Pack up the family for a cheap holiday

AS THE school holidays loom, two families share their tips on packing up the kids and getting away for an adventure on a budget.

Inside the December 3 Weekend magazine, one mum shares her experience of travelling across Australia with her husband and three children.

She gives tips on how to make the dream of an extended road trip come true for your family.

Another family shares experiences of camping with kids and essentials for those holidays.

This Weekend magazine is packed with travel, including a Gold Coast getaway that takes in more than the theme parks of the region and winter wonderlands in Europe that make perfect white Christmas destinations.
