Our New Affordable Family Holiday Package

How often do you travel for business with no choice but to leave family and loved ones behind? As soon as people hear you’re travelling, be it for business or otherwise, they tend to automatically assume you’re going to have a fun holiday time in some exotic location. This often isn’t the case, but what if it could be?

There’s been a recent increase in what the trendy people like to call “bleisure”. It’s “business” combined with “leisure”. Basically, if you have to travel for business, you might as well have a bit of fun and relaxation while you’re at it. Maybe even bring the family along for the ride; work/life balance and all that.

Here at Robertson Gardens, we’ve been doing a bit of research on this “bleisure” concept and how it applies to our guests and potential guests (i.e. you). Taking on-board the insights we’ve received from many different types of guests over the years and then applying these insights to industry trends like “bleisure”, it’s become apparent that we can be not only the perfect accommodation option for business on the Brisbane southside, but also a great base of operations for your next family holiday. Even if you’re not travelling on business, we’ve deduced that our little gem of a property has A LOT of great family events and venues surrounding it, making it a superb hub for your next family holiday.

With this realisation, we’ve made available until the end of the year a special deal for families wanting solid, affordable, and above all family friendly accommodation for their next holiday. It doesn’t matter if you’re a “bleisure” traveller with the family in tow, or if you’re just looking to book that annual family escape – you can book today via the linked website and take advantage of our 2 Bedroom Apartments for $199/night (up to 4 people). Stay for at least 3 nights and you’ll get to enjoy a full, hearty buffet breakfast for the whole family every morning, completely free.

So, if you’ve been assigned the responsibility of planning this year’s family trip, click here to head over to the booking page and have a deeper look into what’s on offer in and around Robertson Gardens. Be sure to take advantage of this deal while it’s still available.

If you think this offer is looking pretty juicy, but you can’t book right now due to our conditions or your own personal reasons, email or call us and we’ll do our very best to sort out something that will work you and your family.

Back to the Books


Many parents in Queensland this week will be taking deep breaths as they send their kids back to school for another year. The Australia day public holiday is tomorrow (yes!), so it’ll be a short one, but soon enough their holiday boredom will turn into school boredom. If you haven’t already, there are loads of back-to-school sales occurring right now, so it’s a good time to hit the shops and grab some bargains.

On another note, well-timed with the start of the semester is the upcoming “Safer Internet Day”, on the 9th of February. This age of technology has done wonders for quick and easy communication, education, and sharing, but this ease of use can actually be quite dangerous; Cyberbullying is a very real threat to children of all ages. Safer Internet Day is a global celebration intended to raise awareness of cyberbullying and safe internet practices that can be implemented to avoid online drama. A virtual presentation by the day’s spokespersons, aimed at upper primary students, will assist students to:

  • understand the possible consequences of posting images
  • be a good bystander
  • communicate online respectfully
  • understand how to report inappropriate material and contact


If you or your children miss it, don’t worry, a quick Google search will reveal a ton of resources online for handling this topic. And it’s not only a c   oncern for primary aged students, but for people of all ages – even in a lot of adult workplaces, these issues can arise. It always pays to be mindful of the ever changing school environment, and we wish you all the best with your little ones over the coming school year. 🙂
