Family City Breaks in Australia and the Pacific

Although those with kids are more likely to be based in the countryside or by the sea when taking family holidays in Australia and New Zealand, there are times when you might need or want to be in a city – perhaps when you’re en route to or from the airport, or for a spot of sightseeing.

We’ve hand-picked child-friendly options in some of the key cities. Some are luxury hotels with an array of family amenities, including swimming pools for cooling down after a day in the heat. Others are apartments particularly useful for but not limited to longer stays, offering self-catering facilities and more space to spread out in. 

And then there are some that combine the best of both worlds – ‘apart-hotels’ or hotels that have apartments as well as regular guest rooms and suites, giving you the flexibility of self catering but also access to the usual amenities of a hotel.

See our city breaks with kids tips.
