Come Face to Face with one of the world's fiercest predators.
Dreamworld's wildest attraction is Tiger Island where white and gold Bengal tigers play, wrestle and swim with their handlers every day. Opened in 1995, Tiger Island is the largest interactive tiger facility outside the United States and is an educational conservation-based attraction that actively works to save tigers in the wild.
A subspecies, the Bengal tiger is native to India, Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan and there are estimated to be 3000 remaining in the wild. Dreamworld’s Bengal residents include Rama and Sita whose coats are a blend of white, gold and Sultan, Kato and 2 year old Pi who have gold coats.
Twice a day Dreamworld’s Bengal Big Cats display their strengths and abilities in the Tiger Show which demonstrates a tigers ability to climb a tree, jump metres in the air and their enormous canine teeth. Guests can also catch a Bengal in The Lair where guests can compare their size to the giants of the jungle and take part in the new Tiger Feed Experience.
The only location in South East Queensland where guests can feed a tiger, the 15 minute experience is available to just 6 guests per day and is only $55 per person.
Commencing at 2:30pm, guests are ushered behind the scenes of The Lair to chat one-on-one with Dreamworld handlers to learn about a tigers diet, its behavioural patters, tiger husbandry and of course, how to safely tong-feed a 200kg big cat.
