Round up the gang and make memories you’ll cherish forever on a family adventure in Australia.
Enjoy delicious campfire dinners under the stars, search for crocs on a wildlife cruise in the Daintree, splash around in waterfalls in Kakadu National Park, and take part in First Nations culture workshops that the kids – both big and small – will love. Not only will your kids have a blast while getting to know other families on the trip, but you'll get to relax with fellow parents over dinner and a few drinks. There won't be a whisper of iPads or Netflix with all the excitement and action-packed activities you'll be experiencing every day.

Yes, there is a 10% discount on the price of trips for all children aged 17 and under.
Most of our trips have a minimum age of either 5 or 10 years old, depending on the physical demands of the itinerary. Check the Essential Trip Information for the minimum age required for each trip.
Trips with a minimum age of 5 are suitable for all ages, and we can even tell you in advance the age of kids already booked on that departure. Most of our child travellers are aged between 8 and 18 years old.
Just like our regular Intrepid trips, we like to have a blend of included activities and free time. Our itineraries often have planned activities in the morning followed by free time in the afternoon. Alternatively, if we have two full days of activities we follow it with a free day to allow you and the kids to spend time together and relax.
Our family trips are just that – for the whole family. That means you don’t have to leave aunties, uncles and grandparents at home. As long as there's at least one child under the age of 18 travelling with you, you’re a family group.
If your children are over the age of 18, our regular Intrepid tours are still a great way to enjoy the small group travel experience. Children over 18 years of age are considered to be adults and therefore cannot participate in an Intrepid Family Adventure unless travelling with a younger sibling and their parents.
We understand swimming is always a big draw for kids, so we try to use hotels, resorts and campsites with pools where possible. Depending on how far off the beaten track the itinerary wanders, there may not be hotels with pools nearby, but the great thing about many of our Australia trips is that we'll be visiting national parks and rainforests where you can swim in freshwater pools and waterfalls.
Adults travelling on an Intrepid trip must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of carriage. This means you must receive the full dosage of the COVID-19 vaccine and allow enough time for immunity to take effect. Each COVID-19 vaccine has different dosages and timeframes for inoculation, so please check the relevant medical advice associated with your vaccine.
If you are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you may apply for an exemption. Exemptions will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. To apply, you must provide a medical certificate from a medical professional.
Children under 18 are exempt, however, children aged between 5 and 17 years old must provide proof of either vaccination, recovery or a negative COVID-19 test.
