“Aussie World is a completely different experience in the dark. Whether it’s spinning through the night on the Redback, shooting through the air and dropping your stomach on the Bombora Bounce - riding in the dark adds a whole new dimension of challenge to your favourite ride. Located behind the Ettamogah Pub its a great stop for the kids.”
