Family Holidays

Let us inspire you for your next family getaway...

“Are we there yet?”–the classic question every child has yelled out whilst squished next to their siblings in the backseat of the car during a road trip. Nothing says making memories quite like family holidays....

Excitedly packing your suitcase, bringing your favourite book to read on the ride, fighting with your sibling for the window seat, doing belly flops in the swimming pool, and counting heads to make sure no one gets left behind, like Kevin from Home Alone.

Best family holiday destinations around Australia

Those two weeks of school holidays are the perfect time for a little family staycation. No need for passports or long plane journeys, the whole family can hop in the car and explore the very best their state has to offer. From finding gold in Ballarat to spending a weekend in nature in Bright or splashing about in a pool in tropical Cairns or heading on a road trip along the Great Ocean Road or up the Western Australian coast.

Maybe you prefer a city break instead? From theme parks to aquariums, Sydney and Melbourne, in particular, are great for a family weekend getaway. Don’t forget to head to the footy, too?

Hop on a plane and head on a family-friendly holiday

If your family is more the type to take one big holiday annually, there are some great holiday destinations for kids that will have you making memories that will last a lifetime.

Build sandcastles on a beach in Fiji or Thailand, learn how to ski in Queenstown or ride a train through a tunnel lined with glow worms in New Zealand’s Hamilton.

Forget Wet’n’Wild, why not try out one of Dubai’s best water parks–while the kids conquer the slides, you can head off on a shopping spree at Dubai Mall, the world’s largest shopping centre. Or simply head to the happiest place on Earth, Disneyland.
