The cast of “Modern Family” is headed to Australia, thanks to a sweet deal that has the cast flying down under to film a new episode.

The Futon Critic” reports that Qantas will fly the cast and crew over in February, where the “Pritchett-Dunphy-Tucker” clan will film an episode over two weeks.

Other than the Australian vacation itself, the episode’s storyline has not yet been revealed.

“We loved the family vacation episodes we shot in Hawaii and Wyoming – this one is certainly our most ambitious yet,” co-creator Steve Levitan said. “We promise to feature a kangaroo, a koala and a boomerang. I’m sure there will be lots more, but so far that’s all we know about Australia – our American school system is a disaster.”

In other “Modern Family” news, “The Talk” co-host Aisha Tyler is set to guest star in an upcoming episode.

Per “Entertainment Weekly,” Tyler will play an old pal of Mitchell’s (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) who “runs a legal aid society where he gets a job.”

“Modern Family” airs Wednesdays at 9pm on ABC.
