Another Big Brother memory is no more with Dreamworld demolishing its amphitheatre which was home to famed eviction shows.
The Dreamworld Amphitheatre was originally built in the mid-1980s and became home to Big Brother eviction shows on 10 from 2001 – 2008, then 2012- 2014 on Nine.
It was the scene of the infamous “Free the Refugees” eviction when housemate Merlin Luck hijacked the show to make a social statement around immigration. It made headlines around the country.
But it was also the stage for tears, prizes, proposals (Benjamin Norris), eviction errors (Bree Amer), zany costumes (audience members with Mike Goldman) and a mass bum dance for Sarah-Marie Fedele.
The City of Gold Coast Council approved the demolition of the amphitheatre and adjacent buildings last week.
In June a dilapidated Big Brother house were razed by fire, having been trashed previously by vandals.
