5 Reasons to Take Your Family to Australia this Year

Trying to think of the next perfect holiday destination this year or next? How about traveling with your family this time around? I would suggest the best way of making the proper decision here is to consider what everyone wants - your parents/siblings/kids - for the trip to be worthwhile for the whole family. There are a lot of things you are going to have to consider, but after much thought and research, it is clear to me that Australia is one of the best travel destinations in the world for families seeking adventure, discovery, and opportunity.

Statistics show that international tourists visiting Australia totalled more than 9 million this year, and this illustrates just how popular it is down under. It doesn’t surprise me to discover that Australia is one of the most popular countries with tourists because of the sheer number of amazing things there are to do here. Below are 5 of my top reasons why I think you should take your family on an adventure in Australia this year (or in 2019!).

1. The Culture Goes Deeper Than You Think
Suspend your ideas about what you think you know regarding Oz, as their culture is much deeper and more intriguing than you might have thought. Venturing into different states and regions is like drifting into another country entirely. I definitely recommend checking out the Great Barrier Reef, Ayers Rock, The Outback, and Bondi Beach - and those are just for starters!

2. There’s No Language Barrier
One of the biggest worries many people have when they go on holiday is that they won’t be able to communicate clearly, and the language barrier will hinder potential enjoyment and safety. The great thing about Australia is that they speak the universal language (English), and that means it is much easier in keeping your daily travels and your family safe. Statistics show that 1 in 6 travelers had to make a claim in 2016, and something like this is going to be significantly easier in Australia because there won't be any issue with the language.

3. It’s Kiddie-Friendly
I bet you didn’t know that Lonely Planet recently ranked South Australia as the world’s 5th best region to live in! One of the main reasons for this has to do with the fact that it is super kiddie-friendly. If you are taking a family holiday, you want to be going somewhere that is family-oriented. South Australia has some stunning beaches, wonderful parks and play areas, and plenty of great festivals and food. Check out Adelaide while you’re there, you won’t regret it!

4. The Weather is Perfect!
There are some remarkable things to love about Australia, and one thing you simply can’t beat is the weather. I love to go abroad and experience new climates and weathers, and Australia will definitely not disappoint. They have all four seasons - something we do not have here in the Philippines. If you want to experience winter but your family cannot take a vacation leave during the -ber season, then visit Australia in the months of June to August!

5. Stunning Nature and Wildlife
When visiting a place with as much natural beauty as Australia, it pays to take the time to soak it all in. Last year I toured most of the notable spots in New York City just for 1 day, and it was fun! But when you're in Australia, 1 day certainly won't be enough. There is simply too much to take in, and you wouldn't want to miss out on any of it, right? Indulge in a bush tour, a tour of the Outback, or take the family on a trip to Kangaroo Island...and so much more!

It is a place filled with friendly people, magnificent culture, and no language barriers to worry about.
