LEADING holiday website Holidays With Kids has released the results of its 2013 Readers’ Choice Survey with Palmer Coolum Resort earning top ten status in the prestigious poll.
The survey’s scope covers the most popular family holiday destinations and more than 4000 users of the website cast their votes to establish the winners. Over a year in the making, the Holidays With Kids survey is the most comprehensive family travel award system in Australia.

Footsteps in AsiaAs expected, Queensland proved very popular but five-star Palmer Coolum Resort was the only Sunshine Coast destination to feature in the top ten.

In its summary Holidays With Kids says the resort “has been a long-time favourite with Aussie families heading to the Sunshine Coast. Spreading over 150 hectares of prime Queensland real estate, the resort offers everything a family could want, from lazing at the beach club or one of nine pools, to sports including tennis, archery and golf on a championship course. The kids’ club makes sure the youngest kids can get in on the action, with arts and crafts, storytelling and games all available, but they can also visit Palmer Coolum Resort’s most unique feature, the dinosaur park.”

They added: “All our finalists should be proud of the fact that so many happy holidaymakers had such a positive experience that they took the time to nominate them for excellence. These hotels and resorts have managed to exceed the expectations of their guests in just about every area. Whether for outstanding customer service, facilities that are a cut above, the high standard of accommodation or the range of family friendly activities on offer, each resort stands out from the pack and offers an experience families love enough to rave about.”

Palmer Coolum Resort General Manager, Bill Schoch, says the award is just reward for the efforts of management and staff who work tirelessly to deliver an outstanding holiday experience to guests and visitors.

“We’re delighted to be awarded top ten status in the Holidays With Kids survey and our superb staff deserve and enormous amount of credit,” Mr Schoch said.

“We also take pride in being the only Sunshine Coast resort to make the top ten and I’m sure our plans for the future will make us even more attractive to families as we move forward.

“The Palmersaurus dinosaur park and the Palmer Motorama vintage car museum are two new attractions that will be fully operational by the end of this year and will surely consolidate our position as the region’s top family holiday destination,” he said.
