McIntyres connect by disconnecting

A POSSE of walkie-talkie-toting kids is having a biking blast at least one Eurobodalla holiday park.

Every summer, Canberra’s James and Abi McIntyre find themselves part of an instant gang at Batemans Bay Beach Resort, with members of all ages hailing from far-flung places.

Throw in the beach, a maze of paths, bicycles and plastic walkie-talkies and you’ve got kid-heaven.

Abi, 10, finds the technology particularly useful.

“Sometimes we follow each other and we can do pranks and play hide and seek,” she said.

James, 13, loves the gang.

“We come here every summer and weekends throughout the year,” he said.

“My favourite things are the beaches and how we get to play and how we can make new friends around the park.”

Mum Min loves getting away from Canberra.

“No make-up, no hair-styling,” she said.

Apart from the walkie-talkies, electronics are banned until 5pm.

“To see the kids having fun running around without their electronics is great,” she said.

With husband and father Stu, the family is here for two weeks.
