HBF Healthy Family Holidays Report (PDF)


We surveyed over 400 Western Australian parents of 0-12 year olds and enlisted a team of child and family health experts to better understand the impact family holidays have on kids’, parents’ and overall family health.

Unsurprisingly, the overwhelming answer is yes, holidays are good for us! Hopefully this is just the encouragement you need to book your family’s next trip away.

  • 9 in 10 WA parents believe regular holidays are important for their family's health. 5 in 10 believe they are very important.

  • Parents believe having quality time with no distractions (33%), time to de-stress (30%) and a break from routine (26%) are the top reasons why regular holidays are good for their family's health.

  • The majority of parents (86%) believe parents and children benefit equally from family holidays.

In the HBF Healthy Family Holidays Report, you’ll learn why the majority of WA parents and health experts believe taking time out together as a family (even just a day-trip) can do wonders for our physical, emotional and mental health.

And to help make your next family holiday a reality, we’ve compiled a guide of family-friendly destinations, tips on how to save for a holiday and advice on how to make your holiday dollars stretch further.
