It’s natural to want to get away from the hustle and bustle of home during the holidays. If that is your wish and you’re looking for a place for your family to unwind and truly enjoy the summer and Christmas season, how about spending some time in the tropical island cove of Pine Lake Elanora?
The Isle of Palms Resort provides absolute tranquillity with a range of fully self-contained townhouses and villas. Instead of holiday apartments, the resort has a selection of spacious two-storey townhouses ideal for families and large groups.
Some have two, three, or four bedrooms, open-plan living areas, full kitchens, and the option of a private garden or a waterfront deck on the sparkling lake’s edge. In addition, the resort has two swimming pools, two heated spas, two full-size tennis courts, undercover barbecue areas, and a games room.
The picturesque setting of Isle of Palms accommodation tucked away from main roads and noise but only 3 kilometres from Palm Beach and Currumbin Beach, makes it unique. The two adjacent beaches provide a relaxed atmosphere, pristine sand, and patrolled waters. These beaches will undoubtedly provide a pleasant day for your family. Aside from the stunning coastal views, there are also some popular beachfront restaurants and cafés!
Though the resort has covered barbecue areas, feel free to explore the Southern Gold Coast’s dining scene. Famous surf clubs, cafés, and restaurants along the beachfront offer stunning ocean views and diverse menus.
Las Palmas serves Latin American flavours from Colombia, Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, and beyond, expertly crafted by executive chef Dayron Concepcion. Wildernis Cafe & Bar serves modern-inspired dishes that are both fresh and honest. They also create fine coffee and drinks from the bar.
If you want a Christmas family meal, The Tropic Restaurant in Burleigh Heads is a short drive away. The Tropic is a charming full-service restaurant located at the northern end of the famous Burleigh Pavilion dining spot. This relaxed but premium dining experience, surrounded by sun and sea spray, offers the fresh Mediterranean and modern Australian menu. The restaurant offers a special Christmas at The Tropic experience.
Do you want to learn more about the natural beauty of the area? Currumbin Creek is just a short distance away, as are Currumbin Valley, Tallebudgera Valley, Palm Beach Parklands, and Burleigh Head National Park. Elanora and its surroundings have an abundant natural beauty to discover for nature lovers, bushwalkers, and picnickers.
Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, the Gold Coast’s leading wildlife attraction, is an excellent place for kids to spend the day. Hundreds of animals, educational presentations, and up-close encounters are available at this must-see attraction.
On Christmas Day, the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary may be closed. If you go earlier, especially on a Friday, you can go to the Sanctuary Markets at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary on the Village Green.
You can sample a wide range of international cuisines at the Sanctuary Markets. They have Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Brazilian, Turkish, Venezuelan, South African, and Chilean cuisine. Craft stalls are in the Green’s undercover area, plus a produce market will be open to selling Asian greens, fresh produce and eggs. If you want Australian seafood, head to the Sanctuary’s parking lot. Food can be consumed on-site or taken away.
