Fun Activities for the Kids
Family time means playtime and there’s plenty of activities to keep the kids engaged right here on the resort.
Elements’ Lagoon Pool Precinct is a dedicated area for our youngest guests to enjoy the water safely. Older kids can enjoy playing in the large temperature-controlled pool where they can splash in the sun. Meanwhile, parents can enjoy some time in the heated spa or recline in a private cabana.
If salt water’s more your thing the whole family can dive into the ocean at Belongil Beach – directly accessible from the resort. Belongil is lifeguard-patrolled at weekends and during summer holidays in the warmer months, and the water is deep enough for a dip but shallow enough at the shoreline for young kids to play safely.

For more adventurous kids, the Parkour-Inspired, all-natural kids’ playground is located among the native rainforest. With a sand base, it’s challenging but safe for kids of all ages (including adults!) to test their agility across a range of obstacles.
Turn a family morning or afternoon into a truly unforgettable experience! Just a short walk from Elements of Byron, you can join the experts at Zephyr Horses. They will match each family member with a highly trained horse, help you get comfortable with the basics in the arena and then guide you through the forest. Don’t forget to watch your children’s faces as the leaves thin and the skies open onto the beach. With very few places where you can leave hoof prints in the sand, this is one of those moments your family will talk about for years to come.
If it’s the thrill of the chase that you seek, then perhaps the Fairy Trail is more your speed. Begin by visiting Reception to get a free, self-guided Fairy Trail Map. Solve the clues and you’ll spot colourful fairy doors on tree trunks or tiny homes hanging amongst the leaves as you walk through the trees, around the duckpond or along Belongil Beach. Don’t forget to head to Breeze, solve an important clue and claim your free slushie. Suitable for all ages, resort guests only.
For something different head to the outdoor games area and play a game of giant chess or bocce with the kids. You can even borrow a tennis kit from reception and have a game, set or match on our all-weather tennis court.
