The Gold Coast holiday park where wellness meets fun

Holiday parks are the saviour of the family vacation. With stacks of activities for the kids, and affordable accommodation and dining, there’s no better place to holiday with the fam. Well, now you can also give yourself a little grown-up TLC! Because Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park has added a range of mind and body wellness activities to its guest services.

“Wellness is becoming more important. So we wanted to make it possible to weave it into your holiday too,” explains Candy Workman, Marketing Manager at Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park.

This innovative holiday park is consistently leading the way in family tourism, evident in its recent multi-million dollar refurbishment that included an epic water park and the addition of all the luxuries of a resort, whilst keeping that quintessential magic of a holiday park.

“We cater so much for the children here, we wanted to add something extra for the parents too,” says Candy.

“It’s not just about coming here and enjoying some quality time with your family. You can do a bit of mind and body work as well while you here.”


What wellness activities are available at Big 4 Gold Coast Holiday Park?

To kickstart the wellness programming, guests at Big4 Gold Coast can now enjoy weekly yoga.

“We have yoga classes in the activity centre on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. This is for ages 16 and up, and caters for all abilities,” Candy says.

“Our yoga teacher also does a kids’ dance class once a week. This get little ones moving and burning off their energy, so that they can chill out when they’ve got time with their parents.”

Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park also now has an onsite masseuse once a week, which is proving very popular.

“She is already booked up in advance, so we hope to expand that service soon!”

Outdoor fun and games

Of course, health and wellness isn’t just about yoga and massages (as heavenly as they are!). On top of that, you have 32 acres brimming with outdoor fun for the whole family to enjoy.

“At the back of the park we’ve got the outdoor games. There is a huge field, so you can bring your own cricket set or run around and play tiggy! There are also bocce lanes set up there,” says Candy.

“We’ve got two large footpool areas and frisbee golf down the back—which is always a family favourite. And we have a full size basketball court so the whole family can go down and play. There are also pedal cars down there too, which the kids love.”

If kids love to cycle, they can bring their bikes along so that they can cruise around the park. Even your fur baby’s activity is catered for, with two huge dog parks (one for big dogs and one for little dogs). where your pups can run around and get their exercise.

As families are increasingly holidaying with grandparents, Big4 Gold Coast Holiday Park recognises that it is important to offer activities and wellness for every generation.

“There is a saltwater creek where families can go fishing and enjoy some quality time together, and lovely areas to walk and enjoy the beautiful outdoors,” says Candy.

“The most important thing is you’re outside in the fresh air and the sunshine, unplugged, and having quality time as a family. These things are a huge part of wellbeing in families today,” says Candy.

Don’t forget the huuuuuuge water park at Big 4 Gold Coast Holiday Park!

After a massage and a yoga class, there’s nothing that invigorates the body and soul more than a swim!

“You’ve got the pool for a relaxing swim, and then also the water park for some epic fun for the family!” Candy says.

With 317 metres of water slides and a giant tipping bucket, the waterpark at Big4 Gold Coast is the tallest play structure at any holiday park in the Southern Hemisphere.

And this giant waterpark has something for little kids and big kids, and everyone in-between.

“The kids can spend hours playing on the slides and there’s always screams of delight from under the tipping bucket when it goes. Parents love to water slides too. I’ve even seen 60-year-olds cruising down there, so it’s for every generation!”
