What’s new at Paradise Resort (and hidden Gold Coast gems)

What’s new at Paradise Resort

Miniature train ride

All aboard for Dusty’s Safari Train Ride! This new addition to Paradise Resort lets guests take a slow and enjoyable ride through our Safari Park, spotting many different species of wild animals on the way. You’ll also learn information about the wildlife you spot thanks to our specialist train guide, Dusty, and even win prizes if you answer the trivia questions correctly! Come and join us for this escape through the Paradise Resort Safari Park, perfect for kids aged two and up (children aged two to three require an adult to ride, and tickets will be needed for both riders). Meet at the Train Station five minutes prior to departure as the train must keep schedule.

Laser tag

Challenge your friends or family to a game of laser tag in an epic ‘Battle for Underwater World,’ the latest addition to our Zone 4 Kids Club. Head to our new Battle Briefing Room to be instructed on your latest mission, then get ready to battle it out with friends or family. During your adventure, you’ll conquer the infamous box jellyfish which has invaded and taken control of Underwater World in the Zone 4 Kids Club. There may be plenty of places to hide but keep an eye out for your opposition – no one is safe in this friendly game of modern warfare.

Dusty’s Digs

Even our family rooms have scored an upgrade! One of our most popular wings, Dusty’s Digs, has 66 brand-new deluxe rooms which are perfect for families of up to six (seven including a baby). These newly-renovated suites are beloved by both kids and adults – they feature a super comfy queen size bed in the main room, plus two sets of stylish single bunks in the second bedroom. Yep, the whole family is sure to get a good night’s sleep! In 2022 you’ll even have the choice to upgrade and overlook our Adults Only Pool Deck. These rooms also feature a 55-inch Smart TV, complimentary high speed Wi-Fi, complimentary local and national calls, an iron and board, a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, sink, microwave, toaster, crockery and cutlery, complimentary tea and coffee, a private balcony with table and chairs, air-conditioning/heating and daily housekeeping service which includes removal of rubbish, fresh towels and your bed freshly made.

Order Up

As if our on-site dining options could get any more exciting (or convenient) we’ve recently partnered with the mobile app Order Up to help guests order food at the touch of a button. Whether it’s a delicious feast from Penguins Restaurant, an indulgent meal from Deb’s Pizza Shack and Jerry’s Burger Bar a poolside snack courtesy of our Poolside Café, you can place a takeaway order to be picked up when its ready – meaning no more waiting in line, and more time spent enjoying the amazing facilities and luxe rooms at Paradise Resort.

Cocktail trivia for mum and dad

What makes trivia even more fun? Cocktails! You don’t even need to be a cocktail connoisseur to enjoy this game – part of our exciting Parents Only program of activities. So how does it work? It’s easy. Players will be put into teams, competing to take out the title of “Cocktail Champions”.  This one is strictly for the adults with some risqué games and trivia questions thrown in to the mix that will have you in stitches and making sure you choose your game show partners carefully.

Hidden Gold Coast gems

Looking for fun to be had outside the resort? Positioned in the heart of Surfers Paradise, we’re conveniently located within walking distance of some unmissable attractions and beautiful beaches. Don’t miss…

  • Echo Beach, Tallebudgera: Hidden on the Burleigh side of the Tallebudgera Creek, under the Gold Coast Highway overpass, Echo Beach is the ultimate slice of paradise. The still waters are perfect for families, so post up beneath a shady tree and enjoy a day spent in the sun, salt and sand.
  • Tamborine Mountain: There is so much fun to be had at Tamborine Mountain, from the dizzying Rainforest Skywalk to the Treetop Challenge zipline attraction. Not to mention Thunderbird Park, which offers kid-friendly activities like thunder-egg fossicking, hinterland horse riding, laser skirmish and more.
  • Broadwater Parklands: These world class parklands were designed for everything from large scale events to small family gatherings. There are plenty of shady spots for a picnic and you can also make use of the free barbecue facilities. It’s family fun at its finest!

THE PACKAGES…

 We’re so excited to have launched not one, but two new packages – designed to help both Queenslanders and interstate visitors explore our special corner of the world.

What’s the difference between the two packages, we hear you ask? Good question!

The ‘Great QLD Getaway’ is designed to help Queenslanders explore their home state and offers the same inclusions as the ‘Stay and Play’ package.

The only difference is that the ‘Stay and Play’ package, which is designed for our interstate friends, includes a bonus $200 (for the three-night package) or $400 (for the six-night package) Experience Oz credit to spend on local tours and attractions here on the Gold Coast.
