Our trip to the Gold Coast was one of the most memorable and wonderful experiences of our lives. Its white sand beaches and exciting theme parks along with the lush rainforests and aboriginal villages make it an iconic destination. Everyone must visit the Gold Coast while visiting Australia.

At Brisbane Airport, we could not wait to visit the famous theme parks situated in the Gold Coast. First, we visited Sea World and saw a variety of exhibits on marine life. From penguins and seals to turtles and dolphins ⁠— the theme park offered a number of animal adventures. We saw the Seal Guardians Presentation, which highlighted the importance of saving the oceans. Another awesome experience was watching the Thunder Lake Stunt Show featuring spectacular stunts performed by expert athletes.

We also visited Warner Bros. Movie World. Many of its attractions were theme-based, showcasing popular films and television series that we have cherished since childhood. From scary roller-coasters to motion simulators and water rides — there was so much to explore. We were fascinated to meet our favourite DC superheroes and supervillains. The most splendid moments of our visit were spent while riding the DC Rivals HyperCoaster. Interestingly, we got to know that it was the longest, tallest, and fastest HyperCoaster in the Southern Hemisphere. We also enjoyed riding Batwing Spaceshot and Superman Escape. While riding the GREEN LANTERN Coaster, we could feel the adrenaline pumping through our veins when we experienced one of the steepest drops on the roller-coaster.

Next morning, we visited Dreamworld, the largest theme park in Australia. It was amazing to see so many rides and attractions, all in one place. We went to Dreamworld Corroboree and saw koalas and kangaroos besides gaining an insight into the aboriginal culture and lifestyle. The aboriginal communities form an intrinsic part of Australian heritage
