SurfnPlay: The Southern Hemisphere’s Largest Water Park is Coming to Australia

  • Family

We all love a good water park, and this gigantic new one heading down under looks set to be the best - and biggest - yet.

The $100 million project - to be named Surfnplay Aqua Park - spans 18,200sqm inside, and 20,000sqm outside and is set to rival Sydney's Raging Waters, Queensland's Wet 'n' Wild and many other of Australia's mega water parks to claim the title of Australia's largest water park!

SurfnPlay Aqua Park is set to be built by Melbourne’s Pellicano and Zagame families — who have been planning the immense water park for the past seven years!

SurfnPlay will include the sorts of waterslides that kids are used to seeing only in video games, as well as specially designed slides with extra water jets and zip line towers that will launch park-goers from the sides. There will also be a wave machine that’s a whopping seven times the size of the one set up at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre a few years ago!

And when the adrenalin-fuelled activities get a bit too much, there will also be a 423-metre-long lazy river to float along, beneath a giant indoor and outdoor freshwater aquarium.

Retractable glass walls and bulkheads will keep the park’s outdoor features sealed off during winter, allowing the park to remain functional during the city’s cooler weather.
