Sea World id the best theme park. Sea World Review

I am a fan of theme parks. I worked in them for a fair while and have been to them alot. People often ask, if you were going to do just one theme park, which one? I always say Sea World.

Why? It has the most to do for a varied age group. Many of the scary rides at Dreamworld are unsuitable for small kids or even less than adventurous adults. At Sea World they have found a nice balance of shows and rides for the small children as well as roller coasters and other hair raising contrptions for the teens.

With new attractions like Polar Bear Shores and Shark Bay, this park keeps on growing.

Adults are $60, kids age 4-13 are $38.

Some activities, like swimming with the dolphins and snorkelling with the sharks are extra.

Address: Sea World Drive, Main Beach

World Heritage Rainforest

You must make time to head up to either Binna Burra or O'Reilleys when you are on the Gold Coast. It truely is worth the drive to experience rainforest this pristine so close to a city of half a million people.

Take Binna Burra if you are really into bushwalking or head to O'Reilleys if you want a more tourist oriented feel but both are a good time.

You can also head across the Border Ranges into the world heritage Nightcap Ranges. Much less developed and abit further but more natural.

Directions: Lamington National Park
