Winter Holiday Survival Hacks

We all know the feeling - The school holiday's are here, the kids have seen every new movie imaginable and we're pulling our hair out trying to think of new ways to entertain them without plonking them in front of the TV all day. The school holiday stress is real - So we'll save you the pain. From magic shows to free boat rides, we know the perfect place to spend your Winter school holidays.

Just ten minutes from the M1 in the Northern Gold Coast, the Marine Village is one of the Gold Coast's hidden gems, packed full of retailers, food outlets and pamper places perfect for the ultimate day out. Featuring a stunning open-plan space surrounded by crystal blue waters, you'll easily forget that you're on the Gold Coast as soon as you drive down that red-brick road - And with plenty of kids activities going on over the Winter Holidays, you can forget about school holiday stress too!

Kicking off the festivities on June 29th, the Marine Village will turn from a shopping and dining paradise into the ultimate kids playground, pulling out all the stops to create three weeks of incredible kid-friendly fun perfect for filling up your holiday schedule.

Starting at 10am, grab your morning coffee and begin your morning in style with a free, kid-friendly yoga class on the Dock over-looking the Marina, then switch your Yoga mats for golf clubs at 11am and learn all of the tricks to becoming a professional golfer with PGA Professional Tom Major!

Also offering a range of ticketed activities including Movie Nights and Magic classes, grab your nearest child and come along for a morning of magic with the one and only Matt Hollywood, then spend the afternoon in the Village Theatre catching up on all of the latest kid-friendly flicks! Showing Aladdin and Pokemon Detective Pikachu at 11am, 2pm and 5pm, it's the perfect way to finish off a day down at the Marine Village!

I'm a creative at heart - I love reading, I love writing and I love my social media! I spend the majority of my time sipping coffee and finding the next best cafe, but when I get a second off chances are I'll be brunching at my local or running off to whatever event is on that night! During Summer you can find me sipping coffee and tanning down by Burleigh Beach, and in Winter I'll be skiing the slopes of Perisher or buried under a mountain of blankets with chocolate and a good book.
