Tiger Island Up Close, the much-anticipated Tiger Island Up Close has officially opened and now forms part ofthe multi-million-dollar makeover of Tiger Island delivered in late 2016.

As a global leader in tiger conservation,Dreamworld is committed to providing world-class facilities to provide guests interactive experiences, while educating them on the plight of tigers through the Dreamworld Wildlife Foundation (DWF).

Up Close features viewing tunnels into the enclosure which children can crawl through for an up-close experience and large glass viewing areas and windows with mesh, where you can get so close, you could feel the breath of a tiger. The area includesa unique interactive program, including tiger walks, feeds and photos with a percentage of money from these experiences going directly to global tiger conservation.

WhiteWater World, one of the many worlds that make up Dreamworld, has turned the temperature up across all slides and pools, becoming the warmest water park on the Gold Coast, Australia. Add to this a new luxury range of two-storey Treehouse cabanas and you have the ideal destination to transport you to a world of fun and relaxation. EvoEnergy undertook one of the largest water heating installations in Australia with a cutting-edge system upgrade cementing WhiteWater World as one of the warmest and most energy efficient water parks on the planet.

EvoEnergy's redesign will continue to heat over 30 slides, water-rides and pools to approximately 26 degrees while cutting existing carbon emissions by over 35 percent.

The three new luxury Treehouse cabanas will feature 42 inch televisions, speakers, mini refrigerators, lounges and deck chairs located on the open top deck, giving you views across the park. The cabanas can be used separately or can be opened up to accommodate larger groups.

The Parkway Patisserie & Grill is a new dining experience for Dreamworld with five types of homemade pancakes and a variety of dishes featuring fresh local ingredients.
