The PERFECT Summer day out with friends and family

With the new year just around the corner and school holidays well and truly underway, you can’t go past Aussie World’s summer of fun to kick off 2022!

This summer we are open seven days of week and calling all locals and visitors on the Sunshine Coast and surrounds to experience a summer day out with family and friends!

A day of fun at Aussie World will give you the chance to experience the thrills, slides, bumps and coasters which the Sunshine Coast’s only theme park is renowned for, as well as live entertainment, great food and hospitality that will create memories for many years to come.

Here are our top five picks for your day out at Aussie World when you visit us this summer.


SX-360 Thrill Ride

Australia’s tallest and fastest 360-degree pendulum is located right here at Aussie World, and became the Sunshine Coast’s first tier 1 thrill ride when it opened in June 2021. Since it’s opening, the SX360 has welcomed thousands of thrill-seekers looking for an exhilarating and unique experience on the coast.

The SX360 reaches speeds of up to 80km/h while launching 32 metres into the air and completing 360° inversions with up to 5G's of force – this ride is not for the faint hearted!

Thrill-seekers must be at least 140cm to ride and prepared to experience an extreme thrill level, never before seen in Australia.


Ballroom Blitz is BACK

The bright colours and carnival sounds of the Ballroom Blitz have returned this year and guests have been enjoying their re-acquaintance with our iconic family ride.

The Ballroom Blitz takes you soaring 15 metres into the air, while the wave swinger spins and rocks you round and round with your legs dangling in the wind.

This family-friendly favourite will make you dizzy with excitement while you feel the breeze blowing through your hair and giving you a bird’s eye view of the park as you spin around.


Platypus Ponds Mini Golf

As well as our iconic thrill rides, family rides and entertainment, Aussie World is home to a range of games including Sideshow Alley and the fun-filled mini golf at Platypus Ponds.

The kids will love meeting our resident golf club pro, Platypus Pete as they compete on the 18-hole classic mini golf course at Aussie World. Be as competitive as you like and earn bragging rights for a hole in one or earn a spot on the champions leader board if you post a low score.

If you dine at the Banana Bender Pub you can play a round of mini golf at Aussie World’s Platypus Ponds from just $10 per person.


Summer eating at it's best

Summer is the time to enjoy a meal with family and friends, and spoil ourselves with a sweet treat to celebrate the holiday season.

We have an abundance of dining options available to suit everyone from modern Australia cuisine at the Mango’s Bar and Grill to burgers and hot dogs at the Fun Café and the delectable Ice Creamy to satisfy your sweet tooth.

The Banana Bender pub is also open seven days a week during summer for good times with a twist! Locals and visitors are offered up a taste of the Sunshine Coast on tap, while enjoying the many uniquely themed bars throughout the pub featuring fun Aussie artifacts, making it the most iconic gastropub on the Sunshine Coast.

A courtesy bus is also now available from the Banana Bender Pub during the summer holidays.
