"For Shopaholic, just go to Pacific Fair, it was best and worth your trip in my opinion.. Met rude retail assistants at Target and few stores but others was warmingly welcoming us to their stores.. Good Relaxing Trip but 2-3 days will be sufficient in Gold Coast... Tour Operator: None."

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.
