Welcome to Travelling Australia With Kids!

Travelling Australia With Kids is the site you need! It was the site I was looking for when we first started out!

  • We have everything here from the TAWK Guide to Travelling Australia With Kids, budgeting help and a spreadsheet to track your finances whilst travelling, handy for all, not just for families!
  • Places to share your ideas if you are already Travelling Australia With Kids (TAWKing!)
  • You'll be able to find out the information you need to get started, mostly from experienced TAWKers.
  • Visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to get the answers given by TAWKers to FAQ.
  • Read about other families that are out there and already TAWKing via our Featured Families Page, where TAWKers share their experiences and answer our TAWK Ten Questions.
  • And 'TAWK' to other TAWKers on our Facebook Page.

Are you Travelling Australia With Kids Yet??

I'd like it to be an interactive experience and one that you can get help and also help others.  We are only just starting out and there is so much more to come. So please, if you already are travelling or are wishing to start Travelling Australia With Kids, become a 'TAWKer' and join in!

If you are not already on the road whilst reading this, looking around the site will hopefully whet your appetite and launch you into your journey.

The "Now You're TAWKing" newsletter is a great way to keep in touch with everything - so please sign up on the right, to get all the news for families travelling with children and camping with kids.  I'm hoping to organise some special offers for TAWKers too!

The site is intended to have a real interaction experience, and we encourage you to share your story and help other families as well as ask questions and find out information from other travelling families.  Almost every page has (or soon will have) an opportunity for you to join in.  I call families that Travel Australia With Kids; TAWKers - I love the way the acronym sounds like 'talk' and here, we can 'TAWK' about it!


What stage of the journey are you at right now?

The Thinking about it stage? 

You're thinking about how to travel Australia with kids and you're researching?  Great!  You've made the first step.  Click around the site as there is lots of information that you will need and find helpful at this early stage.  The page about homeschooling will probably be of most interest to you.

The Planning stage?

Even better - you have made your decision and now you can utilise the site and make your plans. The most exciting part! The information on the site is different from other sites as it is specific to travelling with children. You should first visit our Planning Page.

Already Travelling stage?

Fantastic! You'll be able to find other child friendly places to stay and hopefully impart some of your knowledge with others that are still finding out all the information needed to travel Australia with their kids. Please tell us about YOU and why  you made your decision to Travel Australia With Kids.

We are only just beginning to build the site, therefore we encourage you to bookmark it, have a look round at the information so far and then return often.

Travel Australia With Kids was born when I was about to embark on our travels and I could not find much information that was relevant to our situation.  There are many travel sites, but not specific to the challenges and joys of travelling with children.  From the homeschooling curriculum, family friendly places to stay, great camping recipes, your camping checklist, I could not find much 'real' information.  You know... without all the commercial bias!

There is also the Travel Australia With Kids Facebook page, which I encourage you to 'like' as there's a real community out there, that can give you feedback for any thoughts or questions you may be facing.
