The is definitely a great little theme park for the little ones that are not quite big enough to enjoy the rides of the larger theme parks of the Coast, although the entry price is a little too high at $29 for adult entry, for what is on offer. The variety of rides including the Ferris wheel, dodgem and the river rapids. For the slightly older kids (or big kids at heart) the octopus and red back offers that little bit of adrenaline. I thought it a bit of a turnoff that you couldn't even have a look around the gift shop before paying the entry fee but hey for families it is not a bad place to let the kids have a bit of fun.
The mini golf is definatley my favourite attraction here, but really not a fan of any of the bigger rides such as the rollercoaster and octopus ride. Food here is good though, but the general pricing of this place is too expensive in my opinion. One of the ride operators looked very unhappy, so it didn't really make me feel too invited when I went on the ferris wheel he was in charge of. Its still a very good place for children however. There are various shops just outside of aussie world, particular the pie store which are excellent.
