DH works from home, 7 days a week. He's a wonderful husband and father. He works too hard and needs time to be a dad.

Because we were supposed to holiday in Sydney but can't afford it now. It would be a much loved replacement for our cancelled holiday.

We have never been on a family holiday since our two kids (DS1 almost five and DS2 eight months old) were born and it would wonderful to get away and spend some great family time together.

It's been a stressful year; need to get away from the rat race…
For some quality family time, Paradise Resort sounds like the perfect place!

We don't deserve this holiday any more then anyone else, but we haven't stayed anywhere as a family for over 5 years. What a great way to start the family holiday tradition for my  6,4 and 2 year olds!!!!
Good luck everyone!!

Fun,laughter,sunshine,recovery,family time.
There are 101 reasons why we need a holiday but only one reason we deserve a holiday and that is.

We couldnt afford a nice one on our own.

For the same reason every other family does ... to spend some quality time together, creating lasting memories involving lots of love, fun and laughter.

Break from flat-out UNI/work/house/school... We'd drive across, life/learning/camping family few months, topped by staying here - somewhere otherwise beyond reach.

A holiday would be unbelievably special, all our money goes to therapy for my autistic son and my 3 y.o. daughter deserves a treat. original.gif

With DH who's had a heart attack @ 33 yrs old & a daughter that suffers from febrile convulsions, holidays are hard to come by...

because DS2 and DD have never been on a holiday (been a long time since we have been anywhere) and DS1 asked me the other day while watching a movie set on a beach "Is that a big sandpit?" LOL.

“Why does your family deserve a holiday in Queensland?”
Grandma, her Gold Coast honeymoon washed out in '68,
Mummy, relocated overseas, parenting two beautiful girls alone,
Three generations of girls deserving the fun!!

A great holiday for us to spend quality and fun times as a family before my DH starts his offshore work next year

We have never had a holiday as a family yet and Paradise Resort looks like the perfect place to introduce our kids to what a holiday is. We have been planning to stay here regardless so winning would be an awesome bonus!

To bring two sets of cousins together for the first time - four living on the Gold Coast, two in New Zealand.
Family is so precious.

Just looking at all the kids activities available has me jumping for joy.  We might actually get some time to ourselves for the first time in 4 years.....

My family have not been to queensland, everytime we have holiday is to go overseas visiting family and thus no more saving for another holiday. It will be great if we actually have a holiday that our family will love and enjoy.

My middle child was born on the Gold Coast and has never been back! She'd love to play where she was born... Such fun...

We would love to discover Queensland as we've never been and since my third daughter was born we haven't had a break.  I'd love to take my hubbie who works really hard and my three girls away as we all need to relax and have some fun together!

My son needs a break from the bullying he is experiencing at school and we can't afford it right now due to recent unemployment.
