It’s never been easier to travel with children. Whether you book a fly and flop holiday in the Pacific, go skiing in Europe or take them to a theme park on the Gold Coast. But how about an adventure they will still be talking about 20 years from now? A unique holiday experience that will change the way they look at the world – and you?
At The Tailor we have a portfolio of amazing Australian trips that are ideal for kids of all ages – everything from snorkeling on the Great Barrier Reef to hiking in the Tasmania wilderness and crocodile spotting in the Top End. Apart from being superbly organized and great fun, these experiences also showcase some of Australia’s most amazing landscapes, offering astonishing wildlife encounters and, often, a chance to learn about Aboriginal culture. While some of these holidays, such as bushwalking in Tasmania and diving on the Great Barrier Reef, are naturally better suited to teenagers, most of the suggestions below can be enjoyed by kids of all ages, even those glued to their handheld device. First-time visitors to Australia may imagine that our adventure-based holidays are all located in remote, hard-to-reach places. Not true. In Sydney, for example, your kids to learn to surf on Bondi Beach, Australia’s most famous stretch of sand, or drive a short distance to Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, a fantastic base for horse-riding, mountain biking, wildlife spotting and other activities near the Blue Mountains National Park.
As parents keeping our children safe is our ultimate concern, especially when taking them to a new country. At the same time we want to expand their horizons and introduce them to new places, flavours and cultural experiences. That’s why Australia is such a great holiday destination for families – few other places offer the same combination of outdoor activities, modern infrastructure, safety protocols and high quality guiding. Here are just some ideas for your next family holiday Down Under – from the city to the Outback and everything in-between. Don’t hold back.
