Four things to do these holidays

1. Flip Out

LOCATED at units 16-19/23 Enterprise Ave, Tweed Heads, the trampoline fun house will tire the kids out and provides a roofed option for rainy days.

The large space contains a two arenas – one for teens and one for the little ones. There are foam pits for forward flips, wall runners and trampoline basketball.

Phone: 07 5513 0119.

2. Epic Skate

JUST next door to Flip Out on Enterprise Dr, Epic Skate as the name implies is all about roller blading and roller skating. Parents can have fun too, with adult blades available for hire.

The skate rink was once famously hired by Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their five children, who were staying on the Gold Coast.

Phone: 07 5523 9660.

3. Fruit World

FORGET Dream World and Movie World, when the Tweed has its own fruity theme park at Duranbah. Locals get free entry when they bring along a fee-paying visitor.

It features a miniature train, fruit plantation, fruit tasting, wildlife boat cruise and a cafe featuring local, fresh produce.

Phone: 02 6677 7222.

4. Knox Park

WITH its flying foxes, expansive range of play equipment, covered park benches and nearby skate park, the popular Murwillumbah Adventure Playground has facilities for picnics and play for all ages.

Did we mention it’s free?

If in the mood for a treat, head over to the town’s CBD for a host of cafes and speciality stores. The Regent Cinema offers children’s movies during the holidays.
