Bella’s Wonderland, Southport

Bella’s Wonderland is easily the largest play centre on the Gold Coast, delivering a one of a kind experience for the kids that needs to be seen to be believed! Redefining the term ‘play centre’, here you will find beautifully designed spaces, quality toys, and spaces where little imaginations can run wild.

Do you have a budding chef? Check out the organic market, kitchens and ice cream shop! What about a little princess? Check out the dress up boutique, with change rooms, lounges and a beauty parlor. A lego fan? Yep, there’s a room for that too. Ride the miniature cars, pop by the library, or have some time out from the sensory overload in the chill out room with plenty of toys for even the littlest of kids. Visit the giant sand pit (filled with millions of tiny wooden blocks with rolled edges – the best sand pit I’ve ever seen!) with trucks, buckets and spades. Explore the smaller play zone best suited for the younger ones, with climbing, obstacles and a ball pit with air tunnels. Finally, discover the large play zone, with a huge orange and white checked slide and so many fun obstacles, games and challenges throughout.

How to describe Bella’s Wonderland is hard – it is an incredible space that will inspire imagination and discovery. To call it a play centre is not quite right, given how many additional features it has. The venue is simply huge, and just when you think you’ve seen everything, you’ll discover another room full of fun. All you could hear as people walked through was ‘wow’, it is hard to believe what this space used to look like and what has been created (if you ever visited Abrakidazzle, let’s just say you will be gobsmacked!). Attention to detail is 10/10!

Add ons to your visit that are available to purchase include a train ride and carousel, with tickets $5 each for these attractions. There are also a few arcade games on the top floor that you can purchase tokens for.

The onsite cafe serves up a delicious menu, with an all day brunch, coffee and cake, and a cabinet with ready to go items. The food was very fresh and tasty, and the presentation was exceptional. No dodgy food here, even the nuggets and chips are fancy! The sand pit runs along one end of the cafe, which is perfect for keeping an eye on the little ones while you wait for your coffee order to come out. From the cafe you can see some of the play areas, but it is not close enough for supervising the younger children.

Entry is available either as a 2hr session or all day play, and bundles are available if purchasing 10 or more tickets. It is best to book online, however walk ins can be accommodated if there is availability at the time. (this is not guaranteed).
