Aussie World Fun!

Today I took the kids to Aussie World to reward them for being so good these School Holidays. One of the things that brings me back to Aussie World time and time again is that’s it’s different each and every time we go, new attractions and always something extra special for the kids.

This visit they had a Disney Princess show, and not just any show there was singing and dancing and the frocks – don’t get me started on the frocks! Miss 3 and I were in awe Belle, Cinderella and Snow White what a trifecta of fun and all included in the price of admission.

The day was sunny and the park atmosphere was filled with fun, fun, fun without a queue in sight! The kids wasted no time and ran around like crazy little mice eager for some fun. Quickly they found themselves on the Red Back, The Flying Swings and Bug Run.

Even though Aussie World continues to make changes to the park they also know the importance of keeping classics like the Merry Go Round which Miss 3 could not get enough of. To be able to ride a pony which she carefully ( very carefully ) chose was the highlight to her day.

A very close second was the ‘little beaut toot toot’ train, she could of rode around for hours (and did!) on this colourful little guy. This train screams ‘ride me’ and is not only a favourite amongst the tots but also the adults.

Jake & Tilly came and said hello which both kids loved ( despite Miss 3’s face… she’s smiling on the inside! ) these guys were so much fun to have a photo with and really added a little magic to our day.

One of the things that always brings me back to Aussie World is that it is great for all ages and there is something for everyone. It doesn’t matter if you love Rollercoasters or the Teacups you will find fun everywhere you look.

Master 8 decided to turn it up notch and ventured onto ‘The Wasp‘ ride and although it looked fun I happily took advantage of sitting and watching on with Miss 3 (this old chook doesn’t have the stomach she used to). After 3 rides on The Wasp Master 8 felt suitably filled up with thrills and it was time for sideshow alley & Mini Golf before we left for the day.

A whole day of fun and only 15 minutes from home. Each time I leave Aussie World I’m reminded how lucky we are on the Sunshine Coast to have all of this infrastructure right in our own backyard. Acres and acres of fun and entertainment without leaving the Sunshine Coast.

For the younger visitors there’s the new Speed Stars ride. Give it a go as a family, or let the little ones rev up the engines, for a fun experience complete with checked flags and a speedy finishing straight. This ride is sure to thrill and give kids a real taste of what it feels like behind the wheel of a racing car.

Under The Purple Sky Lions inPlace inc


I have always found that fashion on the Sunshine Coast has a relaxed flair. Sunny Coasters are incredible at dressing up when appropriate and enjoying a pair of Havianas and a simple maxi dress on weekends. One of the things I enjoy most about our gorgeous lifestyle is having the best of both worlds. Whilst, I can enjoy my relaxed informal weekends, I’m also a sucker for a fab event and frock.


Last weekend, I attended the Under The Purple Sky Gala Night in honour of Lions inPlace Inc, a charity supporting victims of domestic violence. The event was held at Aussie World and was a truly spectacular sight with guests attending to raise money and awareness for a charity working so hard within the community. This beautiful occasion, like all of White House Celebrations affairs, was attended by a cross section of women from the Sunshine Coast and with that an incredible display of style & fashion! One of my favourite things to do at a fancy soiree of this size is to people watch. Soaking up all of the gorgeous style & glamour with that Sunshine Coast edge. Glowing skin, sparkling smiles and the oozing of simplistic trends. Clean, romantic make-up and polished hair with not a haviana in sight (except perhaps for the cab line at the end of the night). The dress code for this event was cocktail and while I love a good cocktail as much as the next girl I must say cocktail is one dress code that continually leaves me stumped. I’m a gal who loves to frock up and is not afraid of bling. With this dress code, traditionally gowns are to the knee and more relaxed than formal.

In the name of research and of course to satisfy my sticky beak nature, I chose five of my favourite looks of the night and asked each lady the same questions about their outfits.
