Dreamworld's newest tiger cubs are lapping up the attention.

IN BETWEEN occasional catnaps, this pair of frisky feline sisters had a ball settling into their new digs on the Gold Coast. 

The rare 15-week-old white tiger cubs showed no signs of jetlag despite travelling from their birthplace in Japan to Dreamworld this week.

They pounced on their first touch of fame on Wednesday as media and local dignitaries lapped up the little big cats' first public appearances.

They are living in a special quarantine den and will meet the rest of the Dreamworld tiger family in mid-March.

The unnamed cubs will go on public display on Friday.
