Sea World is about animals and shows, not really about rides. Some areas closed in winter

Sea World is great for seeing all the animal shows, however you really need 2 days to see it all as it's hard to see all the shows in one day. The kids enjoyed Sea World more than... read more

Sea World is great for seeing all the animal shows, however you really need 2 days to see it all as it's hard to see all the shows in one day. The kids enjoyed Sea World more than the adults as they were able to pat some of the animals like the stingrays and the sea urchins. There were only... More

If it wasn't for the excellent dolphin and seal shows,and the aquariums,I wouldn't bother with this park.This is our 4th visit in 10 years.Every other time it was very good,but not these days.It is becoming not good value for money(as far as the Gold Coast goes) The jet ski show is a bore,the creatures of the deep would have been...

It was really very cool, the dolphins show was the best. We had a photo with dolphins that the kids wanted to do which was really excellent as we got to spend lots of time with no rush with the dolphins and the trainer was very good and took loads of time explaining and answering all the questions. The other... More

Dolphin, seals , penguins , manta rays , aquarium of sea creatures all amazing . The jet ski show very weak and inappropriate after hearing about how we should look after the sea creature environment . Prior to the show you could see hundreds of fish in the lagoon - one hour after the show the water was still so... More

Go early, take spare clothes or a towel for the kids. (There are dryers but they aren't efficient). Make sure you see all the animal shows. Not so many rides but they are still fun and they range across ages. Fast track to get to the rides is expensive but highly recommended. Food options are limited. Kids really enjoyed themselves.

My wife enjoyed a lot with all the attraction in the park. We had helicopter ride, that was amazing experience we ever had in our life. Dolphin show was really excellent.

My friends and I went there as part of a deal that we purchased at a tourist stand (that included tickets to Movie World, Sea World and Wet n' WIld) and I found it a rather interesting experience! The shows were great, and it was cool getting to see these beautiful sea creatures up close. However, don't expect much of... More

My young son was looking forward to Sea World and it didn't disappoint. While he didn't get a chance to feed the rays, they swam close enough for him to stroke them a few times. The viewing gallery was crowded at Shark Bay, but there was enough space for him to stand and stare at the sharks. There were many... More

Sea world had good things to see, polar bears, penguins, Dolphins, sea lions and a huge aquarium. When you have done all of this there are other areas to visit like a huge climbing fortress for the kids and a climbing frame. The jetski rescue ride and the storm coaster were appropriately scary/fun for the family. The line ups were... More
