About us Wyld Family Travel
IN A WORLD WITH INCREASINGLY LESS FAMILY TIME AVAILABLE WE BELIEVE TRAVELLING WITH OUR KIDS CAN ONLY MAKE US A CLOSER-KNIT FAMILY. WE WANT TO MAKE OUR KIDS MORE BALANCED AND ACCEPTING CHILDREN BY EXPOSING THEM TO DIFFERENT CULTURES AND NATIONALITIES ALONG THE WAY. WE WANT TO RAISE GLOBAL CITIZENS
Why a family travel website?
We are Mark, Rebecca, Willow and Marley. We are a travel-loving family who lives east of Melbourne Australia in regional Victoria. We started the Wyld Family Travel website back in 2015. We began Wyld Family Travel as a way to share our family travel stories and photos from around the world and our own backyard with friends. Today, over half a decade later it’s morphed into a growing enterprise that sees us travelling with kids for fun and business. We travel independently and in co-operation with many well-known travel brands.

Our Travel Style
I guess you could say we are more Chardonnay than Champagne, more 3 stars than 5 stars when it comes to travelling as a family. Although we love to travel the world and see new things, we try not to rush between the famous touristy sights just to tick them off a travel bucket list. Yes, we realise not everyone has a lot of time and big-ticket attractions are important but where possible we like to base ourselves in a spot from anywhere between 1 week and 1 month.
This allows our family to experience, understand and immerse ourselves in different cultures and to learn from them. We like to stay in local areas where you can meet the locals and get a real feel for the place. Having time to wander, explore and find hidden gems off the beaten path is our travel style. Travelling with teenagers and kids requires some degree of planning to make the most of your time in each location.
We stay in everything from hotels to hostels and even caravan parks to get the most value out of our time and our family travel budget. You are more likely to find us eating street food like Satay Chicken sticks in Indonesia and Zapiekanka in Poland than sitting in the latest trendy restaurant. We use public transport over taxis, we research free activities such as city walking tours and free museum entries to allow our budget to go further. Travel with kids does not need to be 5 stars, kids clubs and resorts.

Travel with teens
The Wyld children, Willow and Marley, are now both teenagers and the focus of our family travel website has turned to creating city guides for families with teenagers. The great thing about travelling with teens is they can enjoy adult activities as well as age-appropriate activities.
Complimenting our travel with teens city guides are articles featuring, travel tips, accommodation, travel products, eating, and food tours that will suit the whole family.

Frequently asked questions about us Wyld Family Travel
How old were our kids when we first went overseas?
We ventured on a 5-week trip to Europe from Australia with our daughter Willow when she was 10 months old. We pushed a stroller through Amsterdam, Prague, Paris, Budapest, and Munich. We have travelled with babies, small children, tweens and now teens.
How many countries have you been to as a family?
As a family, we have travelled to over 40 countries in Australasia, Asia, and Europe. Some countries include Iceland, Kazakhstan, China, Poland and more well-known city destinations such as Paris, London, Rome, Singapore, Seoul and more.
How are you able to afford to travel with kids?
We are not rich by any means. We have a mortgage, bills and more like everyone else. Travel is more than a holiday for us it is a way of life. We prioritise saving for travel over buying new cars, drinking café coffee every day and buying things on a whim. If you want to save for travel next time you’re at the shops, ask yourself ” Do I need this or do I want this?”
