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… 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 […]

Let’s Go Mum reviews… Disney On Ice!

Disney on Ice is fast-becoming a family tradition for us – our first show was last year, and everyone had such fun, not going again this year was quite out of the question! Lucky for us we had been invited to the show and after-party, however we certainly would have gone to see the show […]
