Vaccinated Travel Lanes may be opening up across the world but you may not be comfortable bringing your little ones on flights and across borders. In addition there are also extra (and often hefty) costs to consider. Furthermore, the fear of getting sick overseas can also be a deterrent. If that’s the case, these fun and fabulous family staycations can help slake some of that travel lust… for a while at least!

With the latter, kids get to bed down under the ‘stars’ in a tent with their own take-home sleeping bags, receive amenities such as bathrobes, slippers, and a Fullerton bear, and go on a complimentary Fullerton Heritage Tour.
No matter which stay you book, all young guests aged 5 to 10 years old at The Fullerton Hotel are welcome to join in Fullerton Kids Club activities such as farm tours and heritage tours. All the better for mum and dad to enjoy some much-needed rest, huh?
