Much-loved Gold Coast holiday spot named ‘Best Family Resort in Australia’

With a massive waterpark, ice-rink and kids club all under one roof, there is no doubting why the Paradise Resort on the Gold Coast has been named the best for families in Australia.

The much-loved Surfers Paradise holiday spot was again given the honour in the Out and About with Kids Readers’ Choice awards on October 1.

The annual awards, which have been running for over 7 years, aim to uncover the best family holiday experiences in Australia across several categories including best destination, best resort and best adventure.


Resort General Manager David Brook says he is thrilled that the Resort has taken out the award.

“Being voted the winner of ‘Best Family Resort in Australia’ is an extraordinary honour and I am grateful that our guests have voted for us,” Mr Brook said.

“Winning this award only reaffirms exactly what is at the heart of what we do at Paradise Resort, and that’s providing memorable experiences for families.”

Featuring its own water park, ice rink, kids club, rock climbing, laser tag and adventure park, Pardise Resort has been dubbed as “Heaven for Kids and Paradise for Parents”.

“I believe these facilities combined with our dedication to providing great family experiences, is what sets us apart from other holiday resorts,” Mr Brook says.

“There’s a lot to be proud about this year and myself and my team are excited for another busy summer season here at Paradise Resort.”

Paradise Resort was up against some tough competition, with the Gold Coast’s SeaWorld Resort and the Surfers Paradise Marriot Resort also nominated.
