Whether you’re flying or driving deciding what to pack for your holiday can sometimes be stressful but you can leave the kitchen sink at home (and half of the kid’s toys) because we’ve got fairy godmothers (aka housekeepers who will take care of your room) and so many toys (aka Waterparks, jungle gyms, Kids Clubs, games room, ice-skating rink and so much more) that the kids won’t know what to play with first.

So to makes things a bit easier here’s a list of the top 10 things to pack;

  1. Socks for Ice Skating at Planet Chill, Astro says these are essential!
  2. Closed in shoes for younger skaters at Planet Chill, the smallest size Astro has is a Junior 12, however, he has special skates for younger skaters.
  3. Beach Towels, if you are low on space, bring your sarong or you can find Dusty, Astro, Cleo or Captain towels for purchase in the resort shop.
  4. Smartphone and charger (or your camera) - Cleo says selfies are a must! And don't forget to tag #paradiseresortgc and check in on Facebook.
  5. Fancy dress costume for Fancy Dress Friday.
  6. Swimmers and sunscreen are a must to ensure you are ready to race on down our waterslides.
  7. Theme Park Tickets, you can book your here.
  8. Medications - asthma sprays, Epi-pens and any medical action plans for our Kids Club team.
  9. Favourite book to read in your quiet time whilst the kids are enjoying Zone 4 Kids.
  10. Your biggest smile because guess what, you are about to go on holidays!
    If you've forgotten anything you can visit our Mini-Mart which stocks a range of things you can buy or hire to make that load a little lighter.

During your stay...

In an effort to create a happier, healthier place for both our staff and guests, Paradise Resort is proudly 100% smoke-free.  

Smoking (including electronic cigarettes and shishas) are not permitted anywhere within the property and government regulations prevent smoking in all public areas or within 5 metres of a building entrance. Smoking in rooms will incur a $500 deodorising charge.

An undercover car-park is located at the resort and offered at a rate of $20 per space per day. 

With limited spaces we highly recommend pre-booking.  The height of the undercover car park is 2.0 metres. The majority of four-wheel drives are under this measurement, however, remember to take in to account your roof rack if you have got one fitted to your vehicle.

If the car-park is full the closest public car-park is approximately 600metres away on the corner of Cypress Avenue, charges are hourly. Click here to visit their website
