So you’ve told the kids you’re off to the theme parks and they’re as excited as Kanye looking into the mirror. It’s time to plan your accommodation but before you freak out about spending ages in the hire car crammed with nappy bags, snacks and hopped-up-kids, fear not – this list of theme-park-accessible accommodation has got you sorted.
BIG4 GOLD COAST HOLIDAY PARK AND MOTEL
This is the closest you’ll get to the northern theme parks so you won’t hear ‘are we there yet’ from the back seat. Book your tickets through the Holiday Park and score great packages, VIP access and special offers.
TREASURE ISLAND NRMA HOLIDAY PARK
There are encouragement awards on your kid’s assembly, and then there are Australia-wide voting awards like TripAdvisor. One will make you proud and the other will help you reward your bolstered bubbas with the #1 family hotel in Australia for 2017. Only 15 – 20 minutes away max from all the theme parks and boasting four resort style pools, Treasure Island totally tops a gold star.
TURTLE BEACH RESORT
With their own private shuttle bus, Turtle Beach Resort will get you to and from the theme parks and airport direct, without the need to stop for drop offs along the way. Hello VIP treatment.
SEA WORLD RESORT
Feel right at home amongst the sea creatures with your room RIGHT NEXT DOOR to Seaworld. Guests are treated to an exclusive dolphin show, character meet-and-greets at breakfast, kids club and Spongebob LED light show and great deals on theme park tickets.
ASHMORE PALMS HOLIDAY VILLAGE
Go from relaxed villa vibes to excited theme park giggles in under 20 minutes flat. Ashmore Palms Holiday Village offers ample space for your car and heaps of activities for the kids so the day after your outing will be just as fun.
This place is a kid’s play centre in itself. Once you tear them away from the ice skating rink, pool slides and activities, the bus stop is right out the front of the resort – ready and waiting to take you on your next adventure.
