While it not related to the American SeaWorld chain, Sea World Australia does offer a similar mix of marine life exhibits and traditional theme park attractions. Located on the Gold Coast in Queensland, the park's most unique offering is a number of exhibits and shows that provide an insight into the creatures that live in seas all over the world. This includes Polar Bear Shores (Australia's only polar bear exhibit) and the sprawling Shark Bay (the world's largest man-made lagoon system). Two roller coasters feature in the park's line-up, along with a variety of children's attractions that are housed in the Nickelodeon Land and Castaway Bay areas.

Park History

Sea World originally opened in 1958, and was known as the Surfers Paradise Ski Gardens. Its primary offering was water ski shows, although this was expanded when it moved to a new location in 1971. A year later, it switched to the Sea World name, and began installing a series of new attractions. In recent years, major exhibits such as Shark Bay and Penguin Encounter have been opened, and the park is also now home to its own on-site water park.
