Travelling to Australia with Your Family

There are many places in the world you could visit with your family. Almost any destination will have family-friendly locations or elements. So, it would be nigh on impossible to tackle all of your options in just one post. For now, let’s focus on Australia - including the best ways to travel the country with your family and some of the top things you can do there!

Getting to Australia

Unless you happen to live in New Zealand, chances are you’re going to be taking a pretty long flight to reach Australia. This can be unappealing to some families for various reasons. Little ones can often get anxious or irritable on particularly long flights. So, if you do take this flight, make sure to bring along plenty of distractions for them. An alternative can be to extend your trip and to stop off in one or two countries on the way to Australia and on your return route home.

Getting Around Australia

Australia is a very spread out country, with most commonly visited cities and towns being located around the coast. Generally speaking, it’s best to consider people movers while on vacation with your little ones. This will give them plenty of room, as well as room for luggage, and gives you the freedom to easily travel wherever you please!

Things to Do

So, what shall you do while you’re in Australia? Here are some top attractions and ideas that can keep everyone happy and content!

The Great Barrier Reef

One of the most popular attractions in Australia is, of course, the Great Barrier Reef. This is the world’s biggest and most renowned coral reef. It’s made up of over 3000 different reef systems and coral cays and is extremely biodiverse. You’ll be able to see thousands of beautiful fish (such as clownfish, lionfish, and coral trout), turtles (including loggerheads, green sea turtles, leatherbacks, flatbacks, and the olive ridley) and thirty species of whales, dolphins and porpoises. If your little ones aren’t into swimming or snorkeling, you can always go on glass bottom boats for a safe and entrancing experience!


We all like beaches. Often adults like to kick back and relax in the sun. Generally, kids like to build sandcastles. So why not visit some of the world’s most famous, like Bondi Beach? Just make sure to keep the kids regularly topped up with plenty of sunscreen and don’t let them in the sea if there are warning signs.
Sydney Opera House

If you’re looking for a night out, sometimes there are family friendly shows on at the Sydney Opera House. If there’s nothing on that takes your fancy, it’s still great to visit for pictures outside this famous attraction as a family!

As you can see, Australia really does have a lot to offer families. Hopefully, the above advice will help you to start planning your trip!
