We were very lucky to be invited to review all three of the big theme parks on our recent Gold Coast holiday – Sea World, Dreamworld and Movie World. The only problem was, we didn’t have all that much free time. So which theme park should we pick? The kids and I discussed it, and we all agreed – we should somehow squeeze in all […]Read More..
We had such fun at Warner Bros. Movie World on our recent Gold Coast theme park trip! Only a twenty minute drive from our Gold Coast hotel (you can read our Jupiters Hotel review here), Movie World is clearly sign-posted from the Pacific Motorway, and it’s a breeze to park. Although we strategically (ha ha) went […]Read More..
Dreamworld’s motto is simple – “Happiness” They certainly got that right! We were very excited to be invited to review Dreamworld on our recent trip to the Gold Coast. We’d already heard that Dreamworld was Australia’s most popular theme park, and so were expecting big things – we weren’t to be disappointed! The drive to Dreamworld from our Broadbeach […]Read More..

Lucky for us we had been invited to the show and after-party, however we certainly would have gone to see the show […]Read More..

This week I took my single parent family to Madame Tussauds, Sydney… The last time we were at Darling Harbour we visited the Sydney Aquarium and I had tried to talk the kids into visiting Madame Tussauds wax museum too, but they were just not interested. At the time, I thought it was pointless to waste […]Read More..
