With the kids taking a break from school very soon, it might be wise to plan ahead for the school holidays. Get in first, and book early is our first advise – everything books out weeks, months sometimes years in advance. Plus, there’s a lot of things you need to consider with a family – from transportation, luggage and accommodation, the food and activities, to the budget and choice of destination all combining to create that perfect family holiday.
Luckily, Megastore has a wealth of kid-friendly, cruise and travel packages that you and the rest of the family can enjoy. The best thing is that you can choose a holiday and spend as much or as little as you want, and still save! Whether it’s a road trip to the beach, a 5-star hotel staycation, a family ski holiday to Japan or a tropical South Pacific cruise, you’re bound to have a memorable family fun time.
Let’s make it easy – here are some awesome family holiday ideas perfect for the kids. This is the place to start for real travel inspiration. Read on!
Awesome School Holiday #1:
Australian Resort & Fly-Stay Packages
Great value resorts and hotels, with or without flights are easily available at Megastore, with all-inclusive packages for families of all sizes. Queensland invites you to create your own experience with a host of activities in Brisbane, the Gold Coast, or maybe take a deep dive into Tropical North QLD. Visit iconic Sydney or Melbourne for majestic views of the harbour, or stock up your knowledge and learn something new at the world-class cultural centres. For something fun, try WA’s Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, the penguins at VIC Phillip Island, Kakadu National Park in the NT, or go head out on an outback safari top to bottom, across the Nullarbor or discover the spectacular wilderness of the Kimberly.
Maybe even consider a Murray River Cruise for the whole family, so that you’ll get that land, air, and sea experience all in one trip!
Awesome School Holiday #2:
Sun, Sand, and Sea at Fiji
The beach is a hard place to beat when it comes to a family holiday – and Fiji comes in as a no-brainer for its exquisite palm tree framed views, clear blue waters, and that serene island feel. Just pack your bags (don’t forget the sunscreen!), head to your nearest airport (Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide, and Melbourne all fly non-stop to Nadi), and throw down the beach towel in the white sand of a your favourite tropical island – Fiji.
If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, Fiji is the perfect place for underwater exploration as a myriad of coloured reefs and unique marine species await first timers, snorkelers and even seasoned divers.
You can also book your stay at any of Fiji’s resorts for a family-friendly getaways, or maybe even add a Blue Lagoon or Captain Cook cruise to the nearby Mamanuca’s and Yasawa Islands and enhance your holiday to really embrace that “desert island” feel.
Speaking of cruising…
Awesome School Holiday #3:
Cruising the World … or at least the South Pacific!
Arguably the best, inclusive holiday for a family is a cruise. Cruising gives you the option to experience one, two or more destinations without any hassles – even with the kids around… plus you unpack only once! Onboard your chosen family-friendly ship, kids can make new friends at exclusive kids’ clubs, splash about on epic waterslides, and a whole raft of fun activities…– and don’t forget all that glorious food to fill all of those energetic little bodies!
Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne are all home to cruiselines that sail all around the world. If you’re bringing kids along, we would recommend an easy taste-tester cruise of a few nights or a 7-14 day cruise to the picturesque South Pacific for its island charm, technicolour reefs and palm-fringed lagoons. You could also go for a coastal Australia experience and/or a New Zealand cruise to the “Land of the Long White Cloud”. Is your family feeling tribal? Head on over to Papua New Guinea to explore one of the newest destinations we have on offer!
