There is nothing like travelling through your own backyard with the kids. Going on that camping trip that your parents took you on, rolling out the swag and pitching the tent at some of the most incredible campsites around Australia.
A short trip over to New Zealand opens up as easy a country to travel through as if you were still home but throw in the extra mystique of the picturesque South Island plus the adventure capital Queenstown or even the volcanic North Island, simply put a trip to New Zealand is incredible. Probably a better destination for the older kids as they can certianly get thier feet wet and try some weird and wonderful adventure sports or even Ski on some of the best snow in the Southern Hemisphere. Under water caving in the North Island or a trip out to the Whales and Dolphins caps off what is a country best described as "gods play ground".
Fiji, Vanuatu or in fact any South Pacific Island is a fantastic way to head overseas with your family without any of the stresses of Asia. A relaxing holiday at the beach with a tot of any age is bliss to any parents ear. The South Pacific offers romance, excitement, water sports, relaxing time and time to recoup, plus book your holiday wisely at a resort with a good reputable kids club and your family holiday can become much more manageable.
