It’s the last week of Queensland’s school holidays. The weather is perfect, so what do we do? Here are my top 5 picks. If you have more, please feel free to share.

  1. Canoe to David Fleay Wildlife Park – enjoy a paddle along Tallebudgera Creek. Stop off for a BBQ lunch, and a Ranger guided tour of the park. For children 8 years and up, and families. 9am-2pm on Thursday the 29th of September. EMAIL:info.tallebudgera@nprsr.qld.gov.au
  2.  Venture out to the Gold Coast’s Hinterland and explore some of the amazing waterfalls or kid friendly hikes. My suggestions would be: Curtis Falls at Tamborine Mountain, Twin Falls at Springbrook or even Killarney Glen; the amazing heart-shaped water hole

    CURTIS FALLS
    Killarney Glen
    KILLARNEY GLEN
    Twin Falls, Springbrook, Gold Coast, Queesland
    TWIN FALLS
  3. Cross the border ‘Day Trip’ – Take a trip out to Byron. Stop for brunch and coffee at Byron Bay Farm. Then make your way into town. Stop here or keep going. Great place to stock up on food is at Green Garage Convenience Store. They have a well-priced coffee shop, where you can grab sandwiches, sushi, nibbles and drinks. Take them with you and make your way to the beach. My favorite is the beach in front of the Broken Head Caravan Park. MAP byron-bay-farm-2 byron-bay-farm-1byron-bay
  4. Rock Climbing at Tallebudgera Recreation Centre – A fun outdoor vertical rock face over 9.5 meters high. All harnesses and safety ropes are automatic allowing every attending to participate. Entry is just $11 per person and includes all equipment. Suitable for anyone aged five years and over.img_2697
  5. Sea World in the wet. I know that sounds totally wrong. But if you have a locals pass and don’t care about getting wet then this is the best time to go. No lineups just lots of turns!
