Spring and summer travel is the time for families to get together and spend some quality time relaxing and having fun. This year, instead of sticking to the same vacation spots your family always visits like Disney or the Great Lakes, consider picking a more exotic locale for your family vacation getaway. Your family can have the adventure of a lifetime when you go for an all-in-one vacation package that encompasses all your needs and desires. Leave the work to the travel professionals, sit back and relax (until it’s time to start packing!). Down Under Endeavours is a luxury travel agency whose destination specialists create custom vacation packages tailored to your family’s interests and imagination. Below are four of the vacation packages they suggest for an incredible family vacation.

Family vacations should create forever lasting memories while being fun and even educational for the whole family. Instead of the long lines at Disney or a typical family cruise, embark on a journey that will leave an impression on your family forever. Enjoy the truly breathtaking views and scenery, magical beaches and waterfalls, local customs, delicious food, lots of adventure and more. Here at Down Under Endeavours we create a custom itinerary for your family for an unforgettable vacation that will go above and beyond your biggest expectations.

Perfect for the young or the young-at-heart, this was a trip of a lifetime for a family from New Jersey who wanted to see the highlights of Australia in a family-friendly way. From cuddling with koalas to meeting with zookeepers to snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef to spotting glowworms in an ancient rainforest, the locations and activities in this itinerary kept them entertained at a relaxed pace. The best part of the trip was the overnight experience at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo, where they got a behind-the-scenes tour after the tourists all went home and they had a sumptuous roast feast!
