When you're travelling in your own car from let's say Sydney to the Gold Coast, how many times do you think you'd play 'I Spy' or listen to 'Hot Potato'? The answer is - too many!
But why do that, when you can leave the kids at home with the grandparents and go away as a couple, like you used to do 'B.C'. - Before Children?! Park the minivan at the long term car park in Sydney and jump on any flight that tickles your fancy, because you are not bound to your child's nap time!
When you hop off the plane at Gold Coast Airport, you don't need to make the mad dash to the heavily lined bathroom to change a stinky nappy. Instead you can just walk through the terminal, holding each other's hands, to the car hire on-airport desk to collect your economy or even convertible car. Imagine picking up a car that you didn't have to try and squeeze many suitcases, the port-a-cot and pram in!
Spend some time at Jupiter's Casino, without having to worry about babysitters or coming home early.Go to the beach without having to pack a change of clothes for everyone, sand toys and snacks for the day! Think of only having to wash two sets of sandy swimmers and not four or five.
Drive up to Brisbane and have a nice meal at Southbank without the 'noise' at the table or for a childhood experience less the kids enjoy trampolining at many of the trampling centres city wide - they are not just for the little ones!
Go further, driving to Noosa via the Sunshine Coast for a couple of nights, without having to make several toilet stops and enjoying Eumundi Markets without little voices telling you they're bored. A hike on one of the coastal trails is not possible with the little ones pulling at your shirt the whole time, begging you to rest so make the most of it!
For a more luxury experience further north, many resorts in Port Douglas are adult only meaning that you won't see any kids (including your own) for your stay. If you do for some crazy reason bring your children, you can enjoy your relaxing couples massage while they spend the day in the resorts kids club.
You can go anywhere in your hire car, because there are no schedules to follow and no destinations to reach before the kids bedtime. Your kids will always be there when you get back, that is if you can tear them away from the dotting grandparents who feed them Tim tams for breakfast!
