At just 12 years old, Bella Tipping has founded Kidzcationz, a travel review site written by kids for kids. Hear our interview with her and mum Bernadette, and check out Bella's top 5 tips for kid-friendly trips.

Disneyland
"I’ve been lucky enough to visit Disney 12 times! My favourite park is the original park at Anaheim. I just love Peter Pan’s flight, California Screaming, Radiator Springs and Autopia, even if mum and dad get a bit bored after the tenth ride!"

Nashville
"The home of Country Music in USA! Plus they have deals where you buy one pair for cool boots and you get two pairs FREE! We stay at the Gaylord Opryland and it is so huge! They have beautiful gardens and even a boat which sails around the shops." 

Port Douglas
"One of the most beautiful places in Australia.  It's amazing to be snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and see some of the most beautiful coloured fish in the world. We did a tour of Cape Tribulation and took a boat ride down the Daintree River and saw crocodiles in the wild."

Newcastle
"It's only four hours drive from our place - so it’s just up the road really! We stay at the Crowne Plaza because we love seeing the huge tankers come into the terminal. They are so huge they dwarf the hotel. We like to picnic at Blackbutt reserve - it is like an oasis in the city. But watch out for the black swans... they are feisty!"

Dubbo
"I love my hometown and really want other people to experience everything it has to offer. We’re the gateway to the bush so a venture out west will take you to the wheat belt and cotton fields. Our main attraction is the Taronga Western Plains Zoo which has animals from all around the world!"
