There are lots of fun things to keep the kids entertained during your stay. We have Casual Climbing at our indoor rock wall on Saturdays and over the school holidays (Gold Coast only), as well as lots of fun school holiday activities at our Coast Club program. We also have sporting equipment available if you want to shoot hoops or have a hit on the tennis courts.
