There are some must-buy items to get once you've reached your holiday destination. Must-buy items at your holiday destination

Planning your next family vacation away can be a chaotic task, especially when it comes to packing for your trip.

While there are plenty of things you'll need to pack before you leave for your Queensland family holiday, there are a few items that you'll definitely want to pick up at your destination!

Whether you're heading to the beautiful beaches of the Gold Coast or getting up close to all the sights of the Great Barrier Reef in Tropical North Queensland, here are some of our picks for the must-buy items at your holiday destination.

Fun-filled photos

The Gold Coast is renowned for its wide range of water sports and activities, and tour companies will often provide action-packed snapshots of your activities (such as jetboating and jetskiing) that are available for purchase afterwards.

These make a great memento of your vacation - and even better, uploading one of these fun snaps to your Facebook profile is a great way to share your experiences with your friends (and perhaps make them a little jealous!).

Local cuisine

Sampling the best of the local cuisine at your holiday destination is definitely a must-buy item!

Eating great food that's been produced and made locally is one of the best ways to truly relax, and enjoy your family holiday, so go all out on the culinary front the next time your family goes on vacation.

If you're unsure of which restaurants are the best in your particular area, there are plenty of rankings, lists and guides online to help you choose, such as the restaurant section on TripAdvisor.

Souvenirs

While photos and videos can be great memory-joggers and reminders of your trip, sometimes nothing can bring back the feeling of being in that perfect holiday destination quite like an authentic souvenir picked up from the area.

The local markets are a great place to pick up a unique reminder of your travels, as they often have a great range of handmade crafts from local artists that the typical tourist shops don't stock - if you're heading to Cairns on your trip, the Esplanade Market is packed with interesting stalls and is located conveniently near Mantra Esplanade, one of Mantra's hotels in Cairns.
