Lovely idea by the way!

Like me we not big shoppers lol

We had such a hard year as a family and I want to reinforce what she knows is she is my heart and soul - and we need mommy and daughter time I think

If you are in country SA could you go to Adelaide? Stay in the city and explore. Research some food places, maybe do a little cooking class together , visit art galleries, get nails done, do a bit of shopping.

Or a beach holiday with plenty of relaxing. Beach, food, board games, movies

For sure get away. I did a 4 day weekend with DD and it was the best little holiday. I highly recommend a mum-daughter trip for anyone.

I don’t think the location matters, but do try to get out of the familiar. I think the most important part is to go exploring and having adventures. For sure involve her with the planning - where to stay things to do, places to eat etc.

You can hop over the Melbourne and see a show and explore museums. Or head out of Adelaide by car to the beach and a few day hikes.

When I was that age my Dad and I used to do a farm stay type thing with friends. There was horse riding, feeding the animals, helping pick some grapes once.

If the budget allows, what about Darwin? Totally different climate and feel, if you’re looking mid-year it’s just brilliant up there, lovely warm days, the markets at night, lots of interesting galleries, have some fun with fish feeding and crocodile touristy bits.
