Now, that you’ve got your transportation needs covered, it’s time to consider where to go and what to do. To help you get started, here are some of the best family destinations which you can only experience in The Land Down Under.

Brisbane

Queensland’s bustling capital is one of the best places you wouldn’t want to miss. There are plenty of family-friendly spots and fun things to do.

Take your children to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. They can get up close and personal with some of Oz’s most lovable creatures, like cuddling the koalas, feeding the kangaroos and platypuses.

If you want the kids to let loose, visit the South Bank Parklands. They can take a dip in the beach or lagoon or just get their feet wet in the Aquatic water park.

A good way to get your children active is by cycling around the numerous bikeways and shared pathways across Brissy.

Another spot you should check out is the famous Mount Coot-ha. If you’ve ever wanted to experience stunning views overlooking the city, Brisbane Lookout is the perfect place to do just that.

Sydney

No family holiday in Australia is complete without stopping by the world-famous harbour city. With such a wide variety of family-friendly activities to choose from, a day is not enough to experience them all.

 

So, make the most out of your Sydney family adventure by making a quick stop to the iconic Taronga Zoo. Your kids can learn about the broad range of animals, visit the open exhibits, and enjoy some of the best views of the harbour.

Speaking of the harbour, you can hire a boat and take a fun and relaxing cruise with your family. Pull out your camera and start taking selfies with the Sydney Opera House and the Sydney Harbour Bridge as your background. Be the envy of your social media followers.

Melbourne

Victoria’s capital and its surrounding suburbs are full of great spots for young and old alike. If you are pressed for time and can only visit a few places, you should include the following destinations to your list.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, a perfect spot to take a relaxing family picnic and learning about the wide variety of trees and plants.
