Luxury Australasia Family
Tours made for you
Discover this unique corner of the world on a bespoke luxury family vacation to Australasia
Australasia, a region within Oceania, is easily one of the world’s best destinations for a truly memorable family getaway. Whether travelling with your kids or on a multigenerational trip, at Jacada Travel we work with you to ensure you have a holiday that is distinctive, authentic and memorable for every member of your family.
There are few experiences like the moment you spot a whale shark snorkelling on a remote marine reserve in Australia, or searching for Nemo on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, connecting with the world’s oldest living culture through their art and dance or heading into the vast outback to discover some of Australia’s best wildlife. The bustling Australian cities are also teeming with family-friendly adventures: dine in one of the restaurants at Sydney’s harbour, or explore Melbourne’s vibrant streets through a relaxing bike ride.
Head beyond Australia to New Zealand, where a hotbed of activities and adventures await you and your family. Dress as a hobbit from Lord of the Rings and visit the real Hobbiton, discover rural life on a working farm and feed baby animals, speed down the Shotover river in Queenstown on a jetboat and try a traditional Maori feast cooked in the steaming ground in Rotorua.
If it’s ancient beliefs and traditional ceremonies you’re after, Papua New Guinea is teeming with over 800 local languages and a unique culture for you to explore with your family. See how tribal traditions are kept alive in many of the smaller villages and The Highlands, and witness the celebrations explode with music and dance.
Whether you are looking for a slow-paced family getaway or an action-packed adventure, Australasia delivers it all. Connect with your family through shared discoveries in this untouched region of the world where we will ensure every detail is carefully crafted for a family trip of a lifetime.
