Family outing down under!

John Travolta and his family appeared to be enjoying their time in Australia this week in photos and videos shared by the star on his Instagram account.

In a rare snap with both of his children -- Ella, 19, and Benjamin, 8 -- the 65-year-old actor is all smiles as they hang out with a koala at Featherdale Wildlife Park. The actor wears a denim jacket and black t-shirt for the ultra-posed shot, while Ella opts for a black zip-up and Benjamin dons a fun tank top.

"At the @featherdalewildlifepark with the kids," Travolta captioned his post, which also included two videos.

In both of the videos that the actor shared alongside the family photo, he's seen dancing with other animals at the park: The first clip shows Travolta holding his phone up to a kangaroo while blasting the 1960 song Tie Me Kangaroo Down Sport by Rolf Harris as he sings along in an Australian accent; in the second, Travolta dances alongside a little crocodile being held by someone who works at Featherdale as See You Later Alligator by Bobby Charles plays in the background.

Travolta's followers were quick to share their love on the post, calling them a "beautiful family" and praising him for his "tireless efforts & concerns for causes."

The Featherdale Instagram account also shared the Travolta family photo on its account, writing, "Thanks for stopping by, @johntravolta and family! We are so happy you had such a great time visiting us!"

Travolta shares Ella and Benjamin with his wife of 28 years, Kelly Preston. They also shared another son, Jett, who died in 2009 at the age of 16.

It's unclear if Preston was on the trip to Australia with the rest of her family.
