Great Keppel Island – where you can find your own deserted stretch of pristine sand and snorkel for hours. Where if you go for a walk or hike you might run into some wild goats and echidnas. Where you can snorkel the Southern Great Barrier Reef without the crowds. Where there is an eerily deserted resort behind a large fence that seems a little out of place for this island.

Did you know that the Devils Marbles seem to glow red when the sun sets on them, much like Uluru and Kata Tjuta ? Or that you can camp RIGHT next to them and marvel at the changing colours of the sunet and sunrise ? The Devils Marbles are a fantastic place to travel with kids as its interesting, beautiful and best of all, there is LOTS of space for them to run around and burn off all that energy from sitting in the car.
Did you know that there are quite a few places to camp in Central Australia ? This means that you and your kids can visit all of those iconic landmarks without having to remortgage the house.
I came here for Uluru, but ended up falling in love with Kata Tjuta. This place has a stunning landscape and is far less ‘touristy’ than Uluru. Maybe thats why it feels so special?
Do Uluru and Kids mix well? ….. Yes they do!! Uluru is surprisingly kid friendly, which makes visiting easy and rewarding. There are lots of kid friendly ways to explore Uluru and it’s a fantastic way to introduce kids to the interesting Aboriginal culture.
The Pros and Cons of Hanoi with Kids and Activities to do in Hanoi with Kids
Kings Canyon is often overlooked because of how well Uluru is marketed as the icon of Central Australia, however Kings Canyon is capable of being a must see destination in it’s own right. Traveling with kids.
Tnorala (Gosse Bluff) is a surprise gem in Central Australia and it would be a real shame if you came all this way and only saw Uluru.
Lots of sand, cool water and floating on an inner tube…..sounds like a nice day at the beach right ? The waterholes in Central Australia have a LOT more to offer than you may realise !
Ormiston Gorge is a MUST SEE outback swimming spot in Central Australia. It’s fantastic if you are traveling with kids because there is heaps of sand (just like a beach), lots of rocks to practice climbing over, freezing cold water to either stick your feet in or swim in, and lots of untouched nature to explore.
