Discovering local wildlife, sleeping underground and learning about the world’s oldest living culture – kid-approved Aussie travel bucket list revealed

June 23, 2021 Oceania News No Comments

Today, the go-to site for domestic travel announces the official Wotif Aussie Kids Bucket List – the definitive list of 13 dream Aussie travel experiences to do before you turn 13, as decided by Aussie kids1.

With the majority (86%) of Aussie families set to take a domestic holiday this year and most Aussie kids (61%)
eager to see and try different travel experiences within Australia2 , Wotif is flipping the traditional concept of a
bucket list and releasing a list of Australia’s top kid-approved activities, to inspire Aussie families as they set out
to explore their own backyard in the months ahead.

The Wotif Aussie Kids Bucket List reveals Queensland is the ultimate family destination, with the sunshine state receiving almost half (47%) of the total nominations. While nothing beats a day of thrill rides and character meet-and-greets at Queensland’s Gold Coast theme parks, it’s just one of the adventurous, quirky and educational experiences across the country that also topped the list.

Wotif Managing Director, Daniel Finch said: “We asked Aussie kids to tell us what their dream travel experience
in Australia would be and it’s clear today’s kids are young adventurers, excited to explore everything their backyard has to offer. From sleeping underground in Coober Pedy, to witnessing whale sharks in Exmouth or learning about Aboriginal culture in the Northern Territory, it’s fantastic to see how energised kids are about travelling within their own country.

“We want to inspire families to get exploring and look for education outside of the classroom. From Australia’s
rich culture, unique wildlife, and diverse geography, we hope the Aussie Kids Bucket List motivates families to get their kids involved in the holiday planning and commit to seeing some of the incredible sights in Australia.”

The entries showed Aussie kids generally want what they don’t have. Kids from the southern states are dreaming of a tropical holiday or “anywhere the water is warm”, whereas young Aussies from warmer climes
are keen to see snow. As one child put it “I’d like to touch snow, see snow, play in the snow… make a snow
man and drink all the best hot chocolates.” Interestingly, Queensland kids seem to buck the trend and were
most excited to see more of their own state.
