Travelling with Children
Travelling with children can be rewarding and fun if you’re properly prepared and do your research before you leave.
The Australian Government Smart Traveller website provides parents with information to help prepare for a hassle-free and safe journey. It should be read in conjunction with Travel smart – hints for Australian travellers.

It also provides information on specific issues that will be relevant to some Australians, including child support, dual nationality, overseas births, adoption and surrogacy, and abductions.
When you travel abroad, you leave behind Australia’s support systems, emergency service capabilities and medical facilities. The Australian Government will do what it can to help Australians in difficulty overseas, but there are legal and practical limits to what can be done to assist travellers in other countries. You should have realistic expectations about this and read the Consular Services Charter before you go.
