In a post shared on her lifestyle blog The Kind Life,Clueless star Alicia Silverstone announced her plans to make the trip Down Under for a family holiday.

The post entitled I’m Heading to Australia called out to her fans and in particular her Australian readers for recommendations on everything from food, fun and tourist spots.

“I’m headed to Sydney in a couple weeks for vacation, finally! Yay!” she began.

“I’m so thrilled to check out the veg scene as well as adventure in/around the city and explore all the nature.”

The happy couple can’t wait to explore beautiful Australia.

And it seems that the blonde beauty and her musician husband, Chris Jarecki, also plan to hit the town for date nights, as the actress signed off her blog post with a call-out for Sydney-based babysitters.

“If you are a local Sydney kind lifer and happen to babysit or have children and know a great babysitter, leave a comment below as that would come in handy for a couple of occasions,” she wrote.

Alicia, who is an animal rights activist and proud vegan, made headlines when she announced that her son Bear Blu – who was just three-months-old at the time, was being fed on a strict vegan diet.

“Bear was grown on vegan food, and we’ll continue nourishing him with a healthy diet,” she says.

“He’ll be eating an organic, plant-based diet. I intend to take great care of his precious, new baby body, so I’m committed to giving him nothing but the purest and most healthy food possible.”

“We want to keep his immune system strong so that he’ll be super healthy, which is just one of the many reasons he’ll eat vegan.”

The star rose to fame when she starred in the 1995 teen comedy, Clueless.

Alicia isn’t the only celebrity mum to eliminate food groups from their children’s diets.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple was famously raised by her mum on a vegetarian diet, as was Bethenny Frankel’s daughter, Bryn.
