Living up to its ethos of heaven for kids...paradise for parents', Australia's premier family resort has opened a brand new attraction, set to spellbind the whole tribe in 2014.
The introduction of Dusty's Adventureland caps off what is already a superb family holiday offering with yet another opportunity for family fun and memories in a host of thrilling themed zones and play areas.
Inspired by the Resort's popular mascot, Dusty Adventureland incorporates a 9 metre rock climbing wall, Dusty's Adventure Playground, a new BBQ area and an indoor Jungle Gym.
"We've based the new attraction around our beloved Dusty, who hails from the Outback and loves outdoor fun," explains Resort General Manager David Brook.
Guests will be charmed from the very moment they step foot on the Resort grounds, starting at the front entrance where a permanent Rhino and baby Lion cub fixture will greet holidaymakers.
Once through the front doors, Dusty's Jungle Gym will leave kids wide-eyed and with the feeling of having been transported magically to the land of Madagascar.
"Guests first come face-to-face with a giraffe and are then greeted with the awesome sight of the Resort's impressive new multi-level climbing frame, complete with slides and mazes," said Mr Brook. "It has that jaw-dropping effect; something we are sure will induce smiles."
Mr Brook said he and his team are constantly looking to improve the experience for families at the Resort and, in this instance, it meant re-inventing the entrance lobby and other areas in favour of more opportunities for fun.
"We really want to encourage that sense of holiday wonder and adventure as soon as families pull up to the Resort and Dusty's indoor Jungle Gym is the perfect addition to enhance this atmosphere."
Once checked into the hotel, Dusty's Adventureland provides young explorers more chances for excitement during their stay.
"Dusty's Adventure Playground, includes activities such as a commando course, scavenger hunts and a new self-catering BBQ area."
"When our families and kids first see the attractions, we want to create that, pinch yourself' moment, something that is special, thrilling and able to help create the best possible holiday memories."
The relaxing BBQ area takes full advantage of family time and the balmy Queensland climate, with a spacious grassed area, complimentary electronic BBQ's and a large timber deck that will play host to live music and entertainment throughout the year.
Mr Brook said that the expansion of the Resort's offering over the past year was by design to achieve some very clear objectives.
"Everything we do is aimed at building the fun-factor at the Resort, providing our kids with the best holiday experiences, all in the convenience of the Resort's grounds, while delivering exceptional value for money."
In the past 24 months the Resort has upgraded its Zone for Kids Club, established the only Resort-based ice skating rink - Planet Chill - commenced upgrading of rooms that will continue into 2014, improved the entertainment offering at the Resort, as well as housing one of the biggest Resort aqua play waterparks in the Southern Hemisphere, the Zone for Kids (Z4K) waterpark, and much more.
"We are based in the middle of Australia's playground' here on the Gold Coast so we take our role in the creation of fun, relaxation and enjoyment, all at an affordable price, very seriously."
"We're proud of what's been achieved in such a short time and recent award wins will attest to us going about this in the right way but what can't be measured is the amount of joy the Resort creates...that factor, seen in the smiles of all our guests, is absolutely priceless."
