Stay Wild, Family travel to Tasmania & beyond…

Matty and Delilah spotting wallabies at Aplite House, Friendly Beaches.

I was chatting with a friend yesterday around the idea of taking holidays in the same spot year after year. There’s a lovely nostalgic feeling about returning to your favourite haunts, visiting the same friends, booking the same restaurants… and with a family it’s nice to feel these experiences grow as you do. 

When we discovered Virgin Australia’s 50% off kids fares this week – we locked in 4 flights to Tasmania in March 2020.

Our first trip to the Apple Isle. No hot showers for days but the stars made up for it.
Van life, somewhere just near Marrawah.

For us, Tasmania has certainly become one of these destinations! Matt and I have been travelling to Tassie since we first met (a long time before the kids came along!).

Van trips when there was just the 2 (and a half) of us…

We love visiting similar areas and witnessing how things change and evolve, but also welcome the new – like all the incredible boutique AirBnBs, restaurants and cafes which are opening up at rapid pace down there. 

Quiet moments at this special little shack by the sea. Captain’s Rest, Strahan.

With some of the best food, beaches, mountains and bushwalks it suits nature lovers like us to a tee. I always think of Tasmania as the last frontier, the last place our family can really run wild and dream big.

So, if you’re thinking of planning a family trip to Tassie (or anywhere else in Oz or NZ for that matter) the time to book is now – our travel partner Virgin Australia is offering 50% all kids fares. This sale ends Oct 30th.
