Why Holidaying Here is the Best Decision You’ll Make this Easter

Staycation these holidays

What a whirlwind start to the year we’ve had in Australia! From communities banding together to support each other as the country burned during the worst bushfire season, to appalling supermarket brawl scenes as people scramble to buy dwindling toilet paper supplies amid Coronavirus panic.

The World Health Organisation today declared a global pandemic with the disease spreading through every continent, and in Australia we are hearing hourly updates of how authorities are working to keep us safe.

Travel bans are in place and many industries have been hit hard by the dive in tourism and consumer confidence. In these uncertain times, we want to hold off making plans and keep our loved ones close.

On the flipside, party bookings have spiked at Pampered Princess, as we are one of the few venues offering private rooms for kids’ parties. Parents still want to celebrate those special milestones, but understandably want to avoid crowded play centres and inflatable rooms.

With the Easter break just weeks away, now is the best time to make the most of holidaying at home.

For those of us lucky enough to live here on the Gold Coast, we already have the world’s best natural attractions and plenty of amazing family-friendly entertainment options, right here on our doorstep.

Beaches, rainforests, parks and more are all easily accessible and not overly crowded. Check off some of the places on your Gold Coast bucket list, or take the opportunity to rediscover some of the favourite local sights and the more low-key attractions you loved visiting as a family when the kids were little.

Keep supporting local businesses wherever you can … we are all in this together.

For guaranteed fun for little ones during your staycation — and also a great option if you are working over the break — why not book the kids in for some events with Pampered Princess Easter Holiday Club? 

We have planned a full schedule of events at both Burleigh and Coomera. Each session will be capped to keep group sizes small (average 6-10 participants per event). Parents can drop and go, or stay and relax in our parents’ lounge if they prefer.

Check off some of the places on your Gold Coast bucket list, or take the opportunity to rediscover some of your old favourite local haunts.
