A Gold Coast stay-cation for the whole family

Want to get away without going away? Yup, the stay-cation is THE travel must-do of 2021 and, luckily, South East Queensland is the best place to do it!

With easy access to the region’s best theme parks yet with all the peacefulness of the bush, Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park is the perfect spot for a stay-cation. And with a raft of recent upgrades, it a top destination this summer.


The spacious holiday park has revamped its dog park to include two separate off-leash areas—one for large and one for small dogs. The park also has dog friendly cabins (where two pooches can sleep inside with the rest of the family), a puppy pampering palace, and doggy day care (for those moments when you can’t take pup with you).

Nibbles Terrace, the new alfresco dining area at this Big4, is now fully dog friendly, so your furry friends don’t have to eat alone. It’s the perfect place for a morning coffee, or a sumptuous meal with the whole family in a relaxed outdoor setting.

As well as being paradise for your pooch, this Gold Coast destination is also splash-tactic fun for the kids. With 317 metres of water slides and a giant tipping bucket, the waterpark is the tallest play structure at any holiday park in the Southern Hemisphere.

The epic waterpark has over 40 interactive play features, including a multi-lane body slide, four aqua tube slides and one compact slide, and it can be zoned into smaller play areas to suit kids of all ages.

The waterpark is kept at an ambient temperature throughout the day, ensuring it is always the perfect place to play. If kids prefer to stay dry, the family friendly park has added a half-size basketball court to its growing range of outdoor activity areas.
