Your Must-Do Itinerary for a Family Trip to Australia

Thanks to a total land area of more than 7.6 million square kilometres, planning an Australian road trip will provide you with a nearly limitless number of possibilities when it comes to holiday experiences! It can still be somewhat difficult to appreciate some of the best spots to visit. In order to organise the perfect family trip in your own backyard, Accor Vacation Club has put together a quick list of some locations that should never be missed along the way. There are long distances between destinations, with lots to do in between, so be sure plan enough time (and petrol!). Let's take a closer look.

The Sunshine Coast

The Sunshine Coast is known for its privacy as well as for an immediate access to untarnished examples of natural beauty. The Glass House Mountains, Noosa National Park and Australia Zoo are three examples of what you can expect to encounter. If you would like to enjoy the spacious flexibility offered by self-contained beach houses, look no further than Twin Waters Sunshine Coast. After all, any family trip to Australia should always be defined by comfort and convenience.

The Gold Coast

There is no doubt that The Gold Coast is one of the most popular regions within Australia, and for good reason. Thanks to its pristine sandy beaches, adrenalin pumping theme parks, world renowned surf breaks and its amenable year-round climate, a family vacation to Australia including this eastern location is certain to provide lasting memories. Accor is pleased to work in conjunction with Mercure Gold Coast Resort in order to provide you with truly luxurious accommodations during your stay.


What would a family vacation to Australia represent without visiting Sydney? This iconic city has come to define modernity and with attractions such as the Sydney Opera House as well as Darling Harbour, there is certainly no lack of family-friendly excursions to enjoy. In order to further accentuate your stay, consider the very exclusive The Sebel Darling Harbour, The Pinnacle. For those wanting to stay on the other side of Sydney Harbour, The Sebel Sydney Manly Beach hotel is a worthwhile option to consider. Not only is it nestled upon one of the most popular Australian coastlines, but immediate access to boutique shops and restaurants are additional amenities.


It is an undeniable fact that Australia is partially defined by its sense of unrivalled natural allure. However, there are also times when a family holiday needs to incorporate urban delights. Melbourne is therefore an ideal destination to consider. From the scintillating lights of Queen Victoria Market to the panoramic observation deck of Eureka Tower, there is indeed something here for travellers of all ages. Found within the centre of the famous entertainment district, The Sebel Melbourne Flinders Lane will provide you with all of the comforts that you have come to expect from Accor. As it is also quite close to the majority of Melbourne attractions, even those who are new to the city will be able to absorb all of its majesty. 
Accor Vacation Club always seeks to provide you with the most relevant and up-to-date holiday information. Feel free to refer back to this article when planning your next family getaway.
