Is your family toy box brimming with dolls, lego, action figures and everything in between? This Christmas, give less stuff and more stories with an enriching experience from RedBalloon. From surf lessons and high ropes courses to animal encounters and mini makeovers, here are some incredible Christmas gift ideas that don’t come in a plastic box. Gift the kids the chance to make memories this Christmas – it’s always better when you can share an experience together!
Treat them to a learn to surf lesson at Australia’s first ever surf park. An experienced coach will teach them how to ride gentle rolling waves in a safe, controlled environment. They’ll leave with the skills and confidence to conquer the big blue.
Instead of the kids driving you crazy climbing the walls at home, let them run wild and release their energy on a high ropes course suspended in the treetops!
Do you know a young princess who loves to be pampered? Spoil her with 45 minutes of head-to-toe pampering at a specialised kids’ beauty salon. She’ll munch on a cupcake and sip on pink lemonade as she wears a silky robe and is treated to a chocolate facial, glitter braids, mini manicure and pedicure. All beauty products are natural and vegan.
Does your child love computer games? Imagine if they could experience what it’s like to step inside one! This interactive high-tech virtual reality game will have them flying through space, teleporting, defeating enemies and solving mysteries. We have a feeling they’re going to LOVE it.
This is an animal encounter experience like no other. Forget glass walls between you and the animals – at this experience, the ocean is the tank and you get to dive right in, as well as feed the fish!
Does your child dream of running off with the circus? Now they can – for a 2 hour holiday workshop! They’ll learn how to make human pyramids, juggle 3 balls, hula hoop, hang from the low trapeze and swing on the high trapeze.
Perfect for the animal loving child in your life, this experience begins with a scenic cruise along the Swan River to the famous Perth Zoo. Here they’ll spend the day getting up close and personal with native and exotic animals. Choose to wander the zoo at your own pace or tag along on a free 1 hour walking tour.
For a Christmas gift they’ll rave about for years to come, surprise them with 1 hour of fun at the Gold Coast Wake Park. Suitable for all ability levels, they’ll have a blast carving up the water cable skiing, wakeboarding or kneeboarding.
Looking to treat the whole family? A trip to the aquarium offers something for everyone. Explore the mysterious world of sea creatures, surround yourself with massive sharks and stingrays, and waddle your way to the icy waters of Antarctica, home to the regal king and gentoo penguins.
At Infinity Attraction, they’ll experience sensory overload as they enter a psychedelic wonderland filled with spectacular special effects, trippy music and awesome illusions.
