The ‘how-to guide’ for multigenerational holidays in WA

May 22, 2014 Corporate No Comments Email Email

unnamed (17)With Australians living longer, healthier lives, the four-million baby boomers approaching retirement want to make the most of these later years spending quality time with family.

A recent study looking into Australian travellers’ holiday motivations and behaviour revealed Aussies are passionate about sharing childhood holiday experiences with their children and grandchildren.[1]

Quality T-QUAL endorsed tourism operators are already accommodating the growing need of these multigenerational holiday makers; just like Dean Massie, General Manager at Aspen Parks and Resorts Exmouth Cape Holiday Park, and owner of Ningaloo Ecology Cruises, Alek Nowak, who are unnamed (18)helping to put the spotlight on the importance of quality tourism through their involvement with T-QUAL’s Q-Factor campaign.

Massie and Nowak have shared their top five tips on how to organise a hassle-free, quality short-break that every generation can enjoy:

 1)     Book with quality providers: looking for the T-QUAL Tick when booking will ensure your holiday providers will deliver consistently high standards and quality experiences, so you can relax knowing your family will be taken care of and your expectations will be met. 

2)     Holiday parks and resorts provide the perfect base for family holidays to day trip from. As General Manager at the T-QUAL endorsed Aspen Parks and Resorts Exmouth Cape Holiday Park, Dean Massie knows that unnamed (19)location and convenience is paramount for any multigenerational trip. Exmouth Cape Holiday Park offers a gateway to the Ningaloo Reef and the perfect base for every member of the family, with a host of accommodation types to choose from, as well as a playground, swimming pool, BBQs and a variety of amenities onsite.

3)     Look for day trip experiences that suit all ages and mobility levels. Where better to take a day trip with the family, than to a family-owned and operated multi-award winning business? Alek Nowak, owner and passionate tour guide at Ningaloo Ecology Cruises, loves sharing the wonders of the Exmouth and World Heritage Ningaloo Reef with guests – all from the comfort of a glass bottom boat, so you only need to get wet if you want to. Although with snorkel gear provided and highly-experienced guides on board the boat, there’s no reason why every generation of the family wouldn’t want to jump in to the clear, warm waters of the Ningaloo Reef.

4)     Make the most of the weather by choosing the best season for everyone. While Exmouth is blessed with a consistently warm and dry climate, for those more sensitive to the heat, the winter months provide the best time to visit, as temperatures sit around a comfortable 25 degrees. June and July are also the best months to spot Whale Sharks, Humpback Whales and Manta Rays.
