If you are bond with nature, then you will find Australia has so much to offer that you simply can’t resist, in fact you will be spoilt for choice! Whether it’s Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Sydney or Darwin, you and the kids will love the large variety of attractions there.
You will be amazed to know that with its vast open lands and friendly climate, Australia teems with animal life, both marine and on land. Your kids definitely would love getting up close with kangaroos, wallabies, koalas and wombats at any of the state zoos. As for older kids, they can try more hardy adventures such as swimming with seals at Mooloolaba’s Underwater World in Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, riding a camel at Perth’s Calamunnda Camel Farm or playing zookeeper at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo. As for your little ones, they can run, play and soak for free as Australia is also famous for its great open parks! For example, these include the Western Power Playground in Perth and South Bank Parklands in Brisbane.
For families with teenagers, I suggest them to head to Queensland’s Gold Coast, where there are theme parks galore such as Dreamworld, Warner Bros Movie World, Whitewater World and Wet ‘n’ Wild.
