Schools out, so head to the warm Whitsundays this winter!

June 3, 2017 Resort News No Comments Email Email

Schools out, so where better to head than the Whitsundays in winter? The June/July school holidays are the perfect time to make the most of the sub-tropical climate and BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort in Airlie Beach has great deals and a multitude of activities to keep the whole family happy.

BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort offers the most family-friendly Airlie Beach accommodation and from Friday 23 June to Sunday 16 July kids stay free in cabins, when staying with their parents, for a minimum of three nights throughout the school holidays. There are nine different styles of cabins available to suit different family sizes and budgets, including eight brand new deluxe studio cabins, arriving just in time for the holidays.

All the usual onsite activities are on offer including the 32-metre lagoon style pool (heated throughout winter), two water slides, two giant jumping pillows, 18-hole mini golf, outdoor cinema, pedal carts, an Animal Park, Kid’s Club and a special holiday activity guide. Pony rides, ‘Meet and Greet” animal feeding, discover scuba diving, craft-making activities, photo trails, word games and sports competitions keep kids on the run all day long. And if they haven’t collapsed in an exhausted heap by sunset each night, balmy tropical evenings include outdoor family movies, social gatherings and a special weekly Wii Just Dance disco.

And if all that’s not enough, the resort is just about to open a massive waterslide park, with a choice of 13 different twisting and turning water slides to take kids on a whole new adventure. Specially designed for young families, the massive overall area of the waterslide park will be equivalent to an Olympic swimming pool and features mini slides including a frog and an octopus, tipping bucket, water features for toddlers and a 300mm deep splash pool.

Resort owner Greg McKinnon says, “We have been very busy since Cyclone Debbie getting the resort back to top condition and building the waterslide park and new cabins. We think parents and young children will absolutely love these additional fun waterslides. It’s been a long-held dream of mine and I believe we’ve created a spectacular Whitsunday Waterpark paradise.”

Set in 26 acres of tropical gardens, the resort is located just minutes away from Airlie Beach and a host of superb tour experiences to the natural wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, Whitehaven Beach and the colourful fringing reefs of the islands. Besides swim gear, families like to pack scooters to enjoy the boardwalk from Cannonvale to Airlie Beach, experience the National Park rainforest walks, go bird and wildlife spotting, discover magic picnic spots, throw a line in and enjoy the stunning natural environment. With a shopping centre walking distance from the resort, modern amenities, free BBQs, camp kitchen and wireless internet, you really do have everything you need at your fingertips.
