Look out, Australia: the Bryans are coming for you! And the land down under may never be the same.

Luke Bryan, his wife Caroline and his two sons Bo and Tate boarded a transcontinental flight on March 11 and are currently en route to Oz, one of the greatest destinations in the entire world, in our humble opinion.

And, as usual, Caroline has already started documenting the trip, and for that blessing we will be eternally grateful.

“Ready or not … here we come, Australia,” she captioned the first photo. “Tate just asked if we could play hide and go seek on the plane. I apologize … in advance … to everyone on this plane. #17hours. Kris, Jordan and Til please get here!!!!” Kris, Jordan and Til are Luke’s two nieces and his nephew. The latter, who is a teenager, lives with Luke’s brood.

So clearly it’s going to be a huge family affair, and with good reason, because this trip is a big, big deal for Luke.

The superstar has never played a show in Australia—until now. On March 16, he’ll play the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney, New South Wales followed by the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Victoria.

Dustin Lynch will join Luke as a special guest on both tour dates.

It is going to be an amazing and epic adventure for Luke and his family, and a much deserved change of scenery for the country star, who’s brand-new role as an “American Idol” judge kicked off March 11 when the new season premiered on ABC with pre-taped episodes.

We wonder what they’ll do first? Hopefully hug a koala the second they land, and then get a meat pie!

We sure hope that Luke and Caroline continue to post photos.

“American Idol’s” second episode airs tonight, March 12 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

We are loving this new judges’ panel. Luke and his co-pilots Lionel Richie and Katy Perry seems as if they’ve all known each other for years. And this season has so much heart you might need to keep a box of tissues handy!
