Dreamworld is a theme park and zoo situated on the Gold Coast in Queensland. It is Australia's biggest theme park with over 40 rides and attractions.

The park is made up of several themed lands: Ocean Parade, DreamWorks Experience, ABC Kids World, Tiger Island, Main Street, Gold Rush Country, Whitewater World and Corroboree. These lands have a collection of rides, animal exhibits, shows, food outlets and merchandise shops.

Dreamworld is currently home to four roller coasters. The oldest is The Gold Coaster and the newest is BuzzSaw. Dreamworld was known to have a lack of coasters compared to overseas park and their competitor, Warner Bros. Movie World. Dreamworld had seen the lack of coasters and decided to take action with the announcement of a new roller coaster built by Mack Rides, named Steel Taipan. Due to COVID-19, the opening of the coaster has been moved to late 2021.

Dreamworld was noted for being the former location of the Australian Big Brother house filmed at the Dreamworld Studios, since the program began in Australia in 2001. In December 2006, Dreamworld expanded its offerings by opening WhiteWater World next door. On several occasions during the year, Dreamworld remains open after dark. This event, known as Park After Dark, includes all of the thrill rides and a children's rides.
