Prepare for the biggest sugar rush of your life, because Sugar Republic has finally arrived on the Gold Coast.
This incredible pop-up Insta-museum is dedicated to the celebration of ice cream, lollies and all things sweet through a series of amazing sensory rooms.
Almost 100,000 sugar-loving people have visited since it launched a year ago, and now the Gold Coast is the sweet-spot, boasting incredible new installations and visual eye-candy to excite the senses.
Taking over Pacific Fair Shopping Centre until 28 July, Sugar Republic Gold Coast will take you on a nostalgic journey across three candy-filled spaces.
At The Resort you’ll sink into a bubble gum ball pit, visit the candy-coloured balloonerie and relax with a soft serve ice cream covered in sprinkles whilst listening to a 50s sugar-inspired playlist.
Next, stop by the Selfie Store to relive your teenage years, posing with neon art, tinstallations, mini mart art and 80s-inspired selfie art walls. Devour freshly-made fairy floss in the Sweet Dreams bedroom before exploring three surprise-filled changing rooms.
Finally, it’s time to hit Candyland, a giant factory-like pink space rising out from the car park. Here, you’ll relive your childhood sugar highs as you jump into a huge sprinkles ball pit, jump out of the iconic giant birthday cake, take a confetti shower, dance inside a human-sized gumball machine, play licorice tic tac toe, swing inside a popcorn box, snuggle up in the Honey Bear room, sink into the Big Gum Bubble and enjoy the sweetest wall art.
Tickets will set you back $35 but if you ask us, that’s a small price to pay for a sugar wonderland and weeks work of Insta content.
We’ll see you by the candy bar!
