Sea World – Gold Coast

Sea world is a theme park based on marine life and is situated at Sea World Drive, 3 km north of Surfers Paradise on Queensland’s Gold Coast.

How to get there?? Well, we took the Gold Coast train at 8:00 am from the roma street station and reached to Helensvale station in an hour. From there we got the bus for sea world and it took 25 minutes to reach there. 

the monorail

Monorail @Sea world

At the entrance we met Sesame street ( Gali Gali Sim Sim /pogo channel) characters, posing with kids. Kids were too happy to meet their favourite characters (Elmo looked the brightest of all). Near the entrance were the monorail station and the ropeway halt. For having a picturesque view of sea world, one must try the monorail and the ropeway. the best part is – these are free of cost. For a  wider and  bird eye view of the area, helicopter rides are there with a fee of 55 AUD /person /10 min approx.

After getting an idea of the place, we headed to the dolphin cove, where Beautiful dolphins were dancing to the tunes of human being. I knew that dolphins have got stong smelling- power and are capable of understanding human actions but knowing something and watching it are different aspects. A show was running demonstrating how we can live in harmony with other creatures of this planet. A trained staff was having a ride over a dolphin and it was too fast. Then those dolphins responded to palm movements, head movement of humans and to the rhythms. It’s magical for me to see the closeness of man and other animals. At least I can never try that.

There were several rides – jet rescue, cork screw – all horrifying for me. Screams of people who were riding scared me. One BERMUDA TRIANGLE RIDE was there which was not so speedy so I did not miss the chance. It showed the possible happenings which occurred to the lost planes and ships and was a good try.

 The Sesame Street Beach was a heaven for kids. It had train and helicopter rides, merry-go-round, bird bouncer, and a splash zone. A show featuring all sesame street characters was there and not only kids but everyone danced to their tunes.

Wait wait….in the animal section there were Polar Bears, sharks,sting rays, sea urchins, star fishes; and you could hand feed some of them. I wanted to spend some more time watching the beauty of sea world inhabitants but …..there’s always a time limit for everything (???????)

There were plenty of food stalls, food from outside is not allowed unless you have special dietary requirement.

It was a beautiful day in a beautiful place. I’m planning to go once more…..Amen !
