New Zealand's South Island has some of the most spectacular landscapes. On clear autumn days you can get the picture-perfect postcard image - blue lakes, snow-capped mountains and gorgeous fall colours.
On the bucket list for just about every Australian - a drive down the Great Ocean Road. The famous Twelve Apostles warrant a stop (from locals and tourists alike), if only to see them before they all collapse under the relentless pounding of the southern ocean.
Avatar Grove, near Port Renfrew on Vancouver Island, boasts Canada's gnarliest tree. It's a fairly short walk that is suitable for young children (our's were 4 and 7 at the time), but can be a bit muddy. When you reach the tree there is a platform where you can stand and have your photo taken. If you look hard enough on the ground you'll find banana slugs and when you look up the trees seem to rise infinitely up into the sky.
In Karijini NP, Western Australia, you'll find the most amazing gorges and canyons. This place is suited to older children and teenagers who can swim and withstand the humidity and multitude of insects. Joffre Falls is only one of the incredible sights you'll find there.
