THE dinosaurs are coming to Surfers Paradise, as the precinct gets set to transform into a fun-filled playground for big and little kids these school holidays with the return of Surfers Paradise Kids Week from September 29 to October 5.

An initiative of Surfers Paradise Alliance and presented by Paradise Resort Gold Coast, Surfers Paradise Kids Week is a must-do event for families and celebrates all things kids, with a jam-packed program full of free family-friendly fun and entertainment held within the Surfers Paradise precinct.

Kids will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with prehistoric beasts, as huge dinosaurs and their ‘rangers’ perform in an Australian first, with two daily Jurassic Creatures in Paradise shows not to be missed.

Children can also enjoy educational Seal Guardians Shows daily and other live performances on the main stage, located beachside opposite the Soul Boardwalk, while the streets of Surfers Paradise come alive with colour and fanfare, offering a bounty of age-appropriate activities including beach sports, Virtual Reality experience, cooking workshops, face painting and even dino-painting.

Taking a time-out from the range of activities on offer, children and their parents can browse the many stalls lining the beachfront and shake off any excess energy by having a boogie at the daily kid’s Mascot dance party.

The Surfers Paradise businesses are coming to the party for Kids Week too, offering discounts, deals and giveaways as added incentives for families to come into the precinct for a day of fun or even a weekend of pure entertainment.

Families are invited to join in the fun and make the most of the free entertainment and kid-focused activities while enjoying the precinct’s retail offerings, restaurants, cafes and family-friendly attractions that form the Gold Coast’s playground.

With so much on offer, families are encouraged to stay at one of the precinct’s many quality and child-friendly accommodation options taking advantage of convenient public transport or parking available at Bruce Bishop carpark.
