To plan the perfect getaway for your toddler (and you, of course!), ask yourself these six important questions when choosing your destination.
If travelling by car, is it far away?
Little ones don’t want to spend a big chunk of a holiday in the backseat of the car.
Does it have facilities to entertain kids?
From a dedicated kids’ club to even a small playground, it’s good to know your tot will be entertained.
Are there dining options that are kid-friendly?
If the only restaurant is a five-star establishment, then it’s probably not the best place to take a tired toddler night after night.
Are there plenty of attractions to check out nearby?
It could be zoos, museums, adventure parks… whatever the family is interested in.
Is it pet-friendly?
Your littlie may not feel it’s a true ‘family’ holiday without her favourite furry family member.
Will it cost a bomb?
Kids can have a wonderful holiday at budget locations. You don’t need to spend a fortune to have a good time.
Plus, there’s nothing to make your holiday hangover worse than a huge credit card debt!
For a cost-friendly option, check out holiday parks like BIG4. Whether you’re looking for a place to stay in the city, a seaside escape or a country retreat, there are heaps of spots across the country, so you’re sure to find something that fits the bill.
We reckon the BIG4 Forster Tuncurry Great Lakes Holiday Park in NSW is a perfect getaway for families.
