Really enjoyed our time at sugar world. It's a great local venue with lots of options. Food is pretty average so suggest taking your own but overall it's a really good day. We have small kids and they are well catered for. Overall very good.

I am a big kid so a friend and I went to Sugarworld for a few hours on Saturday afternoon and had a blast. It is on a much smaller scale than your "Whitewater World" or Wet'n'Wild" type water park but the slides are fun for a few hours and entry fee is very reasonable at $16.50 for an adult... More

Our little kids had a ball. Food at the cafe was surprisingly good and well priced. You are able to take your own food and drinks too. Plenty of grassed areas. Lifeguards are great and make sure the kids behave.

This is such an excellent fun park for kids and adults alike. Smaller slides and pools for under 10's, big ones for older kids and adults. Lots of sunscreen and hats essential, so cool with all the water and undercover seating that its easy to overlook just how hot it may be. Well maintained with shady spots to spread out... More

Kids had fun but maybe better value if kids 10 and under as can access more of the park. Said you couldn't bring in food and cafe is not that great, however you can take non commercial food. Not much to do if you don't want to slide as pools not that inviting.

We had planned to do something different but the kids were hot and tired and we decided to do something for them so choose Sugarworld. I wasn't expecting too much but honestly I had just as much fun as the kids. The grounds are lovely with peacocks wondering around and plenty of seating and shade. We took a picnic lunch... More

The water park was easy to find and the walk in from the carpark across the lawns was awesome. The peacocks all around the park even before we got inside had the grandkids enthralled at first I think we could played and chased them with out even going in. We got there early and before the crowds, but it wasn't... More

Sugar world is after the upgrade a few years ago again a nice place to bring the kids for a sunny day. Of course the sliders are not like the big parks like wet and wild but there no choice in cairns if you want sliders. My kids love it . The food that is served needs to be improved.... More

The kids love this place, water, slides and deep fried food. There are bbq facilities if you want to BYO. I can think of better places to go but sometimes it's good enough just to keep the kids happy.

Great Southside attraction. The kids have a ball and end up exhausted by the end of the day, therefore job well done!
