Family Vacations... Worldwide


All kids travelling to Australia receive
Goway's unique backpack

Of all the holidays you take, family vacations are most likely to create the best memories of your lifetime. Please scroll down for "At Your Service"

One destination perfect for this is Australia. There are so many things which are “kid friendly” in this country while, at the same time offering a wealth of interests for adults. With its excellent climate, varied attractions, urban or scenic and friendly, outgoing people, Australia is a great choice for a family vacation. (And everyone speaks English!

What would interest your children (and yourself)? Zoos, aquariums, wildlife sanctuaries, unique marine life viewing, maybe diving or snorkeling and perhaps theme parks for a start. And how about riding on a unique miniature train or taking an amphibious army duck to meet Goway’s “adopted” koala bears, Matilda, Walter and Kiah. Four family Itineraries prepared by Goway include enough to keep anyone occupied for 1 or 2 weeks.

KIDS FLY FREE

At different times of the year we offer above to different Idyllic Islands in the South Pacific.

Please enquire

From large cities such as Sydney, a visit to the Gold Coast to enjoy a beach vacation to an experience on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia won’t fail to thrill.

Another country offering family vacations with animal viewing is South Africa. Goway provides the opportunity to enjoy the Shamwari Game Reserve near Port Elizabeth combined with a stay in Cape Town including a visit to the Two Oceans Aquarium and the Grootbos Nature Reserve where children's activities are not just activities – they are a combination of education and fun in a wonderful nature setting.

Or perhaps, a very special visit to Ecuador’s Galapagos Islands to see how nature evolved - a history and anthropology lesson all in one. Simply join a Galapagos cruise and let the experts tell you all about it. Your children can get up close with many of the animals and birds. Here is a quote from one parent. “As always – memorable, but more so seeing the joy, wonder and excitement in the eyes of my children as they sat feet from seals, blue footed boobies and albatrosses”

AT YOUR SERVICE

Below are sample ideas for you to consider. Like most Goway suggestions they are flexible and can be modified according to your interests, budget and time available. Let us design a personalized itinerary that could become your most memorable family vacation.
