TICKETS for Australia's most well-known reality television series - Big Brother - have gone on sale.

Just like for the eight seasons of the show that ran from 2001 to 2008, fans are expected to flock to live shows at theme park Dreamworld, which will once again host the series in a purpose-built compound.

The previous incarnation of Big Brother, hosted for seven series by Gretel Killeen, was a smash hit and brought thousands to the Gold Coast from around Australia to share in a bit of the fame and glitz enjoyed by the mostly temporarily-famous housemates.

This year the re-booting of the program will be hosted by Sonia Kruger on its new home Channel 9.

Tickets are on sale for the launch show on August 12 and two live specials on August 14 and 19.

Dreamworld has a range of entry tickets designed to suit everyone, including and Unlimited World Pass that offers free admission to the Big Brother Experience, priority access to show tickets, Housemate meet and greets, and up to 50% off Big Brother Live Shows.

Pass holders will also have the chance to win money-can't-buy Big Brother prizes.

Purchase an Unlimited World Pass online for $109.99 or grab it at the gate for $119.99 for endless access to Dreamworld and WhiteWater World until 30 June, 2013 plus all your Big Brother exclusives.

Big Brother Live Shows are filmed from Dreamworld each week and you can be part of the audience.

This is your chance to experience the excitement and energy of the Big Brother phenomenon, feel the thrill of an eviction or special live show, be there to see one of your favourite housemates live in person as they emerge from the house and maybe get your face on television.

In the Big Brother Experience, you can see how the show works behind the scenes, drop in for a photo in the replica Diary Room Chair, book Big Brother show tickets, meet a Big Brother evictee on Sundays or enjoy the Big Brother Tour.

On the tour you can get a souvenir photo in the replica Diary Room chair before taking a walk through a simulated camera run to see how all the action in the house is captured.

You can then visit the Big Brother studios to get an exclusive look at the stage where the live shows are filmed.

The Big Brother Tour is free for Unlimited World Pass holders, or $10 for general park guests and all photos taken throughout the experience are available for purchase.
