Australia is a true paradise for families in search of adventure: kangaroos, koalas, and other strange animals will surprise the youngest, while the tweens will prefer surfing, diving, or the outback, which is a bit reminiscent of the Wild West. Without a doubt, a destination to take into account for those who want to play at becoming great explorers.
Australia allows you to enjoy nature in a big way, with unique dimensions that make each of the outdoor activities a unique and unforgettable adventure.
- Kings Canyon (Watarrka National Park, Northern Territory), an impressive rift in the heart of the Red Desert.
- Gold Coast (Queensland) and Surfers Paradise, where the little ones will learn to surf and admire the skills of more competent surfers.
- The outback, the Australian outback, a barren landscape with ghost towns worthy of a western movie.
The land of kangaroos
Younger animal lovers will have the opportunity to get up close and personal with a host of animals that are rarely seen in the rest of the world.
- Petting koalas in the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary near Brisbane.
See sharks, whales off the south shore.

How expensive is it to Travel to Australia?
Traveling in Australia usually costs more than you think. It is more expensive than North America, but not as expensive as Western Europe. Getting there is the first big outlay and traveling the second. Internal flights are especially expensive, as there is little competition. And then there is the strong Australian dollar. Accommodation and food are expensive, although they are of high standards. Fuel is more expensive away from the coast, which is more populated. Packages that combine transport, hotels and circuits can represent savings. With a mild climate and splendid nature, camping is a great option to cut costs.
