From dazzling big budget theme & water parks, a wildlife sanctuary and small, hilariously kitsch museums, your family will have plenty to keep you busy in Surfer’s Paradise!

Your home for the next three nights is Peppers Broadbeach. Soaring high above Broadbeach's premier shopping and dining precinct, Peppers Broadbeach offers luxury and a perfect setting for families visiting Gold Coast.

Your luxury Two Bedroom Suite features generous living spaces with exceptional interior design throughout, premium European appliances, gourmet minibar, iPod docks and boasts panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean.

The afternoon is at leisure for you to explore the area, or enjoy the resort’s amenities.

No meals are included today.

Day 2 – Learn to Surf & Beach Day   

Learning to surf is a must for any visitor to the Gold Coast. Conditions at Broadbeach are ideal for surf lessons. The water is warm, the beaches are patrolled and this is of course, Surfer’s Paradise, one of Australia’s most iconic surf destinations!

Your surfing lesson is designed for the entire family to learn together and includes the use of a long sleeve rash shirt or wetsuit, a soft beginner surf board and 2 hours of instruction and fun.

Following your surfing lesson, enjoy the rest of the day on the beach or enjoy the attractions in Surfer’s Paradise or your resort’s amenities.

This morning, your family will experience an exhilarating adventure at Tamborine Mountain – Australia’s largest, highest and fastest guided zipline tour.

Day 4 - Gold Coast to Byron Bay

This morning, your family will have a private transfer to the laid-back beachside community of Byron Bay on the North Coast of New South Wales.  Byron Bay's endless beaches and reliable surf breaks have been attracting surfers for years. But today its beaches draw visitors for meditation, walking, adventures and sheltered swimming as much as their tubular waves.

While the beaches right in Byron Bay can be quite busy, away from the town you can find miles of pristine, uncrowded beaches, lush tropical rainforests, tranquil rivers and lakes, and dramatic volcanic hinterland.  You can snorkel and dive coral reefs or watch playful dolphins and majestic whales while kayaking or on a boat cruise.

Your home for the next three nights is the beautiful The Byron at Byron Resort & Spa. Set within an 18-hectare rainforest, 15 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Byron Bay, the resort strikes the perfect balance between relaxed luxury and unforgettable service and is a perfect base for exploring this amazing part of Australia.

You will stay in two, One Bedroom Standard Suites which are adjacent to each other. These suites are located by the tennis court and nearest to the central resort facilities. They are child-friendly and predominantly on the ground floor, featuring a separate lounge and dining area, fully equipped kitchen and two enclosed balconies.

Relax your body and mind with free daily yoga classes or immerse yourself in the outdoors, with endless walking trails through the rainforest. Take a guided walk with the resort’s ranger and learn about the rainforest’s history and unique eco-system. Unwind poolside with signature cocktails and pool service by the 25-meter infinity pool. Or relax with a soothing massage in the resort’s spa.

Enjoy dining at the on-site restaurant, with seasonal menus based on a farm-to-plate philosophy accompanied by an extensive selection of local and international wines.

Breakfast is included today. 

Days 5  - Whale Watching in  Byron Bay

Wake up in a rain forest to the sounds of tropical birds chirping and smell the salt of the ocean.  Then stroll to the resort’s open air restaurant where you will enjoy a delicious breakfast before heading out on your day’s adventure.

Today you will experience one of the world’s most incredible animal migrations on a whale watching cruise that brings you up close to humpback whales, with the amazing Byron Bay landscape as a backdrop. Humpback whales, dolphins, turtles and a variety of amazing sea birds await you on this boat cruise.

Breakfast is included today. 

Day 6 – Byron Bay Exploring

Today is at leisure for you to explore on your own or relax at the resort. A spa treatment might be in the cards for today!

Breakfast is included today. 

Day 7 – Byron Bay to Spicers Peak Lodge

This morning your family will depart Byron Bay on an exhilarating helicopter flight from the coast up to Queensland’s Scenic Rim, an oasis bursting with ancient flora and the lush World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest.

Your home for the next three nights is Spicers Peak Lodge, stunningly situated on a mountaintop in Queensland’s Scenic Rim. Here, in Australia’s highest non-alpine lodge, relaxation and revitalization come naturally.

Your three night stay will be in Spicers Gap, a luxury 2-bedroom cottage, with wonderful views over Spicers Gap. The cottage also features an outdoor Jacuzzi and a beautiful wood burning fireplace. The local rock wallabies are known for making a daily visit to your cottage. They are so much fun to watch!
