Amazing theme parks are scattered all around Australia, and some of the very best are located in one place. Gold Coast, Queensland will knock you off your feet if you’re a fan of theme parks, and here are three that you shouldn’t miss for the world during your visit.


Dreamworld opened its doors all the way back in 1981, and it remains Australia’s biggest theme park to this day. It comes with 40 rides, animal exhibits, and other attractions divided into numerous themed lands, from DreamWorks Experience to Ocean Parade and Tiger Island.

Warner Bros. Movie World

Warner Bros. amusement parks are scattered all around the world, but the one on the Gold Coast was the first to open its doors in 1991. It’s still Australia’s only movie-related theme park, where employees wear costumes inspired by Warner Bros. and DC movies. The park hosts a parade each afternoon, but Australia’s tallest roller coaster DC Rivals HyperCoaster remains its most popular attraction.

Sea World

America’s Sea World became a popular franchise with locations around the globe, but this one has nothing to do with them—and that’s part of its appeal for true animal lovers. It offers fun rides, shows, and interactive tours, but it’s also well-known for its efforts to rehabilitate sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife.
