School holiday staycations that won’t break the bank

School holiday ‘cabin fever’ can take on new meaning for the kids this July, with a cabin staycation in one of Australia’s sunniest locations providing an affordable break the whole family can enjoy.

Discovery Parks Chief Operating Officer Michaela Webster says that families don’t need to head to Europe or Asia to escape the cold these school holidays.

“Every family deserves some time together to reconnect and discover what matters, but in reality, holidays are seen as unaffordable by many Aussie families,” said Michaela.

“With the Australian dollar at a near decade low, we are seeing more Australians choose to holiday at home than ever before - and with good reason.”

“Australia is ranked as one of the top tourist destinations in the world, and it’s not too late to explore your own backyard this school holidays. Cabins, villas, and camping sites are still available at some of our sunniest destinations like Airlie Beach, Townsville, Hervey Bay, Tannum Sands, Kununurra and Darwin. Glamping is also an option,” she said.

Better yet, those who book online with a G’DAY Rewards membership before 30 June and spend over $300 will receive 10,000 flybuys bonus points in addition to the existing $50 discount per stay.

A G’DAY Rewards membership makes family holidays even more affordable with exclusive deals and benefits at Australia's largest network of holiday parks.
