Hello,

4

Creating lasting memories with the ones closest to you is utterly priceless. We understand that no two families are the same, so tell us what you need for your ultimate holiday (and the kids requests) and we’ll tailor-make it just for you. From chasing the endless summer sun through the South Pacific to theme parks and cuddly koalas across the ditch in Queensland. Sprinkle a dash of fairy dust and let the magic happen in Disneyland or go on a hunt to find the real Simba on an Africa safari. These are just some of our family favourites to get you dreaming. And remember to dream big‌ we know your little ones do!

KIDS AND QUEENSLAND GO TOGETHER LIKE JANDALS AT A BARBECUE – IT’S A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN. PUT ASIDE YOUR PATRIOTISM AND HEAD TO THE GOLD COAST OR SUNSHINE COAST.

T

here’s almost nothing kids love more than theme parks, and very few things parents crave more than a little bit of quiet time

while on holiday. On a trip to the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, you can have both! How? By tiring your kids out with the wide variety of activities on offer in this warm, sunny part of the world and sneaking in some rest and relaxation while they’re at it. In the glitzy Gold Coast and relaxed, refreshing Sunshine Coast, everyone’s a winner. Both the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast are just a quick flight from home, whether you fly direct or stop off in Brisbane for a taste of big city life en route to your final destination. If you pick your accommodation wisely, you can organise to be greeted to a fridge full of pre-selected food at your apartment, making it incredibly easy to settle in to your home away from home. Once you get over the magic of a full fridge (when was the last time that happened?!), it’s time to start exploring.

AUSSIE’S SILVER LINING – THE GOLD COAST You’ve promised the kids theme parks and now it’s time to deliver. Luckily, the Gold Coast’s selection has become increasingly sophisticated over time, offering rides and attractions that parents will love almost as much as their offspring. Head to Wet'n'Wild and float down the decidedly subdued river at Calypso Beach and pretend you’re on a tropical island, or pick up the courage to race your kids down the Super 8 slide – remember, no matter what the result is, your kids will always win. Sea World, Movie World and Dreamworld are also worth a visit, with plenty of educational and outdoorsy elements to keep everyone happy. Of course, you’ll also find gut-wrenching rollercoasters taunting you at every turn, but those are best left to the kids, right? Prepare to become smitten with koalas at 20

Cool off after all that adventure on one of the Coast’s patrolled beaches, which are lined with surf clubs for easy, tasty and affordable family meals. If you’ve got a Sporty Spice in your family you may wish to treat them to a surfing lesson, while jet boating and jet skiing may be appealing for adrenalin-lovers. Leave them to it while you relax with a cocktail in one hand and a book in the other, content in the knowledge that your kids are falling in love with the Gold Coast.

Head to the scenic hinterland on Wednesday or Saturday morning and pick up locally-grown fresh produce to re-stock your fridge with, alongside freshly baked breads and cheeses – to go with your wine, of course.
