Travelling with kids feels like you are taking everything but the kitchen sink with you- so to help you out we have also created the ultimate checklist for travelling with kids over here.

But which travelling pram is best for you?

We’ve rounded up the latest compact travel strollers in Australia to help you with your search for the top travel pram in Australia. These travel strollers aren't just great for babies but they are also a great toddler lightweight stroller. Small buggies and prams for babies are just a taste of what we've road-tested below.

What should you look for in a travel pram?

When setting out to the best travel pram, there are a few things you need to keep in mind before making your final decision.

One of the most important features of a travelling pram is its size. Most people opt for a stroller for travel as their children grow bigger and need a less bulky mode of transport. It should be small enough to fit in the boot of the car, or in the overhead compartment on an airplane.

Buying bulky prams for travel defeats the purpose of attaining a smaller, more compact solution, as you want something you can just whip out, pop baby in, and go!


Now, even if your travel pram is smaller than your regular pram, it won't necessarily serve its purpose as a solution for easier travel unless it weighs less, and folds up more compactly than a regular pram.

For example, travel prams or strollers for travel should ideally fold down with one touch and should come complete with a strap to throw over your shoulder so that you're not forced to lug it around during travel.

Travel prams or strollers are also a popular option for road trips and interstate travel, as they take up far less room in your car.


When people think of travelling prams, often they picture those flimsy umbrella strollers that many of us were carted around in as kids. However, we are thrilled to let you know that modern travel prams couldn't be further from that. In fact, many travel prams you'll see on the market could be even sturdier and of a better quality than your regular pram. It's always a good idea to read reviews and research the brand's make and model before making your purchase.

Real customer reviews:

"“Loving my new butterfly. I opened the box and you simply push in two buttons with one hand and the whole thing pops right open. It also closes that easily as well. It is light weight and so compact. It has a comfortable shoulder strap so it’s easy to carry for trips or even just to take up less room in the trunk when you have other baby stuff to haul around. I got the green and it is the prettiest color for our sweet little boy. The car seat adapter is easy to add to the stroller and his Nuna Air car seat just pops right on. I love this stroller and how it can grow with our little boy for several years to come.”" - Jlw25
"“I was looking for a compact stroller and preordered the butterfly. I originally wanted it to travel & took it on our trip. It was amazing. It easily fit in the overhead of the airplane and closes and opens so easily! You can do it one handed! Best money spent for sure and my one year old can use it plus my three year old. The extension for laying down is amazing and works great! It has been such a lifesaver and totally worth it. I highly recommend. Love how sturdy it is but also so compact at the same time. I had another compact stroller and it was so flimsy. I love this one and highly recommend it. So glad I purchased it and decided to spend the money.”" - Kyla C

""I've used 2 other travel prams previous to the skip and this is by far my favourite. great price, lightweight and sturdy. we took it to Bali and had no issues getting around. he slept a lot while we were over there, so could lay it back and have the full hood covering him so he didn't get sunburnt. It's very easy to push. the hood doesn't hit your hands when it's not being used like on the nano. I love how simple it is to fold.

""This stroller is everything I have ever wanted! You always hear people raving about uppababy and I wondered if it would live up to the hype. It 150% does. It handles like a dream. My old bulky stroller would randomly go sideways or get the wheels twisted where as you can push the minu with one finger! The material is high quality and soft but also easy to clean. The handles are comfortable and luxurious. One of my favorite parts about uppababy is that they have endless accessories to work with your stroller. I couldn’t be happier with this purchase!"" - Tes2590
