DREAMWORLD is set to undergo a massive transformation with the theme park unveiling plans for a new $75 million ‘Dreamworld Resort’.
The massive project, which will include a 4-star 250 room hotel, 40 bungalows and a 5-star tourist park, will be built on part of the surplus land owned by Ardent Leisure adjacent to the park.
The theme park said the resort will be designed to cater to all guests, especially interstate travellers, and include all the bells and whistles like restaurants, conferencing facilities and leisure facilities such as swimming pools and a gym.

“The hotel and tourist park will complement Dreamworld as a premium entertainment destination and add a new level of convenience for guests who will have our theme park and water park on their accommodation’s doorstep” said Dreamworld CEO, Greg Yong.
“This announcement is another positive step in the recovery of our parks post-COVID and will have a significant economic impact not only for Dreamworld, but also for the northern Gold Coast, one of Australia’s fastest growing regional corridors.
“The project will create employment within the local community and contribute to the regeneration of tourism on the Gold Coast.”
Dreamworld has entered into an agreement with developer Evolution Group to build the precinct.
“We are pleased to partner with Evolution Group. They bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the project and understand the needs of the local community and travellers in relation to destination tourism projects,” Yong said.
It comes just days after it was revealed Movie World was planning a hotel at its Gold Coast site, with an official announcement expected in the coming days.
