Last minute family getaways

written by Webjet Australia January 28, 2014

Packing your family up on a fun getaway is a great way to beat holiday boredom and enjoy some much-deserved leisure time in one hit.

If you’re looking for a stress-free holiday for the whole family, try one of these options. The best part is they can all be planned with very little notice and effort!

Surfer’s Paradise, Gold Coast

After flying to the Gold Coast, you’ll find an abundance of family-friendly hotels, thrilling theme parks and gorgeous white sand beaches. Both kids and adults will find it hard to fit in all the entertainment you want to see while you’re there!

Spend a day discovering wildlife at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary, then head out to one of Cavill Avenue’s many restaurants. The Gold Coast is great fun and you won’t even have to cross an ocean to get to this action-packed destination – it’s truly convenient.

Christchurch, New Zealand

Flying to Christchurch takes just over three hours from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane, so it’s a holiday that’s close to home but will feel worlds away.

Take in glorious panoramic views on the Christchurch Gondola, see kiwis up close and personal at Orana Wildlife Park, admire the Christchurch Botanical Gardens, or get lost in the ‘Maize Maze’.

Hobart, Tasmania

For a quick trip that feels a little less ‘touristy’, pile the kids on a flight to charming Hobart, Tasmania’s capital. Pay a visit to the iconic Salamanca Place’s warehouses. These once housed goods such as whale oil and wool, but have since been transformed into galleries, theatres and delicious eateries.

Make sure you don’t leave without spotting the famous Tasmanian Devil. Take a half-hour’s drive out to Brighton’s Bonorong Wildlife Park and see them up close and personal.

For more exciting holiday ideas, look out for family holiday packages to a location your family is sure to love.
