It feels like the kids only just went back to school, but with the September holidays fast approaching, it’s time to plan the next trip to keep them occupied for two weeks. While we may be dreaming of lying on a beach (alone) with a good book and a personal butler to bring Aperol Spritzs on command, the reality is more children calling ‘Muuummm, what are we doing today?’
That’s where our Holiday Guide comes in. Because you’re too busy between work, kids and everything else that pops up on a daily basis to have time to research where to take them, we’ve done it for you. And when you’ve finished choosing your next getaway location, we’ve created a curated style edit to take the guess work out of what to pack….
Some of the best beaches are on our doorstep and there is no strip of sand quite like Cable Beach in Broome, Western Australia. Riding with the kids on camels at sunset is something they’ll remember for years. Even playing on the sand before watching the sun slip into the ocean at sunset is enough to entertain children in this incredible location. Broome sunsets are truly magical and it’s also the only place in the world where you can take a hovercraft out to the ocean’s floor and watch the sun go down.
With scenic flights, whale watching and fishing trips on offer, it’s the perfect family holiday destination.
