Before you head overseas, ensure you are getting the best exchange rates to make your money go further whilst you travel. If you are visiting from the UK for example, check the GBP to AUD conversion rates online prior to arriving in Australia.
When you're with the kids, finding the best way to get around helps make your trip a lot easier. Some families like to use public transport, and you're in luck when you're in Sydney. There's the suburban rail, light rail, buses, and ferries. In 2019, there will even be a new Sydney Metro. However, if you find public transport difficult to handle, which it can be with particularly young children, Bayswater Car Rental gives you an easy option to hire a car.
You can also walk around, enjoy the beautiful sights and fresh air, especially for short distances
Find Family-friendly Places to Eat
Keeping everyone fuelled up and full of energy is essential for any family trip. If you want to avoid complaining during your time in Sydney, make sure you know where you can eat as a family. Of course, there are always the standard fast food options, but if you want something a better, there's much more out there. Some of the best-rated family restaurants include Farmhouse Kings Cross, Friggitoria, and Thai Pothong. You'll find a diverse selection of restaurants in Sydney, so there's something for everyone.
Fun Things to Do
There's plenty for families to do in and around Sydney, and you shouldn't find yourselves getting bored. If your family likes amusement parks, Luna Park is a great choice for a day (or just an afternoon) of fun. Families who like to learn about history might like to try a ferry trip to Cockatoo Island. The prison buildings there are now a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you can take a tour to learn about how they were used in the 19th century.
Obviously when you are in Sydney, you won’t be spending your time indoor, especially in summer! There are a couple of fantastic walks such as the Bondi to Bronte coastal walk which is an excellent activity for active families, providing some amazing coastal views. Stopping for a picnic is a great idea if you're a family that likes to take things slowly, and the Royal Botanic Gardens is the perfect place..
Enjoy a family trip to Sydney by finding the things that you like to do. There's lots on offer for everyone.
