Take a Walk on the Wild Side with Oaks Oasis and Australia Zoo

26 Jan 2015

Where in the world can you cuddle a koala, visit the world’s busiest wildlife hospital, play on a ‘splashtacular’ water play park and stay within a tranquil, coastal oasis all in the same day? Family friendly resort Oaks Oasis on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is where.

With active, adventurous and fun loving families in mind, Oaks Hotels & Resorts’ impressive seaside resort in Caloundra, Oaks Oasis has partnered with Australia Zoo to offer a holiday like no other, inviting families to “Take a Walk on the Wild Side”.

From just $189 per night, two adults and two children can enjoy the supreme surrounds of Oaks Oasis, staying in a newly refurbished Executive Family Room, plus FREE WiFi, a bonus midday late checkout and bottle of sparkling wine. In addition, guests will also receive exclusive access to specially discounted Australia Zoo tickets at Oaks Oasis’ reception and a FREE ‘Sneak Peek’ pass into the Australia Zoo Wildlife Hospital, where even the smallest of wildlife warriors can see the behind-the-scenes work of Australia's largest wildlife hospital, ensuring Oaks Oasis is the Sunshine Coast’s most affordable family holiday destination.

Renowned for its laidback, family-friendly and fun atmosphere, Oaks Oasis is a do-all holiday destination that parents will enjoy just as much as the kids, idyllically positioned amongst 10 acres of lush, landscaped gardens and just a short stroll to Golden Beach. The multi-level, on-site water play park, complete with water slides, fountains, a giant tipping bucket and interactive activities, will keep the youngsters entertained from dawn to dusk while parents can relax poolside on sun lounges positioned within safe and easy reach of the water park’s cool play zones and enjoy the added convenience of grassy picnic areas and shady party tents nearby.

There’s no shortage of family-fun activities either, with onsite leisure facilities including a tropical lagoon pool and spa, children’s playground, floodlit tennis court, miniature putting green and beach volleyball court on offer. And feeding the family is easy too with Oaks Oasis offering onsite dining options at Reflections Restaurant & Bar, serving up a delicious selection of breakfast and dinner delights daily, plus there are a host of local eateries, supermarkets and cafes just a short stroll away.

Kids will also love the chance to visit Australia’s premier wildlife attraction Australia Zoo and perhaps even pay a visit to koala joey Oasis, who Oaks Hotels & Resorts has named and supports through a recent partnership forged with Australia Zoo and its renowned Wildlife Warriors Program.

In addition, there are a host of amazing, exotic animals to discover, as well as the newly launched Bindi’s Island where youngsters can explore the impressive 10-metre high, three-storey tree house, plus enjoy daily wildlife shows such as the famous crocodile show at the Crocoseum.

For a change of pace, the resort is just a stone’s throw from local swimming, sunning and surfing hot spots like Golden Beach and Kings Beach, while other popular local attractions including Underwater World – Sea Life, Big Kart Track, Underwater World, Aussie World and Eumundi Markets are within easy driving distance too.

Renowned as one of Caloundra’s favourite family-friendly holiday destinations, the newly transformed Oaks Oasis promises a cool, coastal escape for families to enjoy, and with bonus FREE WiFi, FREE parking and FREE midday late checkout, Oaks Oasis’ ‘Take a Walk on the Wild Side’ deal is not only amazing value, but offers every family the chance to enjoy the very best on offer in accommodation and entertainment on Queensland’s glorious Sunshine Coast.
