You could all set sail and embark on a whale watching cruise in the Gippsland region of Port Welshpool, Victoria. This spectacular six-hour cruise offers the rare chance to view humpback whales, seals, dolphins and other magnificent marine life in their natural habitat. In addition to informative wildlife commentary and a video presentation, every guest on board will be treated to morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. There’s also a licensed bar on board for the grown-ups.

RedBalloon offers a wide range of water-based activities in all capital cities, as well as high tea and lunch cruises on the Yarra River, Swan River and Brisbane rivers. For families with the most refined tastes, the seafood buffet lunch cruise on Sydney Harbour is a crowd pleaser.

Alternatively, your brood could enjoy a scenic harbour cruise with admission to Taronga Zoo. This exciting package encompasses the best of both worlds on land and sea. Get up close and personal with over 4000 animals and 350 species and learn about some of Australia’s most rare and dangerous creatures. 

If you’ve got some time on your hands, why not surprise the kids and head to Australia’s theme park mecca on the Gold Coast? With a seven day unlimited Super Pass you’ll be granted entry to Warner Bros. Movie World, Sea World and Wet’n’Wild. Here you can enjoy a plethora of rides, shows and attractions to suit every family member. If a more relaxed pace is in keeping with your crew’s movements, you could book horse riding on St Andrews Beach. Soak up the pristine coastal surrounds on this professionally guided tour, while also making new equine pals – no prior experience is required.

If you’re looking for a bucket list-worthy experience to knock your family’s socks off, look no further than the Roar 'n' Snore at Melbourne Zoo. You’ll not only get to experience this magical wildlife setting after dark, watch nocturnal creatures begin their day and camp in the historic elephant exhibit, but you’ll also be treated to a gourmet dinner, supper and breakfast.
