After seeing @MummyTravels inspiring travel posts, I was motivated to also join the #AtoZtravelchallenge and hopefully give you some ideas of where to take your kids one day!
🐨So A is for Australia! 🐨
It’s where my husband is from and a place I have travelled to many times as a flight attendant and have yet to scratch the surface.
Melbourne and Sydney are the places I’ve visited the most but Adelaide is where a lot of family are from and the WhitSundays is where we spent time for an incredible family wedding.
So I’ve jotted a few notes for each place for you.
🐨 Did you know you can only cuddle a koala in three states: Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.
Adelaide in South Australia: It’s a charming, quiet city with great parks and museums and family friendly vineyards for kids and a drive out to @Cleland is well worth it to see all the animals- many roaming around amongst you including kangaroos and wallabies with their Joey’s.
🐨 And yes you can cuddle a koala. Drive down to Victor Harbour and stay at the beach. Don’t forget a visit to Granite Island to see the resident penguins!
☕️ Melbourne in Victoria:
🍼 Little ones can sip a babycino at the Farm Cafe at the Collingwood Children’s Farm
🦒 Kids can go on safari at Werribee Open Range Zoo, hop on a 40 minute 4WD bus journey through the African grasslands.
Melbourne’s Federation Square offers free family events or paid organised activities for families year round: From a pop up pools, roof top famers gardens, ice rinks and live sports events, there’s always something on & worth a look around.
Sydney in NSW:
⚓️ Take a Ferry to Manly or Watson’s Bay for fish & chips or a Whale Watching Cruise. Enjoy a park set to engage your five senses with nature at Centennial Park Wild Play Garden.
🎠The free Darling Quarter Playground is often recommended by locals & for good reason. It is renowned as one of the best in the country & don’t forget the incredible beaches!
🏝 Whitsundays in Queensland:
Nothing prepares you for their beauty. Kids will love the powdery white sand, the turquoise blue of the sea, whales & fish 🐳. #visitaustralia
