One of the most popular experiences on the Sunshine Coast is a visit to one of the big entertainment parks or theme parks as they’re known.
There are rides for days at Aussie World on the Sunshine Coast with plenty of rides and attractions for the young and the young at heart. Plunge into the water play area known as Lead’n'Logs or thrill yourself on the Redback, the Giant Slide or the Wild Mouse Rollercoaster. Bump’em on the dodgems or play mini-golf. There’s great cafe for lunch or snacks with ice cream or drinks, and of course the obligatory souvenirs.
It’s also right next door to the leaning Ettamogah pub, it’s quirky shape and humorous memorabilia mean that it’s the most photographed pub in Australia - but has great steaks too.
You could also catch a showing of the Australian Outback Spectacular. An evening dinner show filled with drama and action featuring Australian animals and amazing stunt work - better yet, have your delicious dinner served to you while you watch.
Located at Buderim on the Sunshine Coast, The Ginger Factory is perfect for a morning or afternoon with the family - take a tour of the factory and grounds on the train named Moreton and enjoy some delicious treats while learning about the Super Bee and all about how the wonderful creations of The Ginger Factory are made.
At Mooloolaba you’ll find Underwater World, the Sunshine Coast’s version of Sea World, but with an underwater twist. Explore the fascinating underwater tubes that take you on a journey through the seafloor and see beautiful aquatic animals and creatures up close and personal. Super cute baby fur seals put on a great show and you can even go swimming with them! See majestic turtles or for the adventure lovers, there’s even a shark diving experience. See a coastal wreck, a vibrant coral reef and marvel at all of the beautiful creatures that live under the sea including glowing jellyfish and sea horses. The kids can explore a tidal touchpool and there’s so much more.
The theme parks and entertainment parks on the Sunshine Coast are definitely a big draw and they’re definitely experiences that you’re unlikely to forget.
