Where do you like to holiday with your family?
We camp on the Sapphire Coast every summer (Narooma) with three or four other families, which is great.
What do you remember about family holidays you had as a child?
Long drives with no air-conditioning, eye spy, funny stories, sun burn, surfing, Paddle Pops, fishing but not catching and sand in the bed.
Do you take the kids to places you went to as a child?
We have, but it’s also nice to find your own holiday spots.
What are some of your favourite things you like to do with the kids on holidays?
Be with the kids, first and foremost. We’re yet to put them in Kids’ Club because it seems to go against the idea of a “family holiday”.
What is your favourite family resort or hotel?
I don’t have a favourite. If it’s warm, and there’s the chance of cracking a wave, smashing a golf ball or hooking a fish – that place is for us.
Are you into beach, snow, adventure or cultural holidays?
Everything but snow, although Jac, my wife, is working very hard to change that.
Any tips on how to make a holiday with kids better?
Include them in your plans. If you set yourself up for a holiday of pampering and massages and shopping – you’ll get a bit of a shock when you find you’ve got to get something for the kids to do too.
Is there anywhere on your holiday wish list you haven’t been or would like to take the kids?
There is a whole world of places I’d like to take them. They’re pretty good travellers and generally interested so almost anywhere is up for grabs.
