Australia with kids… Should We or Shouldn’t We?

Posted by


  • Awesome weather in December
  • Awesome culture
  • Awesome zoo and wildlife
  • Awesome life experience


  • 22 hour flight from Canada, which makes for 24+ hours of travel
  • Experience and memory for kids 8 and 9?
  • Jetlag

We seriously considered taking the girls to Australia with us in December.  My husband has to go for work and I absolutely love that country.  I had a great time there in 2009 when I was pregnant with our first child.

We want our kids to see the world so we spent a week discussing this (hushed!) and researching.  In the end, we decided to wait until they’re older.  I think they’ll be able to handle the flights and time change better and they will remember more of the experience, and possibly have more of an appreciation for the magnitude of the trip to the other side of the globe.

On to the next one!
