  • Party With The Animals:  What family doesn’t love the zoo?  Don’t forget to add sleeping over at the zoo to your family’s experience list! Fall asleep to the sounds of the world’s animals on your doorsteps and wake up to feed them breakfast!  An experience no family will forget!
  • Get Back To Nature:  Is a nature adventure more your style?  Organise a guided hike or camp out in some of our beautiful National Parks and give an experience that your kids will never forget!

  • When my kids were little we always created wonderful memories from each time we had a trip away. We often talk about some of our travels.


  • it doesn’t matter where you go as long as you are together and happy. memories cost nothing but time


  • Thank you for the ideas. It is so true that they grow up too quickly. I’ve always wanted to go to Disneyland, what a magical place it would be.


  • What great ideas for a vacation!


  • We’d love to go to the Dubbo Zoo and stay overnight – would be a grand adventure!


  • Great list if you’re lucky enough to have oodles of money. The memories I made with my family were camping trips in the backyard, fishing in the local creek, building cubby houses, bike riding, trips to the park, camping in the lounge room on wintery nights and having DVD marathons. I know we all enjoyed this time together, even tho we didn’t spend lots of money


  • Love this list ! Except for one big trip to different countries in Europe we didn’t take our kids on holiday yet. Maybe one day when money is rolling :)


  • always wanted to take my children to disneyland. it is definitely on the list. Have done a few of these on th elist…a few more to go :)


  • Was lucky enough to give my children their first plane ride to Cairns for a 2 week stay, and saw Barrier Reef, Green Island, Lizard Island, the Atherton Tablelands, Kurunda, etc. It was a magical holiday and fortunately at 16, 12,10 & 8 they still remember it and talk about it many years later.
    This list is a good one, most of which we have ticked off.


  • Love this list! Would love to cross them off the ‘to do’ list.


  • Disneyland is the top of my kid’s wish list but I think we will do some closer to home travel first.


  • Oh yes ! I would love to travel Australia, rent a snow-lodge and a beach house, travel Europe and Africa…but I’m afraid our salary isn’t sufficient !

    • Same here. You might have also done my above list of life memories? I sometimes think article writers forget about those of us who don’t have unlimited funds for overseas trips etc. I know I still had a ball with my kids


  • What a great list. My little ones are still very little but I look forward to when they are a bit bigger and when we can have some amazing family adventures that I hope they will cherish.


  • Another great experience is a farm stay. Feeding animals and seeing farm machinery.


  • This is a great list. We go camping fairly regularly and the kids love it. I really want to take them to the snow but have to convince Hubby who’s not too keen. I looked up a zoo sleepover but they are quite expensive. We’d also love to do the family cruise when they’re a bit older and possibly Disneyland. Hubby and I have done both those but they would be magical for the kids.
