How to Spend Five Nights at Paradise Resort


Posted in: Resort



Welcome to Paradise Resort Gold Coast, Australia! 

The Gold Coast has been deemed one of Australia’s most popular holiday destinations and what better way to explore the region but by staying at Australia's Favourite Family Resort! 

We've put together the ultimate 7 day, 5 night Gold Coast itinerary for all families visiting the Gold Coast.

So, hold onto your hats as we take you on a 7 day adventure! 



Welcome to Paradise Resort


See the friendly team at reception to initiate your family holiday adventure! You can be forgiven for thinking you have arrived in the land of Madagascar when you come face to face with our multi-level climbing frame complete with slides and mazes that make up Dusty’s Jungle Gym. Perfect for young explorers to enjoy whilst you check in. 

Take a stroll around the resort to discover your new home for the next 5 nights. We estimate you’ll be in your room less than 5 minutes before for your little ones will be jumping up and down with excitement wanting to check out our giant water park!

All that water park fun is sure to make you and your family hungry! Why not check out our Poolside café or Bistro restaurant for some delicious freshly made pizzas? Catering to even the fussiest of eaters there’s enough to please everyone from vegemite sandwiches to gourmet salads and everything in between.





MORNING: 'All aboard' we're off to Australia's biggest theme park

EVENING: Family time together


Start your day right at our fun 50’s style diner with a delicious continental breakfast menu including a variety of breakfast choices the whole family will enjoy.

Make a quick stop at Splashes Mini Mart to pick up your favourite snacks and get ready to take on the day.

Dreamworld is Australia's biggest theme park, offering visitors the highest number of rides in the country along with a host of other entertainment options such as animal/wildlife viewing, great areas for kids and younger children, and plenty of excellent non-ride entertainment as well. 

After a fun-filled day at the theme park, we can bet you’re probably ravished! Whether you are looking to sit down and enjoy a meal with the family or grab a light take away meal to enjoy a relaxing evening in your room, the Poolside Café & Bar has it all.





MORNING: Take a 'guilt free' break

EVENING: Discover the coolest place in paradise!


Book the Kids into Kids Club and take a 'guilt free' break in our Zone 4 Adults spa area equipped with an outdoor heated spa. Or join us for some laughs in our 'adults only' trivia, cooking demonstrations and wine tasting. For those with fitness in mind our 24hour Cardio Gym is free of charge for use and is equipped with a treadmill, bike, rowing machine, fit balls and yoga mats. Perhaps shopping is more your thing? Why not take the complimentary shuttle to the newly renovated Pacific Fair Shopping Centre.

You don't often think about going ice-skating while on the Gold Coast but you can add it to the itinerary with a REAL ice-skating rink located right here, at Paradise Resort! Planet Chill is suitable for big kids and small (3yrs+) and to make it a little easier for beginners to stay on their feet we have our penguin stabilisers ready to assist. 





MORNING: Explore Surfers Paradise

EVENING: Eye spy with my little eye..


Like most mornings casually make your way to The Bistro for another delicious buffet continental style breakfast. Feel like a little something extra? Browse The Bistro menu for the la carte options available too.

Surfers Paradise didn't earn its name without reason! Just a short stroll away from Paradise Resort is the beautiful Surfers Paradise beach; The perfect place to take a dip in the Gold Coast’s most iconic beach. Continue to walk along the foreshore until you reach the heart of the Surfers Paradise; easily recognisable by its large “Surfers Paradise” sign that is always a popular feature in photos for visitors looking to strike a pose or snap a selfie. Beyond the sign you'll discover restaurants, Time Zone, Ripley’s Believe it or Not and more to keep you and your family busy for best part of the day.

Take some time in the afternoon to also visit SkyPoint at the Q1, taking you to the highest point above the Gold Coast and offers spectacular 360 degree views from the surf to the hinterland and beyond. Try and spot Paradise Resort whilst you're there too! 





MORNING: Activities and entertainment galore

EVENING: Dracula’s cabaret 


Yep, you guessed it; mornings are made for fresh fruit, cereal, pastries and juice at The Bistro restaurant. There is no need to leave the resort with our Resort Entertainment Crew on board to ensure your holiday is jam packed full of fun for the whole family. Each day offers something different including cupcake decorating with Cleo and plaster art for the creative kids, rock-climbing, ice-skating in Planet Chill to pool noodle races and aqua hunt for those a little more active. Check your weekly What’s On Program for the daily activities and times.

As the evening approaches, it’s time to visit the Zone 4 Kids Club.  The team provide an unrivalled activity program to entertain and engage kids of every age (0-12yrs), allowing them the opportunity to meet new friends and experience a host of fun activities designed just for kids. There are pyjama parties, disco nights, arts & crafts, carnival activities plus loads more fun to be had. So whilst the kids are looked after parents can truly relax and enjoy a night 'kid free' whilst being entertained by the devilishly talented cast of Dracula’s Cabaret. Kids Club pffers sessions until 11pm Tues-Sat.






MORNING: WhiteWater World 

EVENING: It's movie time


If you thought our waterpark was awesome you’re in for a treat, WhiteWater World has loads of rides and attractions suitable for all ages, test out the Super Tube Hydro Coaster or take the little ones to visit Wiggle Bay!

Enjoy our casual poolside dining experience with a different theme every night! Enjoy a little piece of Mexico with a taco or burrito on Mexican night or join us poolside for our popular bbq buffet.  Once you're stuffed full of yummy goodness, sit back and enjoy the featured outdoor movie (Wed & Sat night only)! As the sun sets behind the hinterland, recline back in our outdoor loungers next to the Zone 4 Kids Waterpark area to watch the latest family-friendly feature movie. Offered seasonally and weather permitting. 





MORNING: All good things must come to an end


You won’t know what to do after this week when there's no continental breakfast already prepared for you and your family at home. 

Say goodbye to your temporary home, our friendly staff and all the new friends you've made whilst staying at Paradise Resort.  

Last but not least, don't forget to share all of your favourite family holiday snaps on social media using #paradiseresortgc and count down the days until you return to Australia's Favourite Family Resort!
