With the Easter break just around the corner, its the perfect time to finalise or at least start thinking about your Easter holiday plans. To get the ball rolling on your travel planning, we thought we’d take a look at our top five destinations for families this Easter. From the unspoilt shores of Kangaroo Island to the vibrant streets of Sydney, enjoy your Easter egg hunt in an exciting new destination this year.
This Easter break, celebrate the great outdoors with a family weekend away in Cairns. Situated at the tip of Northern Queensland, Cairns is an ideal destination for a tropical getaway. Just a hop, skip and jump and you could be exploring the breathtaking waters of the Great Barrier Reef or swinging through the treetops of the Daintree Rainforest. Kids will love splashing about at the saltwater lagoon on the main esplanade or simply tuck into a sumptuous seafood feast.
Perhaps your little ones are ready for a big city break this April. Take a holiday in our largest city and discover all the gems Sydney has to offer. From meeting the critters at the Taronga Zoo to enjoying a sightseeing cruise along the famous Sydney Harbour. Perhaps the most exciting event will be spending a day at the spectacular Sydney Royal Easter Show, complete with rides, showbags, entertaining live shows and to top it all off, an incredible fireworks display.
Get up close with nature this Easter with a family adventure to the pristine shores of Kangaroo Island. This scenic oasis offers a bounty of family friendly activities with the opportunity for your kids to see the playful seals at Seal Bay or feed a kangaroo at the Wildlife Park. Visit Raptor Domain for fascinating interactive bird shows or even watch a sheep shearing at a local farm. Be sure to take the time to visit Vivonne Bay, often touted for being one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Whether you are picturing a relaxing beach getaway or a holiday of adventure, the Gold Coast is sure to satisfy. Family friendly beaches abound for your little ones to enjoy swimming, surfing or sandcastle making in the warm Queensland sun. On the other hand, you have the famous theme parks at your finger tips and many other exciting attractions including the Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary and the Gold Coast Iceland ice skating rink. Be sure to also enjoy a family picnic in Lamington National Park.
Make the most of the Easter break and venture a little further off shore. Introduce your kids to our friendly neighbour, New Zealand. Hire a car or motorhome and prepare for your own family road trip. Discover the geothermal activity of Rotorua or climb the Sky Tower in Auckland. The country’s capital Wellington will serve you an impressive cup of their finest coffee or head over to Queenstown for exciting adventure activities and perhaps New Zealand’s most picturesque scenery.
