Spending quality time as a family doesn’t have to cost a fortune. There’s are plenty of options that a family can engage in together without breaking the budget. Here are seven great things to do in Australia for a family looking to spend under $100.
1) Have a barbecue.
For nothing more than the cost of food and fuel (assuming you own a BBQ, of course), you can enjoy the weather and each other’s company from the comfort of your own home. This is a great option for families that want to stay local but still step out of their house.
2) Host a family game night.
Of course, you don’t need to leave the house to have a good time! Playing board games with the family doesn’t cost a dollar, and can be a great way to have some fun while encouraging kids to put down their electronics for a while.
3) Take a trip to the beach.
For those looking for a bit of fun in the sun, why not grab some towels, slather on some sunscreen and head to the beach? Throw a Frisbee around, go for a swim, snorkel or surf – you’ve always got options at the beach, and they don’t have to cost you the world.
4) Visit a public garden.
Australia is home to many public gardens, which feature exotic plants from all over the world. The gardens come in a variety of designs, ranging from Victorian to Chinese, and are a great way to spend quality time with your family while stopping to smell the roses – literally.
5) Go on a nature walk.
Another option that doesn’t have to cost a dime is to go on a nature walk with your family. Australia has no shortage of nature trails and paths to enjoy during fair weather, this can be a great way to spend quality time and simply enjoy each other’s company. If you plan to be out for a while, you can pack a lunch and make a picnic out of the excursion as well!
6) Take your bikes out for a ride.
Why not hop on a bicycle and go for a ride as a family? This can be a great way to spend time together while also getting a bit of exercise; you don’t have to stay near home, either. You can make a miniature “road trip” out of it and journey to a local destination, combining riding a bike with many of the other options in this list.7 Family Fun Ideas for Under $100 Click To Tweet
