Mark's verdict:

What kids wouldn't want a holiday Down Under? Australia is packed with goodies, from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast, the rainforest to the Great Barrier Reef. But this is a huge country and you can't do it all. Should you aim for all the big sights, or do one region in depth? Time to consult an expert.

Australian Sky says

If you’re thinking about a family holiday in Australia, you have come to the right company.

  • motorhome holidays
  • trip of a lifetime
  • wildlife encounters

You could spend a lifetime of holidays in Australia and still find there’s more to be discovered – it’s as diverse as it is vast so it’s vital that we nail exactly what sort of experience you’re looking for and how much time you want to spend travelling once you’re there. Our expert, well-travelled consultants will put together a seamless holiday of a lifetime to match your budget and everyone’s interests.

Our most popular family option is the Grand West self-drive tour, a knock-out 18-night trip in Queensland to suit all ages. In this one amazing holiday from Perth to Darwin, you will be able to marvel at stunning national parks, including Kakadu and Kalbarri, experience close encounters with the dolphins at Monkey Mia, snorkel on Ningaloo Reef and see the incredible Bungle Bungles.

Of course, most of our Australia holidays can be tailored to suit families – you can see our full range of Australia holiday ideas here.

If you enjoy the freedom of the road, our fly-drive and motorhome holidays are a great choice. For example, you can head to Queensland and discover the Gold Coast and Great Barrier Reef, explore from Sydney to Cairns with time in the Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley and Gold Coast or hit the iconic Great Ocean Road in South Australia.

Whichever holiday you go for, our consultants can also pre-book special experiences for you – climbing Sydney Harbour Bridge, a night at Ayers Rock or even an overnight stay at Taronga Zoo.

We work with all the major airlines and our experts can secure the best prices and the most convenient routes, and help you choose the best stopovers from the theme parks of Los Angeles to the mystique of Hong Kong or Bangkok.
