What do you need for the perfect family holiday? Good weather? Well priced spacious accommodation? Lots of free activities? Attractions suitable for kids? Something to do if the weather turns bad? Or, all of the above?
Keeping the kids entertained during the school holidays can be a challenge especially in the middle of winter! I can hear the cries of parents around the country as the July school holidays approach at an alarmingly rapid rate, “What am I going to do with them for two weeks?” Well, a mini holiday is a great way to fill a few days without breaking the bank.
I have fond memories as a child of visiting the Big Pineapple in Woombye, the Big Banana in Coffs Harbour, and the Big Merino in Goulburn, three of the iconic large fibreglass structures that Australia has become famous for.
A family road trip is not only a great way to see the countryside, but can also be a great bonding experience. Spending part of each day confined in the car provides lots of opportunities for conversation, therefore, the fastest route is not always the best.
Whether you’re looking for an adventure holiday, a beachside holiday or something completely out of the ordinary for your next family vacation, Australia has it and so much more. No matter what your budget, time frame or holiday preferences there’s a plethora of amazing destinations within Australia waiting to be explored.
