BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort in Airlie Beach brings back the popular Grandparent’s Week event from 1- 8 July where the focus is on families spending time together and enjoying the quintessential outdoor Australian lifestyle. It’s a time for grandparents to delight in creating quality time with their children and grandchildren. As an added bonus, kids stay free in cabins for the whole school holidays from 26 June to 11 July.
Winter is the perfect time of year for families to make the most of the July school holidays and meet up with grandparents holidaying in tropical Northern Queensland. Resort owner Naomi McKinnon says, “We love the return of our older southern visitors who head to the Whitsundays every winter. The school holidays provide a great opportunity for families to fly in, visit the grandparents, and share some time together. Our aim is to create a festive atmosphere and help create a happy holiday everyone will remember.”
With good old-fashioned fun and games and a full schedule of activities that cover multi-generational interests, everyone will find something enjoyable to do. If it’s a bit of carefree relaxation you need, parents can enjoy some time together while Grandma joins the kids on a scavenger hunt and Grandpa’s organising an inter-family tournament on the mini-golf course. Gorgeous, warm sunny days make it a pleasure to relish an outdoor pancake breakfast, lounge by the resort pool or chill out with a blissful hour in the massage pavilion. Perfect balmy nights set the scene for organised social activities including outdoor movies, a Wii Just Dance Disco and the ‘Battle of the Generations’ trivia night.
With over 30 major tourism awards to their name, BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort offers Airlie Beach self-contained accommodation and a host of activities in a 10 hectare tropical oasis. Energetic kids can keep busy during Grandparent’s Week with scavenger hunts, tennis, mini golf or trying one of the many sporting activities available in the resort. For those who enjoy gentler pursuits there are classes in mosaicking, beading, loom banding, painting and biscuit decorating.
There is accommodation to suit all budgets and facilities including a heated lagoon-style swimming pool, water slides, a full-size tennis court, adventure playground, jumping pillows, an impressive 18-hole mini-golf course, outdoor cinema, pedal carts, modern amenities, free BBQs, camp kitchen and wireless internet. BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort offers the best location for a fun, value-packed, memorable Whitsunday family holiday.
