The Gold Coast is the playground of the East Coast, with endless beaches, warm sun, plenty of bars and nightclubs, and of course, a wide array of theme parks. Unleash your inner child as you swing and swoon high above the skies on one of the many roller coasters available here. The Gold Coast has the largest collection of theme parks in the whole country, so if you’re looking for an adrenaline hit, head to the Sunshine State as soon as possible.
Of course, you might land and find yourself with no idea where to head and what to do. But that’s where our super handy guide to the Gold Coast’s theme parks comes in. Enjoy.
This place is called Dreamworld for a reason. It’s the largest theme park in Australia and visiting it is like landing in a dream itself. With multiple worlds here, you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to all four corners of the earth, without ever leaving the Queensland tarmac. Soar (and scream) high above the sky on The Tower of Terror, one of the tallest thrill rides in the world before heading on the ‘Australian Wildlife Experience’, where you can spot over 500 different species of native Australian wildlife. Of course, there are plenty of other roller coasters here too, like The Claw and Giant Drop – it’s an adrenaline junkies playground.
