Day trip to the beach
Bondi Beach is one of Sydney's most popular beaches so getting there by public transport is the way to go. Use the Family Funday Sunday ticket and take the kids for a swim followed by kite flying and fish'n chips. The Bondi to Coogee Coastal Walk is just about right for kids with plenty of views and stops along the way. Tamarama Beach is perfect for an ice-cream stop.
Family day out in Sydney's east
Using public transport to get to Sydney's eastern suburbs won't limit your choices of things to do. Use the Family Funday Sunday ticket for just $2.50 per person to enjoy a fun day out with unlimited travel on Sydney's buses, trains, ferries and light rail every Sunday.
Head to Bondi Junction from the city centre and, if you're travelling with young teenagers, be prepared to spend some time checking out the very cool shops at Westfield Bondi Junction.
From there you can head in all directions. If you want to take the kids to the beach, Bondi, Bronte, Clovelly and Coogee are all great beaches with pools and picnic areas. Fancy introducing the kids to horse riding? Take advantage of the proximity to the city centre of Centennial Parklands Equestrian Centre which has a range of pony rides for young children. It's also perfect for picnics, walks and feeding ducks at the duck pond.
