What’s new at Aussie World?
Over two million dollars has been invested in recent years to expand the complex and water play area. A recent addition, Leak’n Logs, is jam-packed with unpredictable water surprises including a tin shed that inside emulates a typical Queensland electrical storm complete with thunder, wind, lightning and rain. You can expect to be entertained by a walk-through mist shed sitting underneath a leaky corrugated iron water tank, random tipping buckets, intermittent and continuous showers, an outback log waterfall, and irregular dancing water jets. A great way to cool off on a hot summer day!
