    You didn't mention how long you have or what kind of things your kids like doing so it's really hard to give you a good answer. This site is full of tips and advice for Australia, but it's worth narrowing it down somewhat in your searches.

    If you like like nature and national parks, they are found everywhere, even on the outskirts of a big city like Sydney. If you like cities and urban adventures, Sydney and Melbourne are your best bets. Beaches? More or less everywhere. Theme Parks for kids? The Gold Coast is the place to go.

    It is such a huge country, the seasons are totally different from one end to the other! For example, a good time to visit far north Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef for snorkelling is over 'winter' - May-August. But these same months are absolutely freezing if you're spending time in the south, such as Melbourne or Tasmania. almost 6 years ago

    If you have the time a rugged outback adventure to the Red Centre (Uluru AND the West MacDonnell Ranges) and/or the Kimberleys, WA would be exciting -
    Both of which are 'winter'destinations - May - August. almost 6 years ago

    Cairns has some great activities including a train trip and cable car over the rainforest and of course a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef and a trip to a butterfly farm etc. I reckon the east coast would be your best bet. You can go out an interact with dolphins on an island/resort off Brisbane.

    O'Reiily Guesthouse in the hinterland from Brisbane has great nature walks and activities and of course on the Gold coast you have many theme parks. You wouldn't go far wrong flying into Cairns and making your way down to Sydney which of course has tonnes of attraction including Darling Harbour, the Sydney Tower and Oztrek, harbour, beaches, Opera House, bridge etc.

    There are so many options it'd be useful if you could add more information. For example, if you visit Sydney you can do something as inexpensive as catching the Ferry to Manly (great trip BTW) or as costly as a Harbour Bridge climb....... almost 6 years ago

    Yeah and the activities laid on in the Blue Mountains, reachable by train, should go down a treat with kids. You can choose a one or 2 day package, the 2 day package will enable you to visit some caves. Aim to get to the mountains early on the first day so as to get to fit in everything. In Noosa North Shore, just north of Brisbane, I stayed in an inexpensive lodgings with kangaroos just outside the door, visited the everglades by boat & enjoyed its beaches. almost 6 years ago
