Planning a family holiday? Have you taken the kids whale-watching or to see wild dolphins? Have you tried sand tobogganing or hot air ballooning? Experience all this and more in Queensland, Australia when you plan a trip with PriceBreaker!
If you want a break from the bustling city, why not consider Queensland for a vacation of sun, sand, sea and unforgettable experiences for the whole family? Queensland is the second largest state in Australia and home to three fab family destinations Brisbane, Gold Coast, and Cairns, the jumping-off point to the Great Barrier Reef! Here are three fun ideas for your next trip to Australia:
1. Tangalooma: see the sand dunes, dolphins and whales
Tangalooma, located on the world’s third largest sand island, Moreton Island, is just a boat ride away from Brisbane and worth a visit for two nights if you plan to visit Brisbane. Stay at Tangalooma Island Resort, the perfect location for those whose love the island life! From here you’ll get to catch the seasonal whale-watching cruise, available from June to October to see these magnificent creatures! One of the other highlights of a trip here has to be the chance to see wild bottlenose dolphins up close. Watch your little ones light up as they get up close with these adorably playful marine animals.
Other fun activities on offer include sand tobogganing (kids will love this thrilling activity), ATV quad bike tours and snorkelling the Tangalooma Wrecks and so much more. Tangalooma is recommended for families with kids 7 years and up, so that they can take part in most of the island activities.
2. Cairns: amazing snorkelling along the Great Barrier Reef
If your family loves nature, then join an outer reef tour from Cairns to experience the world’s largest coral reef system, the Great Barrier Reef! Get up close and personal with colourful corals, abundant fish life, friendly resident sea turtles and Maori wrasse.
There are a couple of ways you can explore the Great Barrier Reef. Other than snorkelling, you can consider taking a helicopter ride, a helmet dive or embark on a Dreamtime Snorkel with Indigenous Cultural Guides as they share with you Dreamtime stories that have been passed down over tens of thousands of years. You will get to hear from marine biologists, dive instructors, qualified lifeguards and cruise attendants as they share their passion for the Great Barrier Reef and strive to make sure that you make unforgettable memories with your family.
Recommended for water babies and families with older kids, Cairns is also a soft adventure capital where families can indulge in activities such as white water rafting and hot air ballooning.
3. Gold Coast: Australia’s favourite playground
With five major theme parks to choose from, Gold Coast is the place to be if you have kids who love rides, animal encounters and meeting their superheroes. Whether it’s a waterpark like Wet’n’Wild or a movie theme park like Movie World, there’s something that everyone will enjoy.
For the true thrill-seekers, Sea World recently unveiled their newest ride – The New Atlantis – that transforms the park into a new era with three world-class rides, including The Vortex, Leviathan, a wooden rollercoaster with exhilarating turns and Trident, the 42-metre tall landmark that defies gravity. For unparalleled views of the stunning Gold Coast region, take on SkyPoint climb, Australia’s highest external building climb!
For animal lovers, don’t miss out on a visit to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, where your kids can get a bird’s eye view of the vets hard at work at the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital in addition to shows and attractions. For thrill-seekers, hop on an exhilarating jet boat ride and enjoy a top-notch sightseeing experience. Gold Coast is a destination recommended for families of all ages!
