Have a Question about your plans to Travel Australia With Kids?

Ask away!  There are no silly questions, if you are thinking it, then someone else is or has thought about it too.  So let's all help each other and ask what everyone else is thinking!   

Now this is new, so if you are an experienced TAWKer, do check back often as there's also a chance for you to have a look at a question and give your thoughts too. I really want the site to be interactive and so your contribution is much appreciated. 

We all have questions about the trip, what's yours?

Your question might also help others in the future, so please ask away...
