Easter’s a great time to take a sneaky break from the hectic start to the working year. It hits you like a sledgehammer when you realise the season is changing, we’re nearly into May and where on earth has the year gone?

Whether you’re away as a family or going to visit family, part of the fun is planning some activities that can really add some adventure and fun into your Easter holiday in Queensland.

If you’re looking for theme parks and zoos in Australia, you simply cannot go past the Gold Coast for the best theme parks and the Sunshine Coast for zoos.

Zoos

Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast is definitely one of the biggest highlights in Queensland if you’re travelling with kids. The main attraction there are the crocs, although there’s also a significant sprinkling of koala bears, kangaroos, reptiles, and other animals native to Australia. If your child is looking for more interaction, or if you’re travelling with a smaller child who would like a milder share of spectacle and play, you should go to the Kiah Park in Gympie. There are also cruises in the area which allows you to view Australia’s water wilderness. The Caloundra Cruise which explores the Pelican Waters is a favourite.

Theme Parks

For the kids who are dedicated adrenalin junkies, they will love Queensland’s Gold Coast and their significant array of extremely impressive theme parks. The major are almost next door neighbours, so you can stay anywhere on the strip and still find all of this theme parks accessible. There’s the outback spectacular, Movie world, Wet ‘n’ Wild and Dream World in this precinct with Sea world amongst the plush resorts at Southport.

Dream World, which is most known for its Big 6 Thrill Rides spans about 30 hectares and is a hit with bigger kids. Sea World is a fast favourite among smaller kids. They can watch live dolphin shows here, visit the Shark Bay, and frequent the Polar Bear Shores. There is also a new 4D theatre showing Planet SOS. This show orients kids about the necessity of saving the environment so that these precious creatures are protected. The Sea World is actually more than just a theme park. It’s also a clear reflection of Australia’s passion to save the environment and raise more eco-responsible citizens.

So whatever your choice – get out there – get yourself a multi park ticket and give the kids a thrill they’ll never forget.

Art and Craft

IF you’re really into the spirit of Easter, you could go prepared with some art and craft materials that are sure to satisfy any bored youngster – particularly if the weather turns.

Check out some of the great ideas at Kidspot.com.au. A lot of city councils will also run events activities that are free for the kids. Check out these sites for some inspiration for the kids and big kids too!
