Australia's gorgeous views may be enough for some from ground level, but adventure seekers might like to take things a little bit higher. Skydiving is an activity that's not for the faint hearted, but it's certainly a load of fun as you spiral through the sky with the wind rushing past at a crazy speed. We've rounded up some of the best skydiving spots in Australia. All you need to do is head along to the one that appeals the most then get set to feel the wind in your hair!
Warner Bros. Movie World
Another option, Dreamworld is home to some of the biggest and most exciting rides in Australia. The entertainment is not limited to rides either - there are also plenty of animals to see at Tiger Island and Dreamworld Corroboree.
Dreamworld Corroboree is home to hundreds of native animals and provides plenty of up-close and personal encounters - kids will love to hug a cute koala or feed a crocodile.
As the name suggests, Tiger Island is home to magnificent Bengal and Sumatran Tigers. Observe these beautiful creatures carrying out their natural behaviours or opt to take a walk in the company of a full-grown tiger, if you're feeling brave.
If marine animals are your thing, Sea World is the ultimate theme park destination. The main attraction of the park are the marine mammals, with bottlenose dolphins, sea lions, New Zealand fur seals, polar bears and stingrays all on show. The park hosts a sea lion and dolphin show twice daily, showcasing the awe-inspiring strength and beauty of the animals.
Admire powerful sharks and manta rays from an underwater viewing area, or take to the water for a glass bottomed boat tour to witness them gliding beneath your feet. If you're feeling really brave, grab a wetsuit and snorkel among them.
Apart from the animals, there are also some theme park rides. Ride the Sea Viper or Viking Revenge Flume, or brave the newly installed Storm Coaster - but remember your towel, as you may get a little wet!
Wet 'N' Wild
Another watery destination, Whitewater is attached to Dreamworld, so could be combined with a visit on a hot day! Take to the slides and then relax as a family in a private cabana for lunch.
Getting to each destination is simple, as shuttles run to and from Surfers Paradise daily. All you need to worry about is choosing which park to visit!
