My family deserves a Gold Coast holiday because my oldest just got a fantastic report card and i'm so proud of him.

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!!!!!!!

Our family would so love it. Our last holiday well, everyone was cranky and DH ended up working through it. Happy kids = happy parents!
Posted 16 July 2012 - 02:04 PM
I deserve and would love to win this as we haven't been able to have a holiday since we became a self employed family.

To enrich our childrens lives with a fun experience they will remember forever and to take some time out for ourselves too
Posted 16 July 2012 - 02:15 PM
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.

Poor kids missed out.
Magical Queensland!!!! WooooooooooooooooooooW !!!!!!

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!
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!
Posted 16 July 2012 - 02:27 PM
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.

DH's 40th birthday is in a few weeks and i cant think of a better surprise than a family holiday to Queensland. What a wonder memory that would make!

Sister in law's autistic son is very diffiult due to change on a holiday but was so happy at paradise resort. Would love them to go again

We are lucky enough to have healthy kids but sometimes we forget they grow to quick. It would be a trip of memories to cherish!

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.

My family deserves a holiday because my children haven't been on a holiday. Winning a holiday to Queensland would be an amazing experience for us.
Posted 16 July 2012 - 02:55 PM
Who doesn't. We may need to rename it according to my daughter it's to London where the Queen lives. Sorry darling that isn't quite Queensland
Posted 16 July 2012 - 03:18 PM
Because I'm freezing through my first real winter in Geelong (I'm a Darwin girl) bring on the sunshine.

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.
Posted 16 July 2012 - 03:53 PM
How relaxing to stop and just spend time with our kids doing activities with them that they would love and cherish at Paradise Resort!
