Cruise with Carnival Australia

 

 

 

 

DAY ONE – DREAMWORLD :

 

 

Ancient Aborigines used to call this Gold Coast suburb “good fish” and you’ll hear no argument from anyone on this apt name. For Tallebudgera is best known for its sparkling creek which is framed by the Burleigh Heads National Park on one side and Palm Beach on the other. This is the focal point for any visit to Tallebudgera where the lifestyle is all about camping, swimming, picnicking, kayaking and a spot of fishing or two.

So popular is the campground here, that generations of families return each summer to claim their favourite spot at the Tallebudgera Creek Tourist Park which is perched on the edge of this estuary. For those looking for a little luxury there’s also two and three bedroom waterfront villas, or basic lodgings for those on a budget.

While the waters in the creek are renowned for their relative calm, those seeking surf need only walk to nearby Tallebudgera Beach for a few waves. For a true taste of this part of the coast, head to the Tallebudgera Surf Lifesaving Club for a meal at Club Talle. Tally-ho and all that.

or dad can take you for a spin round the track. Our daughter’s favourite ride turns out to be the vintage cars and she can’t drive round that track often enough.

Then I was coerced into the “extreme excitement” of the Wipeout which made me squeal… lots.

There are lots of silly things to do at Dreamworld too, like go in a giant cage and shoot spongy balls at your family or even at complete strangers. I ended up staying in there far longer than planned.

Then I got tired just watching the energetic Shrek show. Both my children wanted a photo with Puss in Boots afterwards and Fiona got in on the action too. Shrek had vanished after getting mobbed by his many pint-sized fans.
