The Dreamworld team joined the celebrations in Broadbeach today to encourage all visitors to experience two of the Gold Coast’s most popular attractions while they are here.

“We’re delighted to be part of showcasing our city and its iconic attractions to the rest of the world and leaving a lasting impression on visitors. We look forward to reaping the benefits of the international exposure we have gained thanks to the Commonwealth Games in the years ahead.”

Minister for Tourism Industry Development and the Commonwealth Games Kate Jones said attractions like Dreamworld and Skypoint are an important part of the Gold Coast’s diverse offering of tourism attractions.

“We’re committed to helping Gold Coasters make the most of the Commonwealth Games and that’s exactly what Dreamworld has done,” she said.

“It’s important we put our best foot forward during the Games to ensure visitors to the Coast keep coming back.”

Dreamworld’s wildlife and cultural experiences have proven especially popular with visitors to the park in recent weeks with the added bonus of being able to meet new tiger cubs Mya and Melati at the all new Tiger Island.
