In an interview with the local Women’s Weekly in 2019, the couple explained why they loved spending time Down Under.
“Early January is bleak over here so it’s nice to go and have a bit of sun,” said Mr Tindall.
“I love the lifestyle of Australia and the ability to get up early, go on the beach – especially for the kids, taking them in the ocean is brilliant.
The popular equestrian has a special connection to Australia.
Princess Anne’s daughter actually met her husband, Mike Tindall, in Australia back in 2003.
“I just think the people over in Australia are so laid back and they have good banter.
“No one’s worried about talking to each other.
“It’s not a rushed lifestyle.
“I think it’s a great place and we enjoy it so much.”

Mrs Tindall, 40, has not retired yet and competed in the recent Nations Cup team.
Zara added: “Mia [her first daughter born in 2014] loves swimming.
“Of course, the climate allows you to be able to go swimming all day every day.”
“When we first took her to Australia she was 11 months old; we kickstarted her love of water.
“She swims twice a week at home with lessons,” said Mike.
“If she’s anywhere near a pool she’d be in there all day.
“And that came from Australia when we went for six weeks when she was three and stayed at a place that had a pool. It was all she wanted to do.”
Asked by the reporter whether she ever thought about moving to Australia, the Princess Royal’s daughter answered: “Probably not while I’m still competing.”
“It would be a little bit hard commuting.”
The British team recently achieved third place as Zara was partnering with Class Affair.
“But after that … yes, I think if an opportunity came up we’d definitely think about it.”
Mrs Tindall, 40, has not retired yet and competed in the Nations Cup team at the CHIO Aachen World Equestrian Festival in Germany in mid-September as reported by Horse and Hound.
The British team achieved third place as Zara was partnering with Gleadhill House Stud Ltd’s 12-year-old chestnut Class Affair.
