Adventure World

theme park, attraction, landmark

Adventure World is a theme park in Perth, Western Australia. It is located in Bibra Lake, 20 km from the CBD. The park opened on 11 November 1982 as "Edgley’s Adventure World" and undergoes a winter closure each year.

Michael Edgley International created and ran the park from its inception to December 1990. 380,000 tonnes of sand were used to reshape the land contours of the industrial dump site into a suitable theme park location. Since 1999, Omni Leisure Operations has been managing the park. In 1999 LeisureWide Property Trust (a 40% owner of Omni Leisure and owned by Macquarie Bank) did not act on their option to buy Adventure World and since 2000 a West Australian, Steve Sicerich, has owned the park.
