How long do I need in Australia?

It is absolutely impossible to see all of Australia at once. How long you and your family should spend in Australia, depends on how long you have. Therefore, you will need to decide which places you want to visit. Which time of the year would you like to go? What things would you like to do? We can help you to decide all of these important things.

What can I see and do?

Australia is a family-friendly destination with plenty of outdoor activities. Some things are as simple as watching the sunset over the Great Dividing Range to counting shooting stars. We have personally selected extraordinary local experiences in nature, for families.
