Cathy Wagstaff, Aleney de Winter and the team at HWK
Winter is here, but instead of diving under the doona to beat the chill, our jet-setting team of writers has been exploring the best family destinations near and far to fill this issue with loads of hot holiday ideas for a cool winter break.
We say aloha to Hawaii, discover tradition and innovation in Tokyo, find more to explore in Bali, make memories in Malaysia, kick back in Fiji, experience the high life in Peru and enjoy a mother-daughter exploration of Sri Lanka.
Our expert team also reveals all you need to know to plan a family dive holiday, shows there’s more than one way to travel with a tot in tow and gets you rugged-up and slope ready for the Northern Hemisphere ski season.
If you’re planning a holiday on home turf, we show you the best spots for a whale of a time along the Australian coast, boot scoot to Tamworth, camp out on the Coffs Coast, take a city break in Brisbane, unearth the best of the Northern Territory for kids, chill out in Canberra and warm things up in Outback Queensland.
There’s also an in-depth look at how to raise responsible travellers, plus we travel to infinity and beyond with our newest team member, 10-year-old Rafferty Laight, Australia’s youngest (and cutest) travel editor and columnist.
