Whether it's seeing a jet ski go flying through the air or watching penguins waddle and swim through a landscape that looks just like Antarctica, Sea World Gold Coast offers a thrilling sense of adventure and wonder. This wildly popular Queensland park is a place to see dolphins, rays, sharks, polar bears, and seals, while also enjoying some family entertainment on Nickelodeon-themed carnival rides and roller coasters, such as Viking's Revenge and the Bermuda Triangle.
When exploring the wildlife section of the park, you can learn about the mysterious animals that dwell in the world's deepest parts of the ocean, or see sharks from the safety of an underwater viewing area. You'll also find information on the park's rehab programs for injured seabirds and seals, and get fascinating insight on everything from turtles to sea urchins, jellyfish, and crabs. Although not offered by Viator, seal safaris (from $64.99), a variety of dolphin encounters (from $124.99), and shark feedings (from $194.99) are available for additional purchase; advance reservations are required.
Sea World Gold Coast is located a 20-minute drive north of Surfers Paradise and a 45-minute drive south of Brisbane, although buses run from Brisbane to the park. Minimum age requirements vary by activity from 4 to 14 years old.
