Our favourite family holiday destinations

  • Fiji: Fiji is a natural playground for kids. There are soft beaches to play on, bathwater-warm seas to swim in, and storybook-style adventures to experience like rafting and cave visits.
  • Bali: This island is home to one of Asia’s top water parks, there’s a Pirates’ Bay with a pirate boat to conquer, and animal sanctuaries all over the island where kids can get within a tusk’s width of an elephant or a tail’s distance of a monkey.
  • Hawaii: Horseback riding, zip-lining and snorkelling are just a few of the things families can do in Hawaii. After dark, there are colourful family-friendly luaus to attend, too.
  • Thailand: Thailand is a kaleidoscope of a country. Families can visit gilded temples, explore bat caves, go beachcombing and picnic on Robinson Crusoe beaches.
  • Gold Coast: The Gold Coast bends over backward for families. Broods can kayak, visit glow-worm caves, go rock pooling and build sandcastles on 70 kilometres of coastline. And don’t get us started on the theme parks!

What to consider when booking a family holiday

Accommodation can make the difference between a family holiday that’s good and one that’s great. Parents who want some time to themselves on a trip should look for resorts that offer babysitting services or crèches, especially in the evenings.

If you’re not planning on venturing too far from your hotel, take a look at some of the family-friendly resorts that have big pools, splash pads and other kids activities.

Food is another thing to consider when deciding where to go on your family holiday. If you’re on a budget, it’s a good idea to find a place to stay that has a produce market and picnic spots nearby for DIY dinners. Some hotels offer special deals and discounts for kids when dining with their parents, which can be a real lifesaver if you’re travelling on a budget.
