In my final year of studies at University and major in Journalism and History.

My mum bought my sister and myself and our partners Dreamworld annual passes for Christmas, despite the fact that we are all adults. In fear of missing out, mum got herself one too.
One weekend, we went to Dreamworld and because we can casually stroll around unlike the frantic one-day visitors that feel the need to get everything done, we were able to take our time. We decided to go to the Billabong Restaurant for lunch which is located at the back of Dreamworld, near the lake. The lake was filled with turtles and eels which was a delightful sight to see them swim up close to the edge. However the turtle's shells were covered in furry long moss which didn't look nice.
The restaurant was around $25 for each adult and kids were on special for just $5 (from memory about $12 normally). Inside the restaurant, it had a very Australian bush feel with fake gum trees around the support beams and the full length glass windows looking out onto the lake. The food was good, not great, but worth the $25. There was a reasonable selection of salads, hot food and desserts. Although I was disappointed there were no sprinkles for the ice cream! They did have takeaway cups for the kids to take their ice cream back out into the park, which I thought was a good idea.
If you have the time I would defiantly recommend the Billabong Restaurant at Dreamworld. The price is reasonable, especially when you pay $15 for a burger and fries at the shops around the park.
