Dreamworld or Seaworld with little kids?

Hi everyone,

Just wanting some advice on which "world" may be suitable for my family with little kids - we're just heading down for the day/ overnight from the Sunshine Coast, our first time to any of the theme parks. Our kids are 1, 4 and 6 years old. I had originally thought Seaworld would be best as they love animals and there would be more for them to do but have been reading reviews and see that Dreamworld may also be suitable for their age group? I'm confused now!

I've also looked at Currumbin sanctuary but have read it is a bit run down and not much to see...?

Any advice is much appreciated.

Thanks :)

I would go to SeaWorld anytime. Not a fan of Dreamworld and SeaWorld is far more educational

I'll vote for Dreamworld as there are quite a few different areas to it. There is Wiggles World as well as the Australian Wildlife Experience and Tiger Island. As well as some rides that will be suitable for littlies there is also the dreamworks experience and live shows.

Either way I'm sure they'll have a great day.

Hi,

Children of all ages love Seaworld and Currumbin if they are into animals.

Cheers,

For that age- seaworld is better. They have a whole little kids section and the benefit of seeing the animals . The queues at dreamworld for wiggles world were horrible..

For young kids Seaworld would be better. There is a 3 for 3 pass at the moment which is a great deal xxxtourdesk.com.au/Suppliers/Warner-Bros-Mov…

So you could do movieworld as well which is just as good as dreamworld

Yeah for that size I would say Sea world. Plus Currumbin might also be another option and well
