19. Gumbuya Park

Gumbuya Park in Victoria claims to be a theme park. Really it's an animal park with a toboggan and mini golf. Yawn.

18. Greenhills Adventure Park

Look, a flying fox and a maze does not a theme park make. But thanks for trying South Australia.

17. Funfields, Whittlesea

Yeah, Funfields has a couple of cool rides — a pirate ship and some water slides, but then it's just mini golf, or really slow go karts.

16. Sugarworld Water Park

Whilst it has a giant bucket that dumps water on you, and the water slides are getting faster, it's still not that great.

15. Manly Waterworks, Sydney

Manly Waterworks gets bumped up because it featured in BMX Bandits. But it's only a couple of slides, so not that much.

14. Kings Carnival, Perth

Kings Carnival gets points for having an old school Ferris Wheel and some semi thrill seeking rides. It's one of the oldest theme parks in the country too. Which does make you slightly worried about the safety of some of the attractions...

13. Big Splash Waterpark, Canberra

Canberra's only waterpark is pretty impressive. It even had an upgrade last summer, with some super fast Twister slides.

12. The Beachouse! Glenelg

South Australia makes it back on the list with the Beachouse, which is pretty rad. Look at those slides! It also has arcade games and a historic merry go round.

11. Magic Mountain, Merimbula

The roller coaster may be not that big, but the the pirate ship is fantastic and it has a carpet slide. A CARPET SLIDE.

10. Sea World, Gold Coast

It's mainly about the dolphins, but it has some pretty cool rides too. Still, it's not as great as it's hyped up to be

9. Jamberoo Recreation Park, Jamberoo

Not only does Jamberoo have the catchiest ad ever, but the rides are very cool. Lots rides and it's nowhere near as busy as some of the more popular parks.

5. Luna Park, Sydney and Melbourne

The old classic, Luna Park. It's up there, with it's vintage charm and some pretty awesome rides. The crazed face is a little creepy though.
