The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit fans have the chance to visit Bilbo Baggins' home in Hobbiton or as it is more commonly known, Waikato, New Zealand.

VISIT A CAVE FILLED WITH GLOW WORMS

For a magical tour that your children are sure to love, take a boat trip through the Waitomo Glowworm Caves in New Zealand. Thousands of tiny glowworms will illuminate your way and create a fairy-tale backdrop to your holiday. Kids aged 12 and above can raft down the subterranean river and jump off cascading waterfalls with the help of experienced guides.

04
SLEEP AT THE ZOO

Your kids are sure to go wild for the Roar & Snore Adventure at Taronga Zoo. They can now spend the night in safari tents that are set amongst the enclosures and offer jawdropping views of Sydney Harbour Bridge. After waking to the sound of a trumpeting elephant, your tots can then go behind the scenes at the zoo and help the zoo keepers with feeding time. Now that's what you call a family adventure in New South Wales.

GO WHALE WATCHING 

Visit Kaikoura in New Zealand for a little whale watching. Book a cruise and brace yourself for a glimpse or two of the magnificent Sperm whales that congregate around the 3km-deep Kaikoura Canyon. A shot of a tail fin rising up out of the water has to be the ultimate holiday photograph.
