave pool. It’s a great day out.
