The Gold Coast means theme parks, and one of the most popular is Sea World.
The emphasis is on educational animal encounters at Sea World, with the interactive fun of dolphin adventures a particular highlight. Watch polar bears in action, go on a seal safari, see performing dolphins, and meet Bert and Ernie at Sesame Street Beach.
Sea World isn't just about wildlife, it's also the home of roller-coaster action on Jet Rescue. Ride the Bermuda Triangle, lose your lunch on the Corkscrew Rollercoaster, splash down on the Viking's Revenge, or take to the high seas on the Pirate Ship.

Sea World is 3 km (1.5 miles) north of Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. Buses run here from Brisbane, or it’s an easy 80 km (49 mile) drive following the Pacific Hwy south from Brisbane.
