    I chose to write this small blog as I hope to give some valuable tips to those parents who wish to spend a lovely time in Sydney with their kids. Sydney is a top destination for families. These are some fun and constructive activities to consider if you are travelling to Sydney.

    The Powerhouse Museum
    See Science in action, by creating electricity or learning about chocolate's unusual properties at the Powerhouse Museum, great fun for all ages. All ages are well catered for here: 2-5 years old can play among pumpkins and mushrooms, chase fish in a digital pond or catch butterflies at The Magic Garden and under 8’s will enjoy the Kids Interactive Discovery Spaces – a range of games and activities designed to provide a variety of learning experiences to appeal to the interests and needs of young children. Storytelling in the Kings is an exciting new program interpreting the Museum collection through interactive storytelling. The storytelling takes place in The Kings, a recreation of a 1930s cinema and is on every weekend at 11:30. When you need a breath of fresh air, head to the Museum’s courtyard which has been transformed into a great outdoor playground, Cog’s Playground. It’s right next door to the café so mums can relax with a coffee while keeping an eye on the kids.


    Feed the Pelicans at Vera's Water Garden
    Visit Vera's Water Garden, every child likes to dangle their feet in water, run through water sprays and climb all over things, and Vera's Water Garden has all this and more. A popular kids activity is watching the pelicans being fed. The pelicans fly in at 3.30pm everyday to be fed, a feeding platform was built in 1996. There is a team of volunteers who feed the pelicans and help the injured birds. The pelicans suffer injuries from rubbish that is left behind such as hooks, fishing lines, plastic bags etc.


    Taronga Zoo
    Visit Taronga Zoo. Make sure you see the Chimpanzee Exhibit and Gorilla Forest, you can also get up close and personal with the cuddly Australian Animals. Taronga Zoo offers many fabulous opportunities to get close to the animals and find out more about how they live. Whether you attend one of the amazing free shows, drop in on a keeper talk or treat yourself to a unique animal encounter, you are sure to have a memorable experience. It’s open every day of the year, so why not bring your family for a Christmas adventure at Taronga Zoo.
