Dreamworld and WhiteWater World

The chill factor has been turned up for the school holidays with two products: a $69 unlimited world pass valid through to December 24 and a brilliant Winter Wonderland night time spectacular that adds snow play, snow slides, and southern lights to Dreamworld’s ride lineup.

Families can get a taste of the snow these school holidays without leaving Queensland when Dreamworld drops the mercury on Australia’s hottest theme park and transforms parts of Main Street into a cool Winter Wonderland each night. The additional two hours of snow play is included in the $69 unlimited pass.

Balloon with Hot Air

Any time for a short break on the Gold Coast is a good time, but you’ll never forget it if your next visit involves floating in the winter sky in a relaxing hot air balloon.

Balloon with Hot Air has winter packages great for couples, with just the two of you and a limousine transfer to the spectacular launch site where your hot air balloon awaits. Hold hands and take off on a scenic flight over the Gold Coast hinterland with views as far as the eye can see.

Celebrate after landing with a meal at O’Reilly’s Grand Homestead & Vineyard with champagne to toast of course. For bookings or tickets visit the website or call 1300 766 887.
