Australians’ Favourite Family Holiday Destinations

With the mid-year school holidays fast approaching, holiday website has revealed the favourite family holiday spots, as voted by Aussies.

“Thousands of Aussies trust Wotif with their travel every day, and we love to share their insights into the destinations families voted as the best location for family holidays,” Ms La Bruniy said.

“The places families choose to stay at are a great starting point when looking into your next family getaway, so to make it easier for families we’ve put together the most popular Wotif family accommodation options, in the top three locations Aussies voted as their favourite family holiday destination.”

Below are the most popular places where families stay at on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast and in Fiji…

“Fiji is an all round crowd pleaser when it comes to family travel, with the temperature rarely dropping below 20 degrees, and many resorts catering for the whole family. The Radisson Blue Resort is the most popular accommodation choice on Wotif for family travel in Fiji at the moment.”

“If you’re planning a family trip to Fiji or flying to your holiday destination, a top savings tip is to bundle airfares and accommodation with a package. By combining flights and a hotel of your choice with a Wotif holiday package, families will get access to great deals not available when booking separately as hotels and airlines have more flexibility on the price offered.”
