Going away on holiday each year is an exciting time for many Australian families. While some choose to visit a ‘traditional’ destination, others like to explore the corners of the world on a well-deserved break from school and work.

However, it can be difficult for parents to afford a holiday for themselves, as well as the kids airfares and accommodation. That’s where a holiday package comes in handy – for one price, you get your flights, hotel, and holiday sorted, without skimping on destination or comfort.

Here are just a few of the family-friendly holiday packages available to make your holiday planning that little bit easier. Not to mention, they’re super affordable – each of these is $1,000 or less per person!


Fiji is a popular holiday destination for many reasons. It’s got the beaches, water sports, and plenty of snorkelling and other island activities to suit everyone in the family. A Fiji holiday package including flights and six nights accommodation could cost you as little as $615 per person – meaning you’ll have enough left over to spoil yourself while you’re there!


This island destination is a perfect getaway for the whole family. With activities such as markets and fishing, as well as spectacular scenery including rainforests, beaches and waterfalls, there’s something to keep everyone happy. Plus, it could cost you from just $974 per person for a six night holiday package on this island paradise.


There’s just something about this stunning New Zealand destination. Known for its adventure activities and gorgeous scenery, you’ll be spoilt for choice with what to spend your time doing – whether it’s a bungy jump or enjoying a scenic day on the lakefront of Lake Wakatipu. It’s also an affordable retreat, and could cost from $780 per person for seven luxurious Queenstown nights.

Gold Coast

If a long weekend away on our very own Gold Coast sounds perfect to the whole family, a Gold Coast getaway could be just what you need. Three nights in the Gold Coast could cost you from just over $300 per person, making it the most affordable getaway on our list – in fact, an entire family of three could potentially pay under $1,000 for the lot!
