Aquatopia Review

Aquatopia Sydney Review

Are you on the lookout for an exhilarating water park adventure that won’t break the bank? Look no further than Aquatopia in Prairiewood, where we recently had a splashing good time with our 5-year-old!

Comparing entry prices with other popular water parks like Raging Waters and Jamberoo, Aquatopia stands out for its unbeatable affordability. With admission at just $20 for those aged 6 and above, $10 for children aged 3 to 5, and $69 for families of four, it’s a steal! Plus, Fairfield City Council residents enjoy even lower rates, and kids aged 2 and under get in absolutely free, regardless of where they live.

But don’t be fooled by the low prices; Aquatopia boasts an array of attractions sure to delight visitors of all ages. Our son was particularly enamored with the Aqua Tower and Wave Pool. The Aqua Tower offers a thrilling mix of eight slides of varying lengths, along with playful water buckets and fountains. Meanwhile, the Wave Pool alternates between no waves, small waves, and large waves for boogie boarding.

While our son wasn’t quite tall enough (you must be at least 1.2m) to try the towering 10m and 20m slides or the Wave Rider (a surf simulator), we were impressed by the diverse range of attractions tailored for different age groups. For younger children, the Toddler Pool offers a safe and shallow space to splash around.


The moment you step foot into Cottage Point Inn, the serene ambiance sweeps you away. Surrounded by lush greenery and the gentle lull of the river, the atmosphere is nothing short of magical. It’s like a cosy escape from the hustle and bustle of Sydney, right in your backyard.

Speaking of restrictions…my son was told that he could do the Wave Rider body board simulator, so we queued up. Luckily the queue moved fast as when he got to the front, he was told you actually need to be 6. Somewhat frustratingly, our son is 6 in just 2 months. As mentioned above, 6 year olds cost more to get into the park, so under 6s have a different coloured wristband. We’ll go back after my son turns 6 and update this post on the Wave Rider body board simulator and larger slides.

For those seeking a little extra comfort and privacy, Aquatopia offers Cabana and shelter rentals throughout the park. Shelters start at $160 and include eight entry tickets, whilst Cabanas start at $300 including 16 entry tickets. The Cabanas also include a mini fridge, for added convenience. Some include a fan and/or a BBQ.

In summary, why pay premium prices elsewhere when Aquatopia offers endless fun at a fraction of the cost? Whether you’re planning a family outing or a gathering with friends, Aquatopia promises a memorable day out without breaking the bank.

A word of advice: book in advance to avoid disappointment. It usually gets booked out early for hot days, especially in school holidays of course. If you wait for a last-minute weather forecast, 9 times out of 10, it will be fully booked.

Don’t miss out on the fun—dive into Aquatopia for an unforgettable water park experience that won’t drain your wallet!
