One of the Sunshine Coast’s favourite family-friendly resort destinations, Oaks Oasis, is tipped as the hottest place to stay this summer, unveiling its new-look water play park for guests and announcing plans to complete a brand new outdoor Adventure Zone in the coming months just in time for Christmas.

Set amongst the lush resort grounds, Oaks Oasis’ water play park has recently experienced upgrades and maintenance works, and is now open and ready to welcome guests during the popular spring/summer season. The vibrant, multi-level attraction is complete with water slides, fountains, splash zones and myriad interactive activities, suitable for youngsters aged 12 years and under, while the shaded picnic areas, party tents and contemporary sun loungers are the perfect option for parents wanting to relax in tropical surrounds.

The family fun is set to continue at Oaks Oasis, announcing plans to open a brand new Adventure Zone just for kids to accompany the resort’s impressive range of leisure facilities. The interactive, open-air zone – exclusive for guests of Oaks Oasis – will feature an 18-hole putt-putt golf course, sandpit, climbing frame and giant jumping pillow, adding to the resort’s family-friendly appeal. Works are expected to be completed by December 2015 in time for the wave of summer holidaymakers.

Oaks Oasis has also launched a healthy and family-friendly poolside menu, featuring a selection of delicious and wholesome meals and snacks that parents will love just as much as the kids, perfect for long summer days spent at the water play park.

To celebrate the reopening of its water play park, Oaks Oasis is inviting families to enjoy the very best family-friendly accommodation on the Sunshine Coast this summer, with rates starting from $131 per night (min. two night stay) for a modern and well-appointed executive family room, including a bonus midday late checkout, free Wi-Fi and complimentary breakfast daily for children under 12 years old*.
