An Aussie Adventure Your Kids will Never Forget

June 19, 2017

When it comes to adventure holidays, there are few places on Earth that offer as diverse a range of activities and pursuits as Australia. If you’re planning a personalised Australia holiday, and you’re taking the kids along too, you’ll be spoiled for choice. Here are some of the best family-friendly options to add to your itinerary to make your trip unforgettable.


Enigmatic Sydney should be your first port of call if you’re looking for fun-packed adventures and family days out. There are so many activities on offer here, and you can alternate days of sightseeing and trawling the museums with chilled out afternoons at the beach. Catch a ferry from the iconic harbour over to Manly or head for the famous golden sands of Bondi. If you have animal lovers in your party, a trip to Taronga Zoo comes highly recommended.

The Great Barrier Reef and Tropical Queensland

The Great Barrier Reef is a true wonder of the world, and its vibrant and vivid waters will leave children enchanted. If you have older kids, boat trips out to islands like Green Island are a great way to explore the beauty of the local area and enjoy some excellent swimming and snorkelling opportunities. Back on dry land, you can discover the Queensland rainforests, learn more about the Aboriginal culture and even get your pulses racing at the Gold Coast’s famous theme parks.

Kangaroo Island

Kangaroo Island, as you may have guessed, is a wildlife lover’s paradise. This small but perfectly formed land mass is easily accessible from Adelaide and it offers the chance to enjoy a host of activities, from feeding kangaroos and wallabies to walking, cycling and fishing. Kids will love spotting the seals basking on the rocks of Seal Bay Conservation Park and feeding the pelicans at the wildlife park. There are also beaches aplenty for those who fancy a dip or even a surf lesson.


Brisbane has been touted as Oz’s most child-friendly city and it’s not hard to see why. Catch a boat along the river to enjoy the city views before hopping on the bus and heading to Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, where you can enjoy a cuddle with Australia’s most famous residents, the koalas. You’ll also find wombats and kangaroos here, so get your camera primed and ready for those magical wildlife encounters.

If you’re planning a family holiday down under, you won’t be disappointed! There’s something for everyone and absolutely no risk of hearing those dreaded words, ‘I’m bored!’
