After visiting Aussie World on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia, my daughter and I slept and slept! I have only positive reports about Aussie World – very impressed.
I went on every ride with my daughter and by mid afternoon I was very tired – it hit me – so I started to slow down! Emma continued to go on rides and I watched and rested!
We stayed all day and I thought the mix of rides was perfect. There is a roller coaster, a brand new ride called the Redback and this would suit any dare-devil! There was a log ride, an indoor rock’n roll ride, dodgems, and rides just for little kids and rides just for big kids (and bigger kids).
We have been to Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, many times and Aussie World is like a mini Dreamworld. The difference between the two is Aussie World can be done in a day. It is about a 3 hour drive from Aussie World to Dreamworld.
I think one of the best things for kids is they get to go on their favourite ride as many times as they want (within reason) without the crazy lines and walking ten minutes to get there!
And a Birthday and Aussie World – that goes together perfectly. Birthday parties can be booked at Aussie World and I have had friends who have attended parties and said they were awesome.
The food was good too: you could buy hot dogs, burgers and chips and healthy wraps and sandwiches. My cappuccino was nice and it gave me the extra kick I needed! There is a bar area in a large wooden country shack for those who want a cold beer on a hot day!
Normal park entry is $29 for everyone and I thought this was reasonable and I heard other people also mention it being reasonable. It is $99 for a family of four. If you book online with RACQ a slight discount is granted. Aussie World is surrounded by other attractions, such as the famous Ettamogah Pub and a row of quirky shops and strawberry picking is close too (if in season)!
No reason for tourists to head straight to the Gold Coast as the Sunshine Coast is also home to Steve Irwin’s Australia Zoo and some beautiful beaches!
