Australia is the perfect family destination, offering a wealth of child-friendly touring and accommodation options, enough to justify the long flight with kids in tow.
For active families wishing to take advantage of the sun-soaked shores and water-based activities, then snorkelling off the great barrier or ningaloo reef should be a high priority, though many also like to include swimming with dolphins or a leisurely kayak paddle on their itineraries.
Family-friendly walking trails are bountiful and range from easily accessible city walks to multiple-day walking excursions. If you want to keep on the go then there are always mountain biking excursions, learn to surf schools, or horse-riding options in various parts of the country, which can be easily incorporated into an itinerary to Australia.
For the less active, organised family-friendly touring options are available to gain an understanding into the Aboriginal heritage of the country, point out unique wildlife in its natural habitats, and of course to take in the country’s iconic attractions. Or you could simply sit back, relax, and take advantage of the facilities on-hand in one of the child-friendly resorts on offer.
