With the infamous Annie's Banana Split Waffles (grilled bananas, vanilla waffle, peanut soil, vanilla ice-cream, churros, raspberry paint, caramel popcorn and chocolate fudge sauce) and Crazy Shakes (Krispy Kreme, Popcorn, Funfetti, Wonka and Crazy Unicorn inspired shakes- dont' worry, holiday calories don't count!

Do you have a need for speed?

After a delicious breakfast, it’s time to get some adrenaline pumping. It's time to hit the water on a thrill-seeking guided jet ski tour through Bribie Island's waterways and out onto Moreton Bay.
