Itinerary

Your Gold Coast – Sea World Theme Park Pass is your ticket to a magical marine world. Make your way to Sea World Drive Main Beach, Surfers Paradise, and present your booking voucher at the entrance gate. You will then be issued with a pass that is valid for the whole day.

The park opens at 1000h (10:00am) daily. Be sure to get there early so that you have time to enjoy all the attractions.

There’s something for all the family at Sea World. Discover the wonders of the deep oceans and experience amazing rides, shows and attractions. Find out more about the marine environment, and the active role Sea World plays in Australian marine research and rescue.

Some thrilling experiences on offer include:

Polar Bear Shores: Admire these magnificent white bears – the largest land carnivores in the world – in a state-of-the-art environment simulating the Arctic tundra in summer. Find out fascinating and surprising facts about polar bears and watch them swim and play though large underwater viewing windows.

Shark Bay: Three zones allowing for excellent viewing and interaction, including a touch pool, a snorkel and dive lagoon and a shark lagoon (the largest in the world) house some of the most feared sharks on the planet. Shark Bay helps you understand these majestic creatures and corrects some of the common misunderstandings surrounding them.

Imagine: Marvel at the grace and agility of the dolphins as they interact with their trainers at Dolphin Cove. This enchanting presentation featuring the world’s most popular marine mammals is set to a beautiful musical score.

'Shark Attack' – Bull Sharks in our Backyard’: The only display in the world which focuses on bull sharks. It explains the life history and behavior of these fish and dispels myths surrounding bull shark attacks.

Penguin Point: Meet the world’s smallest penguins – the delightful fairy penguins. Just 16 inches (40 cm) tall, these cute birds are a lovely slate-blue on the back with white chests and tummies.

Ray Reef: Feed, touch and watch more than 100 rays perform their stately underwater ‘ballet’ in their colorful Ray Reef home. Learn all about the part played by rays in the ocean ecosystem.
