Visa Possibility Question

I want to plan my upcoming vacations so need some advice.

What are the chances of getting visit visa of any Schengen country with spouse given the following profile:
Monthly Salary: PKR 100000+
Travel history: Schengen countries (Germany, France, Switzerland) alone and Malaysia, Thaliand with wife
Bank balance PKR 1500000 +
Working for more than 5 years in Pakistan, tax payer and filer. Parents in Pakistan but no immovable asset (house, plot etc)
I don't want to get a rejection so need opinion of the people who have seen cases.

If I have little possibility for Schengen visa, is there any chance for Australia or New Zealand.

Since travelling is expensive, I want to spend some time in my dream countries and don't want to visit Dubai etc this time.

Schengen Visa from Netherlands VAC Delhi

I applied for the schengen Visa from the netherlands VAC delhi on 10th March, till now the tracker shows that the application has been sent to the embassy for further processing.

I have a valid UK visa on my passport which i got in 1 day.

Along with my application and cover letter i submitted

travel insurance papers
Return flight ticket to Amsterdam and from London
Hostel booking in Netherlands, Berlin and Prague
In my cover letter i had mentioned my itiniary in which i mentioned italy and spain also but i didnt attach hostel booking for the same, although my financial papers show enough money using which i can easily book hostels, but i wanted to keep my itiniary open.
i attached my ticket to London from paris stating that i will be leaving the schengen region.
i have shown my 6 month bank account statements and investment details and property papers
My fathers sponsorship letter
bonafide student letter from college
