    I have never travelled overseas, but I would assume Thailand or Bali would be pretty cheap.

    Depends what kind of holiday you want. Bali and Thailand are good options as you can get decent accommodation dirt cheap. The airfares are what hit the hardest, try travel before your youngest turns 2 otherwise they go up to something like 75% of an adult fare. I like Singapore with kids as well. Flights are reasonable, but accommodation is more expensive then bali or thailand

    keep an eye out on deals . com . au or similar websites. We recently got 10 nights accomm in family room, all breakfasts, 2 dinners, massages etc for 2 Adults/2 kids at a gorgeous resort in Thailand for $1099. We just had to buy flights which we got at a really good price.

    Singapore is nice. Malaysia is always a favourite. Our dollar goes far there and if your flexible in travel dates can get great fares with air Asia. Can also get 5 star accommodation with breakfast for as little as 250 a night

    Thailand, Bali and Malaysia are usually the favourites - resort accommodation for cheap prices with good weather, pools and places/activities to keep the kids happy. I don't know of Fiji takes your fancy or not (usually not as cheap as SE Asia though). You can also get flight/accomm packages which can be pretty good value for money for most of these countries.

    An alternative is Japan - its actually pretty cheap (especially food which is fresh and so delicious!), it's safe, easy to get around and good for kids (Disneyland anyone?). Air asia and jetstar often have cheap flights there too. You won't get resort style accommodation cheaply, but standard hotel accommodation isn't that expensive. The only real big expense is the bullet trains if you plan on travelling out of Tokyo. We are planning a trip there next year when bubs is 1 as we thought it was so family friendly and safe while we were there.

    @merdithgrey that's what we did a few years back - got a 2 for 1 deal for both domestic flights and flights to Tokyo, so we made a combined holiday of half a week or so in Cairns with a few weeks in Japan. Just fantastic! Can't wait to go back. From memory adult prices for Disneyland was $70pp (Jan 2011), even the food in Disneyland was cheap much to our surprise!! (about $10 for a main meal!).
