Fiji is an easy flight from Australia and a wonderful family holiday. Why pick Fiji holiday over other destinations? Fijians. I kid you not, you honestly couldn’t get more friendly or more cheerful people. These big strong Fijian men picking up my chubby blonde toddler was heartwarming. Everywhere we went the adults and the children just wanted to squeeze your child’s chubby cheeks. It’s relaxing and soothing to see so much love and affection.

This does of course mean you will need to consider all the normal things in life like groceries and food but many houses come with these services. Babysitting can also be sourced in private houses.
