    Thanks everyone!

    Not her first visit but the last visit was back when DD was 8 months old... DD is now 7... so I mean she was about 10-ish at the time... we stayed on the GC for that, her family and DD, ex-DP and me... she's already done the Theme Park thing but it was ages ago. DD and I have VIP passes for Movie World/Sea World/Wet n Wild so we can easily do that... we'll just get her one too.

    We're Northside Bris... so we can do GC, it just takes a while to get there.

    You're right in that she probably doesn't really care if she doesn't do much... I guess I first went to her state when I was only 2 years older than she is now, and I was happy to mostly just bludge around. Her mother is 10 years older than me (as I am her)... and I just enjoyed hanging out with her I guess. So I suppose it shouldn't be too bad.

    I'm just worried. I've never had to care for another person before... this will pretty much be my first ever house guest (That I'm responsible for). lol.

    Sunshine Coast then. 16yos love a bit of glamour - go to Noosa for the day and people watch.

    Then visit pretty much any of the beaches.

    Plus, having your DD around means things like theme parks and Australia zoo are acceptable because she can pretend she is going there to make your DD happy and not because she also wants to!

    Montville is really nice too.... Lots of little nick nacky shops and the pie shop!
    And there are glow worm caves that are pretty cool.. Can't remember where they were but if you google it it will tell you

    After seeing this thread, I looked up Infinity - looks great - will arrange a visit next time I'm on the Gold coast.

    However, I did get a chuckle when I saw that it said no children in backpacks. I'm assuming it means no children in slings or baby carriers. I just laughed picturing people shoving their kids in their backpacks to avoid paying entrance fees.

    We went to infinity when we were there recently its awesome! Some parts scared the hell out of my 5year old dd though lol
    Also the aqua duck is good for sight seeing, although a 16 year old might think its lame. I enjoyed it!
