If you too are thinking of taking your little kids to this bustling metropolis, you are on a right page.
Sydney is unquestionably one of the most famous and most visited weekend gateways in the country. It sees a big herd of travelers from all across the country in school holidays. However, this should not refrain you to browse for some great deals for your Sydney vacation.
Here is an insider’s 3 most favorite family outing in Sydney.
Visit Circular Quay
Begin your Sydney tour’s first day by visiting Circular Quay. If you are thinking of booking a campervan rental Sydney, it is wise to choose a campsite in close vicinity of the city so it won’t take much time to make you reach the Quay. Park your van upon arrival and board on a big Manly ferry from Wharf3. Kids will love the ride!
Upon your arrival at Manly beach, keep an eye on your children and other members of family accompanying you as they are most likely to get excited and tempted to run off. Families with kids are recommended to head out to the spectacular Shelly Beach, which is safer for swimming activities for young toddlers. The spot also features a large grassy area, quite perfect for barbecuing.
Don’t miss out on visiting the Manly Sea Life Sanctuary. It’s a place where you will see some of the country’s most common marine species and you may learn how to preserve them. Those above 14 in age can go for an adventurous dive with Sharks. And little ones can enjoy watching the cute penguins at the same time.
Walk the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Also known as the coat-hanger by the locals of the town, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the most iconic landmark of Circular Quay. Here you have got two options to choose from – walk on a pedestrian path or rent a cycle to drive on the cycle route at the bottom of the bridge. However, it is best to climb the bridge instead of riding down the route along its bottom.
For toddlers of over 10 years in age and 1.2m height, those who are not afraid of heights, Bridge Climb Sydney is must-do thing. For the best views, book your tickets for the sunset time and don’t forget to carry your phone to take your selfie! Once you are back to ground, you can take your kids through the historic rocks area, provided they are a history-buff.
If you are not short on time, make your family and kids visit Bondi Beach in a campervan hire Sydney. It’s a great spot for swimming, surfing, eating out and shopping!
Hope these tips will help you make the most of your family-friendly trip to Sydney.
