8 Fun-Filled Reasons to Book Your Next Vacation Care Excursion With Us

8 Fun-Filled Reasons to Book Your Next Vacation Care Excursion With Us

You know you want an action-packed Vacation Care excursion on the Gold Coast... But ‘where?’ Let our friendly team at Putt Putt Mermaid Beach take your next outing to the next level! From mini golf activities and lunchtime facilities, parking and shade – we cover it all!

As a Gold Coast icon on the main highway in Mermaid Beach, we’ve remained a popular option for Vacation Care groups for decades. We invite you to check out what to expect when you book your next Vacation Care excursion with us.

3 Fantastically Themed Putt Putt Courses

We love seeing kids' faces light up when they discover our magical putt putt courses! The best part is, they don’t have to choose just one to play. Our affordable group packages mean kids can play unlimited games all day long.

Each course takes around 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete, depending on group sizes and we recommend teams of 4 playing on each hole. This way, the games move on quickly and everyone gets a turn! Kids who often get distracted love this fast pace too and in our experience, keep their eye on the prize!

Here’s what to expect from each dazzling course.....

An explosion of colour, whimsical characters and tricky motorised obstacles - That's just the beginning! Fight off a medieval dragon, whiz around our loop de loop and visit a castle worthy of a fairy tale ending (your hole in one). Time your putt to perfection at the spinning windmill, pass through pirate’s treasure and a not too spooky haunted house. Play rain or shine with all 18 holes covered by waterproof shade sails.



Take a walk on the wild side in our tropical Jungle Trail. Get amongst our tribe of animals, have a chat with a talking parrot, meet the ‘King of the Jungle’ himself, hug a big ol’ grizzly bear and see some friendly elephants who really love the sound of their own trumpets as you putt away on safari.



Waterways Course

Did someone say putt putt paradise? Get all swept up in a tropical oasis of cascading waterfalls, cheeky turtles, shipwrecked pirates and a frolicking dolphin on our Waterways Course. Hang out along the shimmering blue lagoon, tip toe over wooden bridges and take on the challenge of our Tiki spinners.
