Where fun plus learning equals inspired kids

We created our own magical wonderland that’s truly inspirational for kids and adults. Set amidst 26 acres of landscaped botanic-like gardens with lots of open space for lawn games, BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort is more than just a great base camp for school excursions and camps. The Palm House cleverly configures classroom set ups, while the resort offers so many activities that are ideal for team building, role playing, problem solving and treasure hunts.

Our 1, 1.5 and 2 day Reef Discovery Programs link to the school science curriculum and feature classes plus activities and can also include a trip to the Great Barrier Reef or the Whitsunday Islands and fringing reefs.

Our Groups and Events Co-ordinator and fantastic, knowledgeable team can help you organise educational experiences that perfectly suit your school group’s educational aims while enjoying the natural beauty of the Whitsundays. We’ve teamed up with Whitsunday Training to offer a range of Reef Discovery Programs including 1, 1.5 and 2 day options, with an educational focus on the Great Barrier Reef. These engaging and educational experiences have been designed to link into the science curriculum. Learning has never been this much fun. We can also organise a day out exploring Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays by either tailoring your own trip or joining a regular tour.

Conference Venue


From camping to cabins we offer a range of school group accommodation at special school group rates. And after a day out learning and discovering, BIG4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort (recently crowned the best of its kind in Australia) is ready to entertain and delight with mini golf, the lagoon pool with water slides, table tennis, basketball, cricket, soccer, giant jumping pillows and adventure playground. We can organise activities like your own Outdoor WII Just Dance Disco, Try Scuba, Movie Nights and more, all in a completely self-contained, safe environment so parents and teachers can even relax. It all adds up to the best school trip ever.

Venue Facilities


You can’t learn on an empty tummy so we’ve got all that covered with a yummy menu of catering options that can be completely tailored to suit your specific group’s needs and wants. Start the day with a continental breakfast, grab a lunch pack to go for your day’s discoveries and then come back for a dinner to fuel up again. Whatever your group needs, we’ll make sure it’s on the menu.
