The Christmas season and New Year's Eve bring the most awaited times which can be spent by the family members, friends and other individuals for bonding moments and meaningful experiences that in one way or another, may help them improve their capabilities, character and values, all while keeping them inspired.


ClubMates Travel has lovingly crafted these two supported holidays in December that promise extraordinary activities that overflow with fun-filled and inspirational experiences, as you welcome the New Year in Australia’s most captivating destinations!


Spectacular Gold Cost NYE


Taking the heart-pumping rides, seeing your favorite movie characters and watching the attractive parades at Movie World gives a sense of pride in being able to try a new activity. It also provides utmost entertainment that you do not usually encounter on a regular day!


The Glow Worm Cave exhibits the enchanting Glow World Alley that displays thousands of glowing and dazzling Glow Worms in a purpose-built habitat,  showing their distinct characteristics which are not  often seen in ordinary settings. Watching the magical glow of worms and seemingly looking at them like a blanket of stars twinkling up in the sky is simply mesmerizing and you will not help but think of the wonders of such living things that bring to the humans!

A visit to the zoo, especially at a heritage-listed zoological garden like the ones at the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, never fails to bring excitement not only to children but also to adults. Witnessing the animals in the zoo help the visitors realize that animals have the same needs with those of the human beings and taking good care of them will help them live longer. The caring insights learned will help them understand animals more, and learning their behaviors allows them to be more loving and kinder to these creatures.


The time spent at The Australian Outback Spectacular is a thrilling escapade that ultimately provides fascinating activities for participants of all ages. The learning insights from the musical experiences, entertainment options and stimulating excursions promote creativity and decision-making; and the real life conditions and experiences provide challenges that help improve one's problem-solving skills, as they revel in the raw beauty and worthwhile exquisiteness of nature. 


Overlooking at the panorama of the wonders made by God at QDeck gives an enriching feeling. The experience provides the sense of thankfulness and appreciation. It is not a wonder why many people enjoy the heights such as dining at a rooftop bar, mountain climbing or simply sightseeing on top of a world-renowned structure as the moment when one reaches the top gives the feeling of serenity, and that of being at peace with oneself; or basking in the splendor of the environment as they are being enveloped with the beautiful sights.

Woodwork Folk Festival


December is a very good time to rejoice, and attending the Woodford Folk Festival is a good way to spend the end of the year and celebrate the forthcoming year with our families and friends, peppered with melodies and songs. Having fun with our loved ones while savoring the rhythm of music lift up the spirits and gives the participants the zest and the motivation to face the adversities of life. Indeed, the love for music is more defined when it is enjoyed with the people close to our hearts!


Families, friends and groups of people find watching a circus performance a very good activity to bond, take pleasure in the show and just learn from the presentation the importance of adaptability, initiative, some sense of responsibility and a great amount of flexibility to succeed in one's chosen endeavor. Education is a lifelong process, and for some reasons, many important life skills are better learned from the out-of-the-box learning experiences. A circus is an adventure to which each act leaves the audience breathless and totally enthralled by the death-defying acts and stunts. One comes out of the show refreshed, with new self-discoveries and newfound knowledge which may help seal a long-time dream or perhaps keep one to be more persevering and more eager to practise self-discipline.

Handfeeding the animals is an opportunity that gives pure joy because the interaction with these creatures provides a genuinely exciting and memorable experience. At the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, those who have enjoyed handfeeding the animals or cuddling a cute koala bear are able to overcome the fear that the animal may have a violent behavior when handfed by a stranger. Some people refuse to handfeed an animal even if the zookeeper gives the assurance that the animal is used to handfeeding simply because they do not want to take chances. Taking chances is tantamount to taking risks. When a person gambles on the chance between success and failure — and finds later that it was alright to take risks — he realizes that in this life, to achieve success, one has to face fears and learn to accept limitations. It's inspiring to know that we can learn so many virtues on a simple trip to the zoo!


Cruising on Birbie Island as a special New Year celebration for the family is definitely a great bonding experience for the family members. The appetizing food, fine accommodations, topnotch amenities and engaging activities onboard a cruise ship and the services it can offer provide an exceptional NYE celebration. While cruising, the children will have the chance to nurture their sense of curiosity on how people can have immense pleasure aboard a moving water vessel. Adults can have fun in a myriad of activities or can simply gain new realizations as they watch the crashes of the waves. Man's infinite curiosity, creativity and innovative ideas coupled with business sense have made possible the unique experience and satisfaction that can only be found on a cruising holiday.


Everyone has been searching for meaningful sense of values. The need to see things through the experiences shared with the loved ones help every individual to search the ideals and the right examples to follow. Learning is not always taught. Most often, it is caught. It only goes to show that a supported holiday can help an individual become a well-rounded person through a plenitude of encounters.  The fibers of honesty, integrity, courage, kindness, respect for authority and more are part and parcel of one's character that can be developed from the above activities during one's lifetime.
