I have to give this design a low grade because it is so plain and basic. I appreciate that there is a map of Australia which helps to show where the water parks are located but I think there could have been few more images included or at least some more color to help this infographic standout. If I were skimming through infographics online this one would not catch my eye.
Infographic Information: B
I like that the information does highlight the features of each park and give the times of year it is open. I was surprised to see that most of the parks are open during our winter here in the U.S. Now I know when to travel to Australia. It seems their summer is during our winter so when I need a break from the cold and darkness I can head to warm Australia to enjoy their water parks.
