I am a single mum, studying midwifery fulltime and working part time, both involve shifts! My daughter has been so patient and understanding of what I'm doing. We also live with my parents , so having time for just the two of us together is really important. I'd love to have a holiday with her so we could have a much needed break together!!!!!!!

We are self-employed so short holidays are the only ones we can take, but they can be expensive for trip to far away places, like Queensland.

Because having two kids with dypsraxia takes over your lives, everything revolves around it. A family holiday without therapies and just having fun? Heaven!.

Family "holiday" ( DS2's 1st holiday) flopped.

We are Queenslanders but rarely get the chance to get away. DS has wanted to go and stay at Paradise for ages now from looking at pictures of the Waterpark area and has promised to be especially good if we can go! biggrin.gif

With a new baby on his way in a few weeks time, we are hanging out for a break after a high risk and scary pregnancy and this looks like the one for us!

We live in the dry, remote northwest of WA. Never been to the GoldCoast, the kids would love the new Waterpark at Paradise Resort!

Because DD1 still remembers her holiday to "Cleensland" as she called it when she was 2 yrs 10 mths old, we'd love to go again.

With my Dh doing crazy work hours, leaving me to run around after 5 kids aged 18 down to 3, we need a break to get our groove back and play like kids again.

We're expecting twins and it would be our last holiday together as a family of 3 before soon becoming a family of 5. What better place to spend it at than the Paradise Resort Queensland.

How relaxing to stop and just spend time with our kids doing activities with them that they would love and cherish at Paradise Resort!
