The largest museum of its kind in Australia, the Gold Coast Wax Museum is home to over 110 life-size wax figures that you'll have to look twice at! Featuring a range of exhibits including copies of British Crown Jewels and dioramas depicting Australia's history.Visited by thousands every year, the realistic wax figures and their authentic costumes gives you the chance to meet a range of famous and important people from Queensland, Australia and around the word.

Be sure to bring your camera as you're likely to spot some celebrities including Michael Jackson, Miley Cyrus, Johnny Depp and Kylie Minogue as well as some political figures including former Australian PM's Bob Hawke and John Howard, US President Barack Obama, Former US President John F. Kennedy and even members of the Royal Family.

The Gold Coast Wax Museum contains figures which have been crafted by leading local and overseas sculptors to international standards, equal in quality to the world's best, as seen in Europe, the United Kingdom, and U.S.A. The incredibly intricate detail in the figures is amazing - and includes hair applied one strand at a time, requiring many working hours for one hand, and the eyes so anatomically real they seem to follow the viewer around.

This painstaking work takes two and a half years, with each figure valued at $60,000 plus. Bring your sense of adventure and your camera and see something exciting and quite unique. Buy tickets for the Gold Coast Wax Museum in Surfers Paradise here.

Great time killer and interesting informative 👍 👌

Wasn't quite as big as the Sydney one we visited but still interesting. The downstairs torture house of horrors was a bit scary for our youngest (7 year old). The rest of us found it interesting and informative. Our tour guide was amazing, clearly someone that likes his job a lot!

A fun time! It was a great experience if you haven't seen this sort of thing.

Such an interesting and unusual family activity,
Emma Robertson 4 months ago

The wax sculptures were amazing, the workers definitely made the experience they are very knowledgeable and welcoming, unfortunately, our kids weren’t interested in this activity however I’m glad we spent the time here it was unlike anything we’ve seen before.

A must see on your list of attractions to visit on the Gold Coast.
Kirsten Faulkner 1 year ago

Definitely a place worth visiting if you are holidaying on the Gold Coast. I was surprised at how much there is to see in the Museum. The staff were very informative, especially on the guided tour. We would rate this as one of the top places in Surfers Paradise to visit and will definitely recommend this place to others.

Really cool for people interested in the past and the ways they use to execute people for bad behaviour but for me myself I am more modern and enjoy more modern attractions

Really cool for people interested in the past and the ways they use to execute people for bad behaviour but for me myself I am more modern and enjoy more modern attractions. But it was still really cool and worth the money. My girlfriend really enjoyed it.

We really enjoyed the wax museum
Emma Robertson 2 years ago

We really enjoyed the wax museum! It was really fun and interesting! The hosts are lovely and helpful and the guided tour really topped the entire experience, the was people are very detailed and interesting, we would recommend visiting here if on the Gold Coast!

This was an amazing place
Rebekkah Rhys-Davies 2 years ago

This was an amazing place. Not a lot of wax figures but still great and a lot looked so lifelike, kids liked recognising people they knew in history and now, and the man who gave the torture chamber tour was wonderful, knew his history and have great detail to each part of the tour. Would highly recommend especially the torture chamber! Bit sad you couldn’t take pics in that area though as I would’ve liked to have some memories.

I absolutely loved this tour
Cheryl Petsch 2 years ago

I absolutely loved this tour. Highly recommended! If you are looking for some to do but with limited in Surfers Paradise, this is perfect. Suitable for all ages, you get to at own pace before you go on a guided tour which a lot history lesson especially for children. This tour was so easy and quick to book.

I was quite surprised we actually had a really good time
Nat Patti 3 years ago

I was quite surprised we actually had a really good time. The children enjoyed it if you’re in Surfers Paradise I recommend you go down and have a look at the wax museum. In there for a proximately an hour and afterwards it was like a history lesson with the kids.

Such a cool little extra attraction to go to while you're in Surfers right on the Gold Coast
Nicole Jensen 3 years ago

Such a cool little extra attraction to go to while you're in Surfers right on the Gold Coast. The guided tour I found very interesting! The tour guides knew their stuff! A great location as we did a few other attractions in there at the same time.
