Amazing experiences start here!

Welcome to Travel with Boys, where we aim to give families with boys the confidence, inspiration and resources to get out there and discover there is so much more to life than their to-do list.

We are bringing the fun back into family trips, as we search for the best things for families of boys to see, do, eat, stay and play around Australia and the world.

Thanks to the launch of our specially crafted guide and itinerary planner, MY GUIDE, you will be able to search, plan, save and book all your favourite attractions, food and accommodation in one place. The Gold Coast is the first destination to be rolled out
and there are plenty more cities and regions to come as we make our way around Australia.

They’re only kids once, so let’s go make some memories!

What’s so different about travelling with boys?

Well a lot of things really, especially when you bring a few of them along. Travel with boys is usually fast paced, noisy and not for the faint-hearted. Boys learn differently, communicate differently, and enjoy different things to their female counterparts. Boys often take bigger risks and love more action (cue the Band-aids and ER department), and need space to run and wrestle.

Don’t get us wrong, girls are going to love much of what we discover, but when we are searching for the best, then it’s only boys and their families we have in mind.
