What was your favorite family holiday? Do you like overseas adventures or cruising the local roads? We are certainly blessed for local adventure options so before you plan your next family adventure, whether it’s long haul or a day trip – find your way using some ace tips from this issue of haven.

In amongst my family’s busy schedule we aim for a fun day trip as often as we can and take turns picking the destination (yes, even the five year old gets to choose every now and again!). We’ve chased waterfalls, hit the surf, watched movie marathons and explored the hinterland of late. The kids love being the leader of our little tribe!

haven has loads of giveaways this issue including more than 30 family passes to see the new Smurfs movie, family passes to see The Boss Baby, Disney on Ice, travel journals and swimwear – all under our WIN tab on the haven website.

Remember, Easter is just around the corner (yes, that means school holidays again!) so we’ve started uncovering some school holiday ideas, awesome events and travel tips. Be sure to stay in the know and join our weekly dose of haven online for what’s on and other stories.

Happy days!
