BLOG | Part of our Innovative Itineraries series, this itinerary was created by Senior Travel Designer Kylie Damen. Invigorate your child within, and get hands-on with a range of immersive and educational adventures while traversing the highlights of Australia’s East Coast.
For the casual observer it would appear luxury may not be for the little ones, being far more appropriate for, say, a discerning couple, but this is not necessarily the case.
Families make up a significant portion of our clients, and with the ability to create a handcrafted journey for each individual family, children are not dragged along kicking and screaming to experiences suited to grown-ups. Luxury travel means that offerings are handcrafted and created to suit the family perfectly; their interests, ages of children, pace in which they like to travel and even a few little (or sometimes not so little) surprises thrown in along the way.
Consider a private surf lesson with Layne Beachley, 7 times world champion surfer at an iconic Sydney beach – This is perfect for the luxe family. It is undeniably a luxury experience with privileged access to an iconic personality, but is also a fantastic experience for the whole family. Even Lizard Island, one of the most highly regarded resorts in Australia welcomes children 10 and up. The activities of Lizard Island focussing on the Great Barrier Reef and aquatic adventures, are fitting for the whole family.
Of course it warrants mentioning that many high-end lodges and certain indulgent tours have restrictions on child ages, but there are still many options suitable for the whole family. Check out our Ultimate Oz for Kids for some inspiration.
