An Australian theme park first, DREAMWORLD CORROBOREE is an interactive walk-through experience celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, wildlife and stories. As guests make their way through CORROBOREE, they will learn about traditional stories associated with key animal exhibits and have the opportunity to try hands-on activities including fire making, weapon throwing and music making.
The central focal point of DREAMWORLD CORROBOREE is a replicated ‘humpy’ called the Corroboree Theatre featuring a film produced by renowned Aboriginal artist David Hudson especially for Dreamworld. Titled “Creation of the Gold Coast” this film is a narrated feature about the local Yugambeh people’s story. Also inside the Corroboree Theatre will be a digital dot painting activity, artwork and a map of the Indigenous tribe boundaries throughout Australia.
Throughout DREAMWORLD CORROBOREE Australia’s unique and beautiful wildlife is immortalised in commissioned Indigenous artwork that is showcased throughout the area as part of the experience and storytelling.
