As last night's episode demonstrated, Australia is an ideal destination for families of all shapes and sizes, with activities and sights that everyone can enjoy.

Here's what the cast had to say about their trip:

"You have genetically superior people here - most beautiful people on earth." - Ty Burrell

"My God, the best flight I have ever had in my life, it really was. That big double decker airplane was just amazing!" - Ed O'Neill, referring to the A380.

"It's been nice to get up close and personal with the Sydney Opera House, we're seeing all the great places. I'm excited to see everything here." Rico Rodriguez

"I went surfing in Bondi, I went scuba diving with I want to meet some wildlife like koalas and kangaroos." Nolan Gould

The television family's vacation was a result of an exclusive partnership between Qantas Airways, Twentieth Century Fox Television and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products. Qantas, Australia's national carrier, flew the cast and crew from Los Angeles in February as the Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker clan took a vacation down under.

Lauded for revitalizing the television sitcom, "Modern Family" is one of the largest critical and commercial hits of the past decade. The recipient of four consecutive Emmy Awards for Outstanding Comedy Series and a Golden Globe Award for Best Comedy Television Series, "Modern Family" is ABC Television Network's top-rated comedy series.

The entire "Modern Family" cast, including, Ed O'Neill (Jay), Julie Bowen (Claire), Ty Burrell (Phil), Sofa Vergara (Gloria), Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell), Eric Stonestreet (Cameron), Sarah Hyland (Haley), Nolan Gould (Luke), Ariel Winter (Alex), Rico Rodriguez (Manny) and Aubrey Anderson-Emmons (Lily) joined co-creator and executive producer Steven Levitan for the visit to Australia.

The partnership between Qantas and Twentieth Century Fox Television's "Modern Family" and Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products follows the airline's support in 2013 for a visit by The Ellen DeGeneres Show, which provided a 22 per cent increase in inbound flights to New South Wales alone, as well as overall boost in destination awareness for Australia.

The series is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television in association with Picador Productions and Steven Levitan Prods. Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd are the creators/executive producers. Danny Zuker, Dan O'Shannon, Bill Wrubel, Paul Corrigan, Brad Walsh, Abraham Higginbotham, Jeffrey Richman and Jeff Morton also serve as executive producers.

Qantas is one of the world's longest-established airlines. Qantas offers the most non-stop flights from the United States to Australia with 38 flights per week, including on its flagship Airbus A380 aircraft, it is the leading carrier with the most non-stop flights between Australia and the United States.
