WA Theme Parks

A collection of WA's iconic theme parks from the 1980s. Many of these sites are still around today, but are either bigger, laying in ruins or modified versions of their former lives. Landgate has delved into the archives to extract 'wicked' aerial imagery of some of these venues for WA Heritage Week. Take a trip back in time without the need of a DeLorean!

This dataset contains vectorised boundaries for the theme parks as well as the aerial imagery. Theme parks captured include:

  • Action Park (1985)
  • Adventure World (1983)
  • Aqua Thrillway (1983)
  • Atlantic Marine Park (1985)
  • Bullen's African Lion Safari Park (1983)
  • Dizzy Lamb Park (1985)
