Holiday in Surfers Paradise

We recently had a family holiday in Surfers Paradise in Queensland which was a welcome getaway. DS #2 and I drove back down from Caloundra where we attended the National Karate Championships and met DS #1 and DH there. Our hotel was wonderful, and we'd definitely recommend it. It was a massive 2 bedroom apartment with ocean & river views, and a bigger walk in wardrobe than our bathroom at home! Here it is, including the view from our 19th floor balcony:
Here's some pics of the resort facilites, including a lizard who roamed around the heated outdoor pool/spa area:
Monday was spent at the Movie World theme park, where we hit some rides and met the TV presenter Shelley Craft, who posed for a pic with the kids:
Tuesday was spent on the "Superduck" (a bus that drives into the water and becomes a boat), at Timezone and then dinner & a show at the Aussie Outback Spectacular:
Wednesday was another theme park, Dream World this time:
Thursday we had a buffet breakfast in the restaurant on site, followed by one last swim and spa and a wander through town ending with ice cream before heading back to the airport and home.
