Best Family Travel Blogs, by Aussies

Family bloggers from Australia are on this list in no particular order, they include some of the best family travel stories from the land down-under and overseas.


This post may include affiliate links to products we love and use, please read our disclaimer.


If you are not on the list, and I know that we must have loads more blogs to include,  just add your website name in the comments section below and we’ll get you on here too! The only criteria are that you must be an Aussie family of travellers…

Are you thinking about starting a travel blog?

We use Siteground to host our multiple blogs and highly recommend them for excellent hosting, their customer service help is awesome. We’ve used other hosting companies so know just how vital a good host is!

Their basic hosting plan is all you need to get started.

With Siteground, it is quite easy to set up a blog using ‘WordPress’, the most used content management system around. Starting slowly and not getting overwhelmed is the key.

  • Register a good website name with Crazy Domains in your own country, we prefer using a .com name as it is worldwide and keeps the name simple.

Avada WordPress Theme  All our blogs are using the Avada Theme (templates). With plenty of configuration options and being easy to use, it is little wonder Avada is one of the most popular WordPress themes for bloggers.


Love Pirates

I’m a forty (odd) year old husband and father who’s terrified of blogging but loves writing. Originally from Scotland, I now live in Sydney with my wife and two kids.

I didn’t know anyone with children when my wife was expecting the first time around. So I’d sit in front of my computer at the end of the day and squeeze my life out onto the keys. And the more I wrote, the more I could make sense of it all. I haven’t really stopped since.

Adventure and Sunshine

“There is nothing like the feeling when you step off a plane, bus or boat in a new place. It is a sensory explosion as you take in the sights, smells, sounds and feel of your new destination. Ever since we first travelled overseas in our early 20’s, we have sought out new places to explore. We have been fortunate to visit over 35 countries to date and have always dreamed of sharing our joy of travel with our kids”.
