Dreamworld's New $75 Million Resort
- Parents Only
Hold tight, travelers! In a bid to bolster the regeneration of tourism in Australia's seaside playground of the Gold Coast, one of its most beloved (and beleaguered) icons is getting its own massive, squillion dollar resort.
Dreamworld is about to make all your holiday dreams come true, adding a $75 million family-friendly resort to the expansive theme park. The proposed four-star accommodation hub will be right on the doorstep of the current site, taking over an empty plot of land next to Dreamworld, and will boast 240 resort-style rooms, 40 bungalows, a five-star caravan park, conference facilities, restaurants, swimming pools and a gymnasium.
The new development promises guests staying at the resort an 'action-packed' holiday with a whole new level of convenience, plus exclusive access to Dreamworld and WhiteWater World theme park offers.
The bold plan is set to reinvigorate the 40-year-old theme park following the roller-coaster ride of recent years that saw the 2016 Thunder River Rapid ride tragedy and the COVID tourism crisis.
"This announcement is another positive step in the recovery of our parks post-COVID and will have a significant economic impact not only for Dreamworld but also for the northern Gold Coast," Dreamworld CEO, Greg Yong said, "The hotel and tourist park will complement Dreamworld as a premium entertainment destination."
Dreamworld has entered into an agreement with developer Evolution Group to undertake the building of the expensive new addition, but dates are yet to be set for when the precinct will take shape.
