Aussie parks ... In the Beginning

12 posts in this topic

Not sure if this has been posted about yet, but I couldn't see anything. Tonight on channel 7 at 6pm they are doing a 'Flashback' special all about our themeparks. From what I saw there is coverage of DW, SW, MW and WNW when they first opened, and I'm guessing it will be a form of historical account of where they have come since then. I think this is great and will certainly be tuning in. I can't wait to see actual footage of what the parks were like back then, and not just my memories. Thought some of you might be interested. . .

Not sure where you have got your information from, but 1, 6:00PM on Channel 7 & Networked Stations is 7 News Time, and secondly I couldn't find anything about any sort of Theme Park special on the Yahoo7 website for that time frame and no I didn't only search NSW & ACT, I also checked QLD's Chanel 7 Networked stations and nothing. Would you be able to share your source or prove me wrong somehow please? I invite you to make me look like a fool.

Only 2-3 minutes? That's a shame. When I saw the brief ad it sounded as if it were a whole program. Im quite disappointed now. Sorry guys, didn't mean to get your hopes up. Guess I shoulda looked for a little more info aside from the ad. Should still be good regardless.

I hope it is shown in the Sydney news, because sometimes they only show stories to areas where it is relevant.
Yeah could someone please tape it and put it on youtube or here coz it might not be shown here in Melbourne. EDIT : Flashbacks wasn't on in Melbourne. :( Edited by dreamworld_rulz

It was fairly short on Brisbane's Seven News. Didn't miss much. Just archival footage of all the parks and some that don't exist anymore/renamed etc. Interesting but not essential. They showed footage from the Movie World opening that I hadn't seen before - looked like they put on a good show. Dreamworld's main street in the archival footage looked almost identical to how it is today. I don't have the means to tape it let alone YouTube it, so hopefully some others did.

I got some pictures of MW before it was opened. My uncle was one of the building crew and he took some photos for something and I found them the other day. really interesting, I would post them if I had a scanner.
