Gold Coast trip - School Holidays

We popped up to the Gold Coast for a few days last week to visit some family and take in a few theme parks.  It was the perfect weather and a lovely little break.
We arrived Tuesday morning and headed straight to Movie World from the airport. We had a wonderful day there as there was something for everyone. Tiny rides for the little ones and the rollercoasters and scarier rides for Finn & Simon. Jasper also went on his first rollercoaster and loved it. It was also great to have the characters walking around and snap a pic with them. Batman was a hit!

After a huge day we checked into our hotel, the QT and had a delicious buffet dinner at Bazaar. One of the best I've seen. Love a buffet with kids, no waiting!

We loved the hotel. So cool but kids were made to feel welcome. We saw heaps of families there. The room was really spacious. We had a King Suite and Noah was in a portacot in our room while Finn and Jasper shared the sofabed. It worked perfectly for us.

The bathroom was huge and the bath was lovely and deep with a fab view of the ocean. We would definitely stay here again as it was a great location too.

The next morning we headed off to Sea World.
Another day of rides. I went on my first rollercoaster in years.
I screamed all the way but it wasn't too bad!

The highlight of the day was meeting and touching Friday the Sea Lion. It was a really hot day so we spent a couple of hours in the water park here. Perfect! 

Our last day was spent with a few hours at Wet n Wild before we had to catch the plane home. This was a bit more relaxing then the other days as we could just splash around and our favourite part was Calypso River. You grab an inflatable tube and float around the river. We could all enjoy this together.

We all had such a great time. Have you been to the Gold Coast lately? Are you planning a trip?

all photos my own


  1. Looks fab, we have not been and I really would rather love to do so.. even more so now seeing your fab photos!!

  2. Great pictures, looks like you all had a great time. I've never been to the Gold Coast, so hopefully I get there at some stage!

  3. Oh I know that screaming on the rides! We just went to the water bom park in Bali - apparently my screams could be heard all over the park! Half the fun i say!

  4. Looks like a lovely little break! We went to the GC about this time last year. Love it there! The accommodation you stayed in looked really lovely - will keep that one in mind for next time!
