Coming soon

As Australia dons its dazzling best to celebrate the onset of spring, the team at Holidays with Kids is partying like its 1999: a year that saw a lot of game changers for travellers. It was the year the euro first went into circulation. Bluetooth, USB flash drives and Apple's super portable iBook all made their debut. And Australia's #1 multi-platform family travel network, Holidays with Kids, was born, making travel information and inspiration accessible to Australian families for the first time.

To celebrate our big 2-0, our bumper birthday issue is heaving with holiday inspiration including the announcement of our 18th annual Readers' Choice Top 10 Resorts Awards.

The annual survey asks readers to reveal their favourite family travel experiences, taking onto consideration a number of factors, including kids' clubs and activities; comfort for all ages; facilities for kids and parents (such as spas and adults-only zones); proximity to attractions; and, of course, service that treats both parents and kids alike with respect. As always, our readers have responded with enthusiasm and the result is a curated catalogue of hotels and resorts across the globe that stand out as extra special in the family travel market. Of course, this has seen continued recognition for longstanding family favourites, but there are also some surprise first-time contenders as our readers travel further and more resorts up their family game.

Holidays with Kids would like to extend our warm congratulations to all of the 2019 nominees and of course, the worthy winners. We also owe a huge thank you to our readers, and their continued enthusiasm for travel.
