Kingscliff: The perfect family holiday destination.
When it comes to thinking about the best family holiday destinations in Australia, many people single out capital cities and well known locations such as Melbourne, Sydney or Surfers Paradise.
However, it's well worth taking the time to consider one of the slightly lesser-known gems in Australia such as Kingscliff in New South Wales.
A coastal town located just south of Tweed Heads, Kingscliff offers plenty of family-friendly, interesting activities and is located near several other visitor hotspots as well - making it the ideal destination for your next family vacation.
Here are just a few of the benefits of a holiday in Kingscliff:

The Valley is home to stunning World Heritage rainforests, art galleries, historic buildings and country cafes and is the perfect way to spend a day out.
