Mariah Carey is going Down Under — with her husband and twins in tow.

Carey, Nick Cannon, and dem babies arrived in Australia on Friday via a private jet and extravagant boat, but sailing around the Great Barrier Reef isn’t the only part of the plan.

Carey is set to launch her first Australian tour in 15 years, starting Jan. 1 on the Gold Coast. The last time the new American Idol judge performed on the island was in 1998 during her Butterfly album tour.

After enjoying a family-filled Christmas in Aspen, the mother of twins Monroe and Morrocan — aka Roc and Roe — seemed eager to start her journey, tweeting a picture of her departure on Thursday and saying:

Her hubby, Cannon, shared the excitement, posting on his blog:

“We’re on a jet flying across the Equator! Going from cold to hot! Aspen to Australia to bring in 2013 right! Check out my beautiful wife resting up!”
