What is Gold Coast
The Gold Coast is an extensive coastal city (actually, a conurbation of cities, towns and suburbs) in the southeast corner of the state of Queensland in Australia, located between the state capital of Brisbane to the north and the New South Wales state border to the south. Now combined into what amounts to the 6th largest city in Australia (500,000 inhabitants), the Gold Coast has long been a high profile tourist destination for Australians and overseas travelers alike. The name of the chief constituent city of the region, Surfers Paradise, says it all...

I think Wet'n'Wild is still the biggest water park in Australia, but I will say that it's more like amusement park with water. One big pool with wave machine and many separated water rides. each time you want to go any of those rides you have to wait at least ten minutes (it could be also more than 45minutes) out of water.

One of the biggest theme park in Australia. If you have time to spend a day for amusement park spend it here, but prepare to the long lines, because the main rides are next to each other. During the visit you are also able to visit in Australian Big Brother House or see wild animals.
