Movie World for the under-10yos – our Aussie family review!

Warner Bros. Movie World is indeed Hollywood on the Gold Coast! Here’s how we did Movie World with 2 under-10yos….  We had a great fun time at Warner Bros. Movie World – this is the essential theme park visit for every Gold Coast holiday… Twenty minutes drive from Surfers Paradise, Movie World is easy to find – just follow the […]

Dreamworld for young children – our Australian family review!

Dreamworld proves time and again of its ability to entertain all ages really well. There’s a new World especially for young children, as well as some great options for older children. Here’s how our family ‘did’ the Dreamworld rides with two under-ten-year-olds… Of the big three Gold Coast major theme parks, Dreamworld is the theme park of choice for most hard-core ride thrill-seekers – but […]

Sea World’s NEW Creatures of the Deep – a family review

We just visited Sea World’s Creatures of the Deep – a fantastic new attraction for families… Our family had a fabulous day at Sea World exploring the brand-new interactive attraction – Creatures of the Deep! Creatures of the Deep is a fun, educational (but don’t tell the kids that!) adventure-filled discovery trail of present, prehistoric and mythical sea creatures. We […]

Mantra Crown Towers Surfers Paradise – an Aussie family review

With so many family resort options to choose from on the Gold Coast, it’s hard to know which are the best…but we’ve found a great one – Mantra Crown Towers! This amazing resort certainly has one of the best hotel pool areas in Surfers Paradise, but it has so much more to offer holidaying families! Here’s why we think […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Sea World!

We all had such a great time on our recent visit to Sea World – I’d have to say that it is an absolute MUST for families visiting the Gold Coast, Queensland! I had already planned a trip to Sea World before they very kindly invited us to review it – and I already had one must-do in mind that Sea World is […]

Sea World, Movie World & Dreamworld in just 1.5 days!

We were very lucky to be invited to review all three of the big theme parks on our recent Gold Coast holiday – Sea World, Dreamworld and Movie World. The only problem was, we didn’t have all that much free time. So which theme park should we pick? The kids and I discussed it, and we all agreed – we should somehow squeeze in all […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Movie World!

We had such fun at Warner Bros. Movie World on our recent Gold Coast theme park trip! Only a twenty minute drive from our Gold Coast hotel (you can read our Jupiters Hotel review here), Movie World is clearly sign-posted from the Pacific Motorway, and it’s a breeze to park. Although we strategically (ha ha) went […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Dreamworld in half a day

Dreamworld’s motto is simple – “Happiness” They certainly got that right! We were very excited to be invited to review Dreamworld on our recent trip to the Gold Coast. We’d already heard that Dreamworld was Australia’s most popular theme park, and so were expecting big things – we weren’t to be disappointed! The drive to Dreamworld from our Broadbeach […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Jupiters Hotel, Gold Coast!

I always choose the hotels we stay in very carefully, and our latest trip to the Gold Coast was no exception. Over the years I’ve stayed in some really great hotels – and the odd awful one – but Jupiters Hotel & Casino has become our brand-new favourite! It’s a great place to stay, especially if you have kids! […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Coolangatta discount car hire!

On our recent fun park trip to the Gold Coast I decided that a hire car would be the best choice for our holiday transport needs. Unfortunately, I also fell for the oldest “cheap rent a car” con in the book… A hire car is great to pick up and go wherever – airport transfers, theme […]
