Themed Breaks on the Gold Coast

Themed breaks are a great way to enjoy the best of Our Getaway and the Gold Coast.

There’s something to suit most interests with several new events for 2021. We aim to keep groups to similar ages and interests so you can come with friends or maybe make some new ones!

Staying at Our Getaway short term accommodation means you will have 24 hour support, your own room with TV and en-suite, meals provided and lots of fun too.

Here’s the lineup for the rest of 2021 but remember you can also book your own individual stay at Our Getaway or design your own break with a group of friends. As well as disability holidays, Our Getaway offers respite breaks, emergency care and post-hospital stays. See the main page for more details.
