With the kids taking a break from school anytime soon, it might be wise to plan ahead for the school holidays. Get in first, as it were.

Let’s make it easy: here are some awesome family holiday ideas perfect for the kids. This is the place to start for real travel inspiration. Read on!
Awesome Australia Holiday #1: Resort & Fly-Stay Packages
Great value resorts and hotels, with or without flights are easily available at Discover365, with all-inclusive packages for families of all sizes. Queensland invites you to create your own experience with a host of activities in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, or maybe take a deep dive into Tropical North QLD. Visit iconic Sydney or Melbourne for majestic views of the harbour, or stock up your knowledge and learn something new at the world-class cultural centres. For something fun, try WA’s Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, the penguins at VIC Phillip Island, Kakadu National Park in the NT, or go head out on an outback safari top to bottom, across the Nullarbor or discover the spectacular wilderness of the Kimberly. Maybe even consider a Murray River Cruise for the whole family, so that you’ll get that land, air, and sea experience all in one trip!
Awesome Holiday #2: Sun, Sand, and Sea at Fiji
The beach is a hard place to beat when it comes to a family holiday – and Fiji comes in as a no-brainer for its exquisite palm tree framed views, clear blue waters, and that serene island feel. Just pack your bags (don’t forget the sunscreen!), head to your nearest airport (Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Melbourne all fly non-stop to Nadi), and throw down the beach towel in the white sand of your favourite tropical island – Fiji.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, Fiji is the perfect place for underwater exploration as a myriad of coloured reefs and unique marine species await first timers, snorkelers and even seasoned divers.
You can also book your stay at any of Fiji’s resorts for a family-friendly getaway, or maybe even add a Blue Lagoon or Captain Cook cruise to the nearby Mamanucas and Yasawa Islands and enhance your holiday to really embrace that “deserted island” feel and let the kids run wild!
Speaking of cruise…
Awesome Cruise Holiday #3:
Arguably the best, inclusive holiday is a cruise. Cruising allows families to experience multiple destinations without any hassles – even with the kids around, and you unpack only once! Onboard your chosen ship, kids can make new friends at exclusive kids’ clubs, splash about on epic waterslides, and a whole raft of fun activities…– and don’t forget all that glorious food that will fill all of those energetic little bodies!
Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are all home to cruise lines that sail all around the world. If you’re bringing kids along, we recommend an easy cruise to the picturesque South Pacific for its technicolour reefs and lagoons. You can also go for coastal Australia experience and/or New Zealand cruise to “The Land of the Long White Cloud”. Feeling tribal? Head on over to Papua New Guinea to explore one of the newest destinations we have on offer!
Discover365 gives you an easy window to the world, with booking of flights, hotels, cruises, tours and more all waiting for you to call. Do you have somewhere in mind? Explore the Tonga mountainside, tropical Bali, or wanting to take the kids on an adventure to discover the wonders of Asia on a river cruise?
Wherever you decide, our Discover365 Cruise & Travel Solutions Specialists can put a personal family package together to suit your destination, budget, family and all the fun you can handle! Just give us a call at 1300 830 786.
