Perfect for a hot day, Leak’n Logs is a water play area with an outback Australian theme.

Ride the Plunge Aussie WorldPlunge
Take the plunge on the Sunshine Coast’s only water ride. The plunge takes riders along a waterway in hollowed out logs and propels them down a water ramp at great speed… twice!
You can easily see the classic 1960s Ferris Wheel from the road as your drive past Aussie World – just imagine what you could see from the top of it! There’s a fantastic view of the Sunshine Coast and Hinterland to be seen up here so make sure you bring your cameral along on this ride.
The 15 metre height of the Giant Slide doesn’t look like much – until you’re at the top! Sitting atop a soft mat you’ll slip and slide 46 metres over a bunch of stomach lifting bumps.
Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel
For those that love the old classics, the Rock ‘n’ Roll Rebel takes you on a fast paced ride for a rock around the clock with music from the 50s and 60s, paired up with modern special effects.
Space Shaker Swinging Ship
The Space Shaker takes you on a thrill ride up above Aussie World where you’ll be bombarded with g-forces as you’re thrown back and forth, only to experience weightlessness at the top between spins.
Wild Mouse Rollercoaster
This piece is a classic just as much as it is a thrill ride. The Wild Mouse was originally built in 1935 and the wooden construction has been carefully restored to give you the twists, turns and hair pin corners riders experienced back in the 30s.
