Surfing, spa treatments, mountainbiking and monkeys ... Bali has something for everyone.

Q. What are some good value family destinations you would recommend for a winter escape in July 2017?

There are a number of options for families that give great value.

Fiji has excellent competitive prices for a quick winter break. Gold Coast is always going to be an economical option with an abundance of accommodation choices.

If you are prepared to travel a little further, then I would recommend looking at Bali as a destination. I have taken my family here, as it presents fantastic value for money and appeals to all ages. We have children aged 6, 8, 16, and 18 years and they all said it was the best family trip ever!

Comparatively, package pricing for Bali is coming out very similar to other Pacific Island destinations. Even more attractive is that your costs are very little for food and beverages while you are there.

This destination is great for the flop and drop traveller, as well as the active traveller with options to learn to surf, visit the Monkey Forest, swim with turtles, mountainbiking, river rafting, shopping, massage spa treatments, yoga. All this is offered at very economical pricing.

We would love to hear from you to assist you in booking your family trip.
