How to Get There
Dreamworld is in Coomera on the Gold Coast, Queensland, about a 45-minute drive south of Brisbane or an approximately 30-minute drive north of Surfers Paradise. The best way to get to the theme park is by car, taxi, or shuttle, but public buses from the Gold Coast also stop close to the park. The closest train stations are the Coomera and Helensvale stations.
When to Get There
Dreamworld is open year-round, but the summer months (December–January) can get crowded. With sunny days all year, visiting in low season can help maximize your time and avoid crowds, but visiting during school holidays and celebrations can be more atmospheric, with a greater number of shows, parades, and character meet-and-greets.
