Summer Holidays Are Just Around The Corner – Which Holiday Destination Will Your Family Be Heading To This Summer?

With school holidays nearing closer and parents rapidly preparing for the summer holidays, many Australian families will be planning to getaway before the new school year begins. Now that many states have lifted their border restrictions the options are endless when deciding where you want to take your family away to this summer.

As Australian’s countdown to the end of a rather strange year, almost everyone will be looking to have a much-needed break, so this could mean some of Australia’s most popular destinations may become even more crowded this summer.

Data provided by travel site Wotif, has revealed how Australians have radically altered their regular summer travel plans. Coastal hotspots such as Byron Bay, Whitsundays and the Coral Coast are seeing more interest than in previous years. While residents from Western Australia, Queensland and Tasmania, are unlikely to travel outside their state borders this summer. Even Melburnians are searching for holidays within regional Victoria, now that the elusive ring of steel has been lifted.

It is looking like less people will be holidaying outside of their own states this year, or only crossing into their bordering state. This is also going to lead to a huge increase in camping trips, with more caravans than ever on the road this summer. The Caravan Industry Association of Australia is expecting a surge this summer, with over 741,000 registered recreational vehicles, there will be addition interest from ‘first timers’ due to the pandemic preventing international holidaying.

Many Victorians are planning a regional getaway this year, or just over the boarder to NSW. According to the Wotif data, Victorians were searching for holidays in Geelong and along the Great Ocean Road.
