Australia receives over 6 million visitors every year, mostly made up of tourists – families and holiday makers all looking for a world class experience in an iconic destination, so it goes without saying that every Australian doesn’t need to look any further than their own backyard when trying to find a family holiday package to suit their needs, lifestyle and budget.

With that in mind, let’s explore this great southern land of ours and find the best family holiday destinations.

1. Sea World Resort & Water Park

The ultimate playground – for kids of ALL ages and one of the first places we think of for a great family holiday experience. Their holiday packages are designed with families in mind, and whether you are splashing out at Sponge Bob World, relaxing in the spa while the children go wild at Kids Club, or taking in the Dolphin Discovery, you’ll never have a dull moment from arrival to departure.

2. Hamilton Island - Great Barrier Reef Australia

No great Australian family holiday list would be complete without a mention of the Great Barrier Reef, and there are a number of island destinations available depending on budget and needs.

In terms of value for money and child friendliness though, Hamilton Island is the definite choice. Take the kids for a Catamaran ride, enjoy the Deep Sea Turtle Discovery, or drop them off at Clownfish Club for painting and bowling while you enjoy 18 holes on Hamilton Island’s world famous course.

4. Mt Hotham Alpine Resort - Victoria

Hotham operates all year round but the real family fun begins when everything is blanketed in white. And what great family holiday list would be complete without a trip to the snow?!
