NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Park Resort, Gold Coast review


We’re partnering with NRMA holiday parks to show you around their family-geared, feature-packed holiday parks!

NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort is a beautiful holiday park in the heart of the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia.

Perfectly located close to both Surfers Paradise and the big Gold Coast theme parks, Treasure Island is designed especially so that your family has a great stay. Whilst the nearby attractions are fabulous, this stunning holiday park has such a wide range of entertainment options on-site that it will have you wondering why you would even need to venture outside of it!

Arr – welcome, Pirates all!

From the moment you pull up at the entrance of NRMA Treasure Island, it’s clear you’re in for a hearty good time! A shipwreck complete with parrot hanging from its crows nest embellish the Reception building. Pirate warnings and a skull in a treasure chest sitting atop the boom gate have the kids squealing from the get-go. This is no ordinary holiday park!

This super-fun pirate theme is brilliantly incorporated right across the holiday park. From the main swimming pool with it’s ship and water cannons, to skulls and crossbones at the spas and waterparks  -and life-size pirate figures keeping a salty eye upon it all – NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort is a family delight.

A dog friendly Gold Coast holiday park!

As we are travelling with our fourth family member – our adorable (and a little salty herself, at times) Sweetums the Miniature Schnauzer, we needed to find a pet-friendly caravan park. I was thrilled to discover that NRMA Treasure Island welcomes dogs, cats and even birds. A game changer, this means you can still have your Queensland holiday with no need to leave your beloved pets at home (or for the added holiday expense of a boarding kennel!).

Treasure Island offers pet friendly cabins, camping, motorhome and caravan sites. Plus there’s even the luxurious option of an en-suite site, which was our choice. Holidaying with dogs never felt so good!

NRMA Treasure Island swimming pools

Treasure Island swimming pools

Treasure Island swimming pools are lots of fun!

There are four swimming pools at NRMA Treasure Island. All of them have surrounding quality lounges, shade – and of course a good supply of pool noodles and pool floaties!

The Riverside Pool is a peaceful oasis

The Riverside Pool is a peaceful oasis

The first pool we visited was the Riverside Pool, which as the name suggests, is located adjacent to the lovely Biggera Creek canal – complete with houseboats! Townhouse Riverside Villas are located around one side of this quiet, picturesque swimming pool. A peaceful oasis, this is where you go for a relaxing sun lounge or swim.

The stunning Lagoon Pool has its own waterfall

Pool number two that we visited was the Lagoon Pool, complete with gorgeous palms and a cascading waterfall. This pool area also plays host to two waterfall spas! Surrounded by beautiful Lagoon Deluxe Villas, this is a gorgeous pool to lounge by to the dulcet sounds of a waterfall.

The Treasure Island Lagoon Pool

Last but not least is the beautiful resort main pool. This huge area is actually two more large heated pools in one area plus a canal snaking from a slide pool.

A fun waterslide tips its riders down a slope and into the main pool, which also has a sloped beach-style access inwards, making it especially accessible. A pirate ship juts out between the two big pools housing squirting water cannons for the kids to shoot each other with.

Aaar - watch out for the squirting water cannons!

Arr – watch out for the squirting water cannons!

Whilst we visited all the swimming pools more than once, the main pool complex was our favourite, especially in the evenings when the pool is lit up a vibrant blue!

Resort Water Park

Yep – this Gold Coast holiday park has it’s own water play park included! Shipwreck Shores Waterpark is pirate themed of course (aaaar!) and a whole lot of fun. The kids will love this large water feature with tons of squirty, water splashing fountains of fun!

Dodge through the fountain tunnels, get thoroughly soaked under the spouting dragon and get ready for the big skull and crossbones bucket – it’s a huge dunk that will have the kids screaming with laughter!

A jumping pillow and tennis court

In addition to all the organised free fun there are plenty more activities to do anytime during the day, such as the big, shaded bouncy pillow. My girls gave this jumping pillow a big thumbs up for both bounciness – and a view of the movie screen!

There’s a full-sized court for sports such as tennis and basketball too, which is also incorporated in to the activity program.

From the dedicated toddler and pre-schooler playground located near the main pool, to playgrounds big enough for my teenagers, the park playgrounds are a lot of fun – and help burn off some of that boundless kid holiday energy!

My kid’s loved the big slide next to the jumping pillow. There’s another playground located outside of an amenities and laundry area.

The Tiny Tots playground is an adorable adventure for toddlers

Don’t worry, us adults are catered for too – our playground is an outdoor gym! That’s if you’ve got any energy left from the jumping pillow (or all those margaritas by the pool!)

Movies Under The Stars

Movies Under The Stars at Treasure Island

One of our favourite things to do at Treasure Island was watch Movies Under The Stars. Screening several times a week, this outdoor cinema is a real hit. All the latest family movie hits are played – we saw Scoob, Onward, Disney’s Frozen 2 and Mulan during our stay. Many families take a picnic blanket or camp chairs to settle down in the deliciously balmy Queensland weather to watch the movie. For added fun, my kids would sometimes choose to watch it whilst they were bouncing on the Jumping Pillow!

Go Kart hire and Mini Golf Course

Mini Golf is hilarious at times, and anyone can play!

As if that isn’t enough things for families to do together at Treasure Island, other popular paid activities include Go-Karts (helmets are provided) to peddle around the park and a 18-hole Holey Moley Mini Golf course at just $4 per person. There’s DVD and Chess hire too.

NRMA members pay half price

Many paid resort activities are discounted by 50% if you are an NRMA Blue Member! That’s a great holiday money saver for the family budget.

Bistro and bar

NRMA Treasure Island park facilities

Every necessary and useful holiday park facility can be found at Treasure Island.

There’s a Reception, a basics shop that also sells ice creams (the ultimate holiday essential!) and a great Bistro for easy no-washing-up family meals that every mum and dad needs!

The park itself is a tropical delight with extensive gardens and connecting pathways, all kept immaculately. A cast of what seems like thousands of staff circulate to ensure everything is ship-shape (aaar, me hearties!) and in order. This is a holiday that is seamless, easy and fuss-free for holiday makers.

Two laundries on site

There are two laundries at Treasure IslandTired at queueing at holiday park laundries? At Treasure Island there’s not one laundry but two!

Spending half your life waiting or watching for a washing machine on your holiday whilst your kids have fun without you isn’t an issue at this holiday park!

The perfect Gold Coast holiday base

There’s no doubt about it – the NRMA Treasure Island Holiday Resort makes a fantastic Queensland holiday base, with all the big Gold Coast attractions just minutes away.

Located at Biggera Waters near Labrador in Queensland, NRMA Treasure Island is around half an hour from the NSW-Queensland border at Tweed Heads. It’s approximately 35 minutes taxi or Uber ride from the Gold Coast Airport, 9 hours drive up the Pacific Highway and M1 motorway from Sydney, and around an hour’s drive to Brisbane (slightly longer in peak-hour traffic).

This makes Treasure Island the perfect Brisbane weekend retreat or Gold Coast family holiday choice.
