Where should I go on family holiday in Australia
Aren’t we lucky to live in the world’s greatest country, that offers plenty of opportunities for amazing holiday in your own backyard wherever you are! So why not wonder out yonder or even have a staycation and see what you can discover! You could be pleasantly surprised.
So where should you go? I have teenagers at home, and I know they can be hard to entertain! As much as they can be glued to their phones and craving room service, they are open and enjoy less luxurious holidays just as much, if not even more so at times.
In Western Australia, Rottnest Island can provide a nice break. It’s kind of rustic and fun at the same time. It’s a place to switch off and reconnect with one another. If you are lucky enough to be in Queensland, head to Hamilton Island. Complete opposite to Rottnest! This place is an island resort. Perfect to laze by the pool, enjoy room service, watch amazing tropical sunsetstake a ride on a go-kart and more. For a tiny island, plenty to do!
In the NT, base yourself in Darwin and take some drives to the waterholes. Rent a car to visit the likes of Berry Springs, Wangi Falls, Florence falls and go have the famous burger at Adelaide River. Whilst South Australia offers up hidden spots like Normanville, a place where you’d least expect all the options available. Whether you have the taste for a resort or a holiday park, Normanville has it all.
How about stepping back in time in Sovereign Hill, Ballarat Victoria? This amazing place is set up like a goldrush town, you can stay in one of the cottages, and enjoy the day walking through the town, seeing how things were made in the ‘old days’ and may be even enjoy the Eureka Stockade re-enactment.
If you can venture further south to Tasmania, go on a self-drive tour and eat your way through the region – the produce here converts even the fussiest of eaters! – whilst also gives you mysterious ghost stories.
