Sydney Tour Ideas For Big Families
No mater what your family is interested in, Sydney is sure to have something on offer to keep everybody interested and fully entertained. From family friendly shows, educational museum exhibits, sporting events to great wildlife options, Sydney is just as much of a family’s playground as it is for single people’s haven. Check out the following activities to decide which best suits your family’s budgets, preferences and other touring requirements.
Getting close with nature and the animals
With a wide array of open green areas, Sydney is a great city for family activities of all types. There are plenty of activities, attractions and tours that can be experienced in these open green areas. This makes Sydney a place with plenty of places to get close and personal with all kinds of wildlife and best of all, in their natural habitats. For aquatic wildlife, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium are an ideal option for a great family day out. Taronga Zoo is another great place to check out as it has an impressive array of wildlife in addition to fantastic views over the city. Wild Life Sydney Zoo is centrally located in Darling Harbour, meaning that it is quite easy and convenient to tour while visiting Sydney.
Climb Sydney’s iconic landmark
In Sydney, there is an iconic landmark to climb for the whole family. BridgeClimb Sydney offers the best chance for a big family to scale the Harbour Bridge. This offers a breathtaking bird’s view of Sydney harbour and the areas around it. If looking for 360-degree Sydney city views, then you and your family should go on top of the Sydney Tower Eye. While here, spoil your family by dining in the revolving restaurant, 360 Bar and Dining Room, up at Sydney Tower Eye.
Try the family activities at Australian National Maritime Museum
These family activities are normally arranged on Sundays. Be sure to pose with your favourite celebrities at Madame Tussauds. Keep the whole family active by warming up with a cup of coffee and then taking part in family fun activities at Darling Quarter’s large and free playground.
Powerhouse Museum tours
This is a perfect place to spend with your family, particularly during the rainy season. Winter family exhibitions here include Game Masters where more than a hundred playable games can be opted for, Wiggles Exhibition or the Oopsatoreum to have a look at modern and historic inventions.
Moore Park Entertainment Quarter
Another place to visit during the rainy season is the Moore Park Entertainment Quarter, where you and the family can catch a film at the cinema or the kids can run free at laser tag. You can also take part in bowling with the whole family while here. Sport loving families will love the different sporting activities that regularly happen or are arranged at Moore Park or the ANZ Stadium.
Visit the Sydney Opera House or Sydney IMAX Theatre
Sydney visitors who come here for the first time are advised to rely on airport transfer services in order to get to these hotels quickly, comfortably and safely. There are a number of shows shown here, especially during the school holidays. Ignite your virtual senses at Sydney IMAX theatre. This theatre has one of the largest screens around the world.
Take advantage of the fairly priced airport transfer services to reach your hotel from the Sydney Airport and start exploring the city of Sydney with your family. Because you will be travelling as a big family, you should also get a minibus hire to help you get around as getting more than one taxi at every stop you make will eventually cost more than booking a minibus for the day.
