Australia, a magical world of its own and a fantastic destination for family holidays, offering bustling cities, stunning beaches, tropical rainforests and not forgetting the awesome Great Barrier Reef. Australia is so vast and diverse that to explore it properly takes time and for most family holidays we’d suggest focusing on one area. A popular family itinerary would start in Sydney giving time to surf, shop and experience this vibrant cosmopolitan city, maybe extending to the Blue Mountains for a couple of days. From here take a flight to Cairns, where the Reef awaits and the Daintree Rainforest beckons to be explored. For the last leg of this family holiday fly to Brisbane visit the zoo or explore the Hinterlands before relaxing for your last few days at one of the glorious beach spots along the Gold Coast of Australia.

California has all the ingredients for a Luxury Family Holiday, offering an intoxicating mix of culture, nature, attractions and glorious beaches. We would highly recommend a tour of California; starting in San Francisco, take a trip to Alcatraz, cycle the Golden Gate Bridge or just indulge in the fine shops and eateries downtown, before heading off for a complete contrast and a few days taking in the natural wonders of Yosemite National Park . From here drive along the Big Sur coastal highway 1, stop in Carmel and Monterey to surf , golf or watch the seals, before continuing via the beaches of Santa Barbara on to L.A. If time permits, an extension to Las Vegas is always a great way to round off this fantastic family holiday to California.
