Australia with your family

Close your eyes and picture your perfect family holiday to Australia. Are the kids hand-feeding kangaroos? Learning to surf at Bondi Beach? Enjoying an adventure in the Red Centre? Then stop dreaming - with TravelEssence all of this is possible.

Thanks to our in-depth knowledge and local expertise, we have what it takes to make your dream family getaway a reality, and we do it by providing you with a perfectly tailored holiday, custom-made just for you.

We focus on what truly matters - a stress-free, family-friendly holiday full of exciting experiences and lifelong memories your family will cherish forever.

Picture your family exploring the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef, snorkelling amidst vibrant marine life, and enjoying unforgettable animal encounters. Imagine wandering through the ancient Daintree Rainforest, discovering its secrets, with the little ones by your side.

Stay in a tree house in the heart of the forest where your only neighbours are the native birds, or a 'swag' in the Red Centre so you can learn all about Australia's indigenous people's culture and history.

With TravelEssence, every moment of your journey is crafted with care so you can experience Australia’s uniqueness together - worry-free.

How long do we need in Australia?

Being one of the world's biggest countries, you could easily spend months travelling the ever-changing landscape and not see the same place twice. So the real question is: “How long do we have?”

Your time is precious, and your priority is the little ones. And that is exactly why a holiday, 'the TravelEssence way', is perfect for you and your family.
