Aqua Park

A few weeks ago on the school holidays, my sister and her husband treated their niece and nephews for a morning out.  It was a birthday present for 3 of them as their birthdays all fall within about 3 weeks (Master M is the odd one out as he was born in January).
 
 


The plan was to head to one of the Aqua Parks on the Sunshine Coast.  We were originally going to the one in Coolum but a freak storm a couple of nights before had caused some damage which they were still repairing.


 
 
 We went to the one at Bli Bli instead which is a little smaller than the one at Coolum but there are other activities at the facility as well.
 
Each session goes for 50 minutes and everyone that uses the park (children as well as adults) are given a life jacket to wear.
 

 
 
 Once the horn goes they swarm off the beach and onto all the fun things out on the water.  There are trampolines and walkways, slides and other odd things I don't know the name of.
 

 
 
 Thanks so much to Uncle J who went out there with the kids.  They really, really, really LOVED it and I have a feeling Uncle J did too. 
 
They were all pretty knackered afterward because it's a full on 50 minutes of swimming, running, jumping, climbing, sliding, bouncing and more swimming.
 

 
 
 I haven't cropped the above and below photos (still working out how to do that on this computer), but Uncle J is jumping onto a big blow up pillow thing and Nephew R is sitting on the edge of it. 
 
The bottom photo has Nephew R flying through the air before he landed with a big splash!
 

 
 
 The Bli Bli Aqua Park is part of the cable skiing facility too so it was a pretty busy place the morning we were there. 
 

 
 
 We had a fantastic morning and Master M has already requested that we go there for his birthday.  I may have to buy a pair of togs (swimmers) and think about joining in the fun.
 
Thank you so much to Aunty S and Uncle J for a wonderful present for the kids and what was a really fun and lovely morning.
