Summer is approaching fast here in the Southern Hemisphere and it’s already getting hot in Queensland, Australia.
This is the perfect time to start planning some beach trips and why not read about some of Sweet Pea’s favourite summer holidays.
We hope this will inspire you to take your own relaxing holiday vacation soon!
Sunshine Coast – Mooloolaba
Mooloolaba is just over an hours drive from Brisbane and is the perfect place for a day trip in summer. Along the beach there are delightful little restaurants and cafes. We love to grab a spot in the park and have a picnic at sunset after a long day spent at the beach in the waves.
Stradbroke is an island about an hour’s boat ride from Brisbane and is the perfect family getaway destination. You can either rent out a house or stay in a hotel. Even better grab your caravan or tent and stay right on the beach. Stradbroke is the perfect place for people who are more adventurous and love to get away from the city. The Sweet Pea family love to camp right on the beach far away from the city lights. There are so many stars in the sky and it’s a great time to spend the day and night right on the picturesque beach. But watch out in the water because there are SHARKS! Typical Australia.
Gold Coast – Coolangatta
Many people have heard about the Gold Coast when they think of Australian beach destinations. However all the Sweet Pea family love to escape the crowds at Surfers Paradise and enjoy a relaxing weekend at Coolangatta instead. The beach at Coolangatta has soft white sand and beautiful blue waves that the kids and even adults can enjoy spending the day in.
Moreton Island – Tangalooma Dolphin Resort
Lastly our family favourite beach destination in summer is Tangalooma Resort which is located on Moreton Island just a 75-minute boat ride from Brisbane and is the perfect place to spend the day but we stay for a whole week instead. One day is just never enough for us as there are so many activities for the grandchildren, children, adults and grandparents. Our whole family stays there together and we love seeking adventure, relaxation and nature. But the must see attraction is the dolphin feeding every night where you will never miss a sighting of the dolphins.
