Water Baby

Splash, slide and flip into fun at the BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Park. With an 800L water tipping bucket set in a permanent water park, perfect for families that love endless water play. The Holiday Park also features paths for scootering, a playground with jumping pillow and so much more. ‘I’m bored’ should be a statement of the past!

For the parents, feel free to relax by the pool, enjoy a meal on the sunset deck, hit the gym, try your arm at tennis or hit the shuffleboard table before the family retires to a villa or safari tent (or your own caravan and camping site!). Villas are available from studio to four-bedroom or luxury while the safari tent sleeps 2 or 4. Depending on which child-friendly accommodation choice you opt for, you could enjoy your very own kitchen, barbecue and alfresco area, air-conditioning and a Smart TV.

If that isn’t enough to get you locking in your next holiday, BIG4 Sandstone Point Holiday Resort is situated in walking distance to the award-winning Sandstone Point Hotel and overlooks the stunning natural beauty of Pumicestone Passage. So, for a luxurious child-friendly accommodation head to the BIG4 for the best family holiday near Brisbane.

The Golfer

T-off these school holidays at the Fairways Golf & Beach Retreat situated on the beautiful Bribie Island. Take a break from city life and travel 45 minutes north of Brisbane to the only sand island connected to the mainland by bridge to enjoy a peaceful and luxurious holiday. Connected to the ocean by a walkway, guests need only take a 10-minute stroll through unspoilt and tranquil nature with goannas, kookaburras, and natural flora and fauna, down to a secluded stretch of sandy white beaches. Just you, the bay, the dolphins, and an uninterrupted view that will instantly take the stress away!

Head back to the Retreat to enjoy free putt-putt golf (great for keeping the kids entertained) or a dip in the heated outdoor swimming pool before cooking lunch on the poolside barbecues. Head next door to the Bribie Island Golf Club for a full game of golf on beautiful greens or take a 10-minute drive down to Banksia Beach to Pacific Harbour Golf & Country Club for a game by the ocean.

When the day is over, you can take to the comfort of your self-contained, airconditioned 1-bedroom apartment or 4-bedroom Penthouse suite for the best night’s rest you will ever have.
