How to Plan the Perfect Australian Family Vacation

Family & Living

One of the most popular travel destinations for both young people and people with families is Australia. The diversity and the size of the country allow you to plan any type of vacation you are looking for. Before you even go, it is important to gather all the information and make a plan for your holiday. This means you need to decide on the length of your stay and how you will travel, book the accommodation, set the budget, and plan the activities.

Setting the budget and choosing the time 

If you want to avoid the crowd, especially when going with kids, you should try to avoid summer, since that is peak season, and every part of Australia is filled with tourists. The best time to visit Australia may be autumn since it is still pretty warm, so you can enjoy the beaches, yet it is less hectic, and you will have a more peaceful stay.

Autumn in Australia lasts from March to May, so if possible, plan your trip then. Setting the budget is another important thing, which you should plan before the trip so you don’t have any additional, unexpected expenses.

Of course, the price of your trip depends on how luxurious you want it all. If you opt for camping or hostels, it can be a lot cheaper, and it can also be a great adventure. This works better if your kids are a bit older. For food, you should expect to give around 15-20 AUD, for individual day tours from 30 AUD. 

How to travel to Australia? 

From every part of the world, you can find flights to Sydney which is a city you will not want to skip. If you are staying there, a good tip is to look into private airport transfers in Sydney, which will help you get to your accommodation easily. You don’t have to carry your luggage around, just have everything arranged before you arrive. For cheaper flights for you and your family, we would recommend booking your tickets months before the actual trip because you can get them at a fairly low price. Look into discounts for your kids, which will also help you save some money.

What to visit?

When in Sydney, typical travel destinations like The Opera House, Sydney Harbor, and Bondi Beach are a must. Seeing as how there are activities for the whole family, you can easily plan tours that your kids will enjoy as well, and relax at a beach with a lot of restaurants in the vicinity.

If you and your family enjoy nature, hiking, and relaxing, Cairns is a nice, calm place that allows you to do just that. You can visit the Great Barrier Reef, Botanical Gardens, and the national parks. For some fun, the Gold Coast is the perfect place.

A lot of fun activities like swimming, surfing, and more water sports await you there, plus many amusement parks for your kids and the child in you as well. The gorgeous beaches will make your stay even more enjoyable. Kangaroo Island is another amazing place that both you and your kids will love.

You will be able to see kangaroos, koalas, dolphins, and many more animals. Tasmania is one more attractive travel destination where you can visit lots of museums like the History Museum, Antarctica, and others.

Besides these cultural tours, your family will love the spooky ones like Launceston, Port Arthur, and Hobart. For a fun activity, you can go kayaking.

Australia is a very exciting travel destination because the activities range from cultural and historic visits to water activities and relaxing days spent sightseeing and sunbathing. Many exciting places, amusement parks, museums, and tours will ensure a fun holiday for you and the kids, just make sure you make all the arrangements in advance
