Located on a hectare of foreshore land between Pialba Caravan Park and Seafront Oval on the Esplanade, the park is built on 384 piers sunk deep into the sand to raise the traffic areas on boardwalks, preserving the dune structure beneath and allowing native plants to flourish.

The water park features hundreds of spouts and jets, fountains interactive play equipment, water slides, surfing, special play area for under-5’s called TotSide, tipping buckets, music and a giant water screen. The site also includes a coffee shop, viewing decks and boardwalks, educational displays, amenities blocks and the pay-per-use Board Rider wave machine.

Entry into WetSide is free however people will be charged $6.00 for a 4 minute session on the FlipSide Board Rider wave machine, where park-goers can surf a static wave. Tickets can be purchased at the Cafe Shop.
