and their families joined Olympic legend Dawn Fraser
on Sunday 9 March to officially launch ‘Shipwreck Shores’
, a pirate-themed water fun park at NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Park.
Park manager Brendan Brady said he opened the holiday park to the local community on Sunday in celebration of the new water attraction; a desert island surrounded by a pirate ship and giant sea monsters. “We threw open the doors to Treasure Island for the day so our Gold Coast friends could experience Shipwreck Shores, along with our jumping pillow, face painting, sand art and other free kids activities,” said Mr Brady.
“We wanted to show off the amazing experiences on offer at NRMA Holiday Parks.”
“NRMA Motoring and Services have partnered with Starlight since 2008, and each year, NRMA Holiday Parks have been providing much-needed four-day family holiday escapes to Starlight children and their families,” he said. “The kids were delighted to meet Dawn Fraser and join in the day’s festivities.”
A percentage of the day’s sales from the onsite bistro will also be donated towards Starlight’s innovative total health programs. The water park was named via a Facebook competition last month. The Park’s Facebook fans suggested names, with a panel from NRMA selecting the winning name ‘Shipwreck Shores’. Treasure Island’s mascot Patch was also unveiled as part of the celebrations.
Treasure Island Holiday Park is located at 117 Brisbane Road, Biggera Waters, just a 15-minute drive north of Surfers Paradise and centrally located between all major theme parks - Dreamworld, Movie World, Sea World and Wet n’ Wild.
