Australia Day at Aussie World
Where is it: On the highway at Palmview, Sunshine Coast, just over an hours' drive north of Brisbane.
What's it all about: A fun little theme park (great for the smaller kids!) and a really enjoyable Australia Day program!
How can I join in: Head up the highway any day of the year (except Christmas and ANZAC days) to enjoy a fun day out at Aussie World, or join in on their Aussie Day celebrations on January 26!
Tell me more: A really fun alternative to the Gold Coast theme parks, Aussie World ticks all the boxes when looking for a fun day out with the little kids! It has some great rides, a really relaxed+ and fun atmosphere and both wet and dry play areas - add to that some great food options and you will be sure to have a fun day out! And keep an eye out for their special low season deals which are a great option for taking the little kids along!
The Aussie Day Activities kick off early with an 8am brekky followed by plenty of fun Aussie Day activities! The Dunny Races are a highlight, but the kids loved the egg and spoon and sack races! And we don't know why, but it seems as though you cannot have any sort of Australia Day celebration without have a competition that involves throwing something!? Here at Aussie World, they've gone with a mullet over the more traditional thong. If you still haven’t had enough of all of the running, pulling, jumping and throwing, continue the festivities with live music on until late! Lots of silly fun!
Amenities: Full amenities including food and drink options. Note that you can't take your own food in, but contact Aussie World for further info! 👍👍👍

Parking: A good sized (and free) carpark 👍👍👍👍
Access: Easy access to all areas! 👍👍👍👍
Entertainment: The Aussie Day events are really fun! And the park itself has a great selection of rides! 👍👍👍👍
