To achieve this vision, we offer quality accommodation, facilities, meeting spaces, instructor-led activities and delicious healthy catering. We promote safe and exciting participation in outdoor recreation and have all the skills to deliver the ideal experience for you and your group.

We have 2 incredible locations on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, perfectly situated for you to experience the best of what Queensland has to offer—sun, surf and coastal waterways. Speaking of surf, our world famous beaches Tallebudgera and Currimundi provide the perfect backdrop for you to enjoy all the things our centres have to offer.

Our instructor-led activities provide safe and challenging new experiences which let you get out of your comfort zone and have fun. Our activities are delivered by our fully trained and accredited instructors utilising high-standard facilities and equipment.

Each centre has a range of facilities that are flexible enough to suit a variety of needs. We have hosted many functions and events including conferences, meetings and sporting tournaments. Bookings can be made for our whole site or one court.

Child safety and protection

The Queensland Recreation Centres are committed to the protection and safety of the children and young people who visit our centres. We recognise that irrespective of their age, cultural background, gender or personal characteristics, they have the right to be protected, respected, heard, nurtured and valued. To ensure this, we have an inclusive and integrated Child Protection Strategy that applies to all employees, support staff, contractors and clients. Our strategy includes:

  • Child Protection Policy and Procedure
  • Code of Conduct for interacting with children and young people
  • Blue Card requirements for staff and contractors
  • Mandatory child protection training for all staff

This strategy has been developed in line with the Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000 and provides direction to ensure the protection and care of children and young people at our centres.

Accessibility

Our centres have inclusive facilities and activities equipped to accommodate people with accessibility needs. We have accommodation, sports and dining facilities that are wheelchair accessible. Most of our activities can be modified to suit people with accessibility needs through the use of purpose made universal harnesses and all terrain wheelchairs enabling beach access. Our experienced instructors are trained in modifying activities to deliver safe experiences for people of all abilities.

Our people are at the heart of your Queensland Recreation Centres experience. Whether it’s designing a camp to suit your needs, delivering activities to achieve a specific outcome or providing assistance during your visit, our highly trained staff will go above and beyond to make your experience unforgettable.
