Sun, surf and koalas at Caloundra

ERIC SCOTT January 31, 2015

PICTURE:Oaks Oasis - Reflections Restaurant

Where in the world can you cuddle a koala, visit the world’s busiest wildlife hospital, play in a water park and stay within a coastal oasis all in the same day? Australia’s resort Oaks Oasis on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is where.

Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ seaside resort in Queensland’s Caloundra, Oaks Oasis has partnered with Australia Zoo to offer a holiday like no other, inviting families to “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”.

From $189 AUD per night, two adults and two children stay in a newly refurbished Executive Family Room, with free WiFi, a late checkout and a complimentary bottle of sparkling wine.

In addition, guests will also receive exclusive access to specially discounted Australia Zoo tickets and of lush, landscaped gardens and a short stroll to Golden Beach. The multi-level, on-site water park, complete with water slides, fountains, a giant tipping bucket and interactive activities, will keep the youngsters entertained from dawn to dusk while parents can relax poolside on sun lounges positioned within safe and easy reach of the water park’s play zones and enjoy the added convenience of grassy picnic areas and shady party tents nearby.

There’s no shortage of family-fun activities, including a tropical lagoon pool and spa, children’s playground, floodlit tennis court, miniature putting green and beach volleyball court on offer. And feeding the family is easy too with Oaks Oasis offering onsite dining options at Reflections Restaurant & Bar, serving up a delicious selection of breakfast and dinner delights daily, plus there are a host of local eateries, supermarkets and cafes just a short stroll away.

The resort is also a stone’s throw from local swimming, sunning and surfing hot spots like Golden Beach and Kings Beach, while other popular local attractions including Underwater World – Sea Life, Big Kart Track, Underwater World, Aussie World and Eumundi Markets are within easy driving distance too.
