BIG4 ADVENTURE WHITSUNDAY RESORT, AIRLIE BEACH, QLD
This multi-award-winning destination is hugely popular with families as it caters for kids of all ages. You have the option to choose from a wide range of affordable accommodation options, from camping to luxurious three-bedroom condos. There’s also plenty for kids to see and do, and the majority of activities on offer are free. The resort boasts a 32m pool – the largest in Airlie Beach – tennis court, animal park, adventure playground and two jumping pillows.
If you want a break from the littlies, the resort offers Toddler Time sessions for kids aged 18 months to five years, and a Kids Club for children aged four to 12 years. The kids will have a blast making new friends and enjoying games and arts and crafts sessions in a safe environment, while mum and dad relax by the pool.
There’s so much to do you probably won’t even need to leave the resort, but if you do feel like a change of scene, you can explore Airlie Beach, which has more than 50 cafes, bars and restaurants to choose from, as well as weekly markets and self-drive tours in the surrounding rainforests and beaches. And of course, the Great Barrier Reef, Whitsunday Islands and beautiful Whitehaven Beach are just a short trip away.
