In its Travellers Choice awards, TripAdvisor revealed Hervey Bay’s WetSide Water Park as the top Amusement Park/Water Park in Australia and the South Pacific, followed by Twin Waters’ Aqua Fun Park.

 

Queensland attractions dominated Australasia’s top family parks, with the Sunshine State nabbing seven of the top ten positions in the index, including the recently, highly publicized Dreamworld.

 

WetSide Water Park also finished in the top ten in the uber-competitive sphere of amusement and water parks worldwide.

 

The quality and quantity of reviews and ratings for amusement and water parks were considered when determining the award winners.
