What to expect: Your 'Day Away' starts with your scenic cruise across the Great Sandy Strait (ferries depart at 0900 or 1230) – and you can pick your return time home at 2pm, 5pm or 8.30pm. On arrival you'll be met by a Resort Ranger who'll explain the lay of the land and the run down of your day's activities.

The calm waters of the Great Sandy Strait are safe for the family to swim and fish. Plus there are optional water sports, stand-up paddle boards, guided canoe paddles or try a session on the Segways on the beach, for an additional cost. For the bigger children there are tennis courts and for the little ones an Ausplay playground with climbing frames, swings and slides. The resort's Sand Bar restaurant also has two large swimming pools to amuse.

Day Away passes cost $59* for adults and $29* for children aged 4-14.
