We put together this Australia Family Vacation Packages: Sydney and Batemans Bay vacation for a family from Palm Beach, Florida. They wanted unique adventures in Sydney, plus a beach getaway in a less touristed area. After their Sydney vacation, we sent them to beautiful Batemans Bay for great beaches and wildlife.

Their Australia Family Vacation Packages: Sydney and Batemans Bay journey began in cosmopolitan Sydney. They enjoyed fun, local adventures in Australia’s largest city: they climbed to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge at twilight for spectacular views of the city, toured the Sydney Opera House, took a fabulous morning cruise on the harbor, and went on a fun bike tour of Sydney’s highlights. They also were able to experience the incredible, world-famous fireworks show at Sydney Harbour for New Year’s Eve.

Next for their Australia Family Vacation Packages: Sydney and Batemans Bay vacation, they picked up a rental car and drove down to Batemans Bay. This small coastal town is home to incredible beaches, national parks, and Australian wildlife. On the drive down, they drove through breathtaking scenery and stopped at some local beaches with no one else around.

During their 3 nights in Batemans Bay, they discovered the rich marine life of the area on a glass bottom kayak excursion. They were able to see fish, rays, and even octopuses! The next day, they went to beautiful Murramarang National Park and then to Pebbly Beach, where wild kangaroos hop on the sand.

Continuing their Australia Family Vacation Packages: Sydney and Batemans Bay vacation, they drove back up to Sydney via the gorgeous coastal route. They stayed right on the popular Bondi Beach, a favorite spot for the locals, and had a surfing lesson one morning. The rest of their time was free to take in all the sights they didn’t want to miss before heading home.
