It’s school holiday time once again…

You either love it or you hate it.

The kids are whining and the dreaded “I’m bored!” is starting to raise its ugly head…

We thought we’d put a list together of the 5 best activities you can do with your kids that won’t cost an arm and a leg…

Number #1 The Aquaduck


The Aqua Duck is a great day out for kids!

The Aquaduck is great for younger kids although teens secretly love it as well.

Leaving from Surfers Paradise the Aquaduck rolls through the streets before making a big splash into the canal.

If your kids behave themselves the captain might even let them get behind the steering wheel to navigate through the waters…

The Aquaduck is a great experience for all ages and tickets don’t break the bank.


Number #2 Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary
