Surfers Paradise becomes Kids Paradise this month, with Kids Week presented by Surfers Paradise Marriott Resort & Spa.


Think Minions, Bananas in Pyjamas, Barbie, Bugs Bunny, Ronald McDonald and heaps more – there’s something for all ages with shows, appearances, activities and meet-and-greets to entertain the whole family.


Kids Week - MinionThe mischievous Minions take to the stage with shows at 11am and 1pm, and meet and greets at 12pm daily throughout the week-long event. The perfect tie-in with the big screen release of Blinky Bill¸ Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary brings the tale to life with the Blinky Bill Show. And Drax Haunted House hosts a Drax 4 Kids Disco.


“Surfers Paradise is a destination of fun for all ages year-round and these September school holidays are no exception,” says Surfers Paradise Alliance CEO, Mike Winlaw.


“We will be hosting a bumper week of child-focused free fun, activities and celebration for Kids Week 2015 all within our world renowned entertainment precinct.”


“We have activities that are bound to excite the kids such as kids’ fitness, sushi making and a fireworks finale, as well as free daily performances by everyone’s favourite Minions, and even special appearances from Barbie, Bananas in Pyjamas, Bugs Bunny and more.


“This is all on top of our many family-friendly attractions which operate year round and have given Surfers Paradise the title of the Gold Coast’s Sixth Theme Park.”
