Gold Coast Hotel welcomes app for kids

A brand new app was launched at a Gold Coast hotel on Friday, made for kids by kids.

Peppers Broadbeach took out Trip Advisor’s 2014 prize for Best Hotel for Families, and has now welcomed ‘Bound Round’  the world’s only digital travel guide aimed at showing children how much there is to see and do.

The one of a kind application will be available free of charge on complimentary in-house IPads at Peppers Broadbeach.


‘Bound Round’ lets kids explore the attractions and activities in a destination through videos, photos and games that have been made by children their own age.

The app is aimed at 8-12 year olds and founder and CEO Janeece Keller says it will help families plan their holidays better.

Research from Mastercard shows 50% of families wish they could redo a family holiday because it’s so difficult to plan and select activities that everyone will enjoy in advance,” Ms Keller said.

“Combine that with the fact that tweens place more importance on their peer recommendations than their parents, and it just made sense to create a platform where kids could explore what other kids think is great to do in a destination.”

Bound Round is designed for 8-12 year olds to play with before and during their visit to their holiday destination.
