Must Do

Fun for kids

Monster Skatepark, Sydney Olympic Park

There’s entertainment galore to keep the kids active over winter in Western Sydney, with everything from sheep shearing and tractor rides to sandpits, slides and cycle ways. At Calmsley Hill City Farm, city kids can meet the new season’s babies - lambs, kid goats, ducklings and chicks - see cows being milked and pat the farm animals. At child-friendly Featherdale Wildlife Park, they can hand feed a kangaroo, meet koalas or even wrap themselves in a snake.

An authentic sheep farm experience awaits at Tobruk Sheep Station, where visitors can watch sheep dogs in action, eat damper, drink billy tea and stand by for a sheep-shearing demonstration.

Sydney Olympic Park is a great kids’ zone at any time of the year, with a long list of fun-packed action for all ages. The winter school holiday program offers children who are sporty, creative and/or adventurous plenty of choice; discover wetlands and woodlands, ponder the striking outdoor sculptures or follow a clue trail to solve a hidden message. With 35km of cycle ways, everyone will find their favourite. The Children’s Loop is perfect for little riders while older kids can explore the longer routes. At the Monster Skatepark, scooter riders and skaters can brush up on their skills – and etiquette – on transition ramps, box jumps and rails in a safe environment.

More roller skating and roller sports can be enjoyed at Penrith’s Maximum Skating, an international-sized venue made for fun. For something more unusual, head to Penrith’s Aqua Golf, where hitting golf balls into Peachtree Lake will keep the family entertained for the day.

Watch a film from the comfort of your car or under the stars in a deck chair at the nostalgic Blacktown Skyline Drive In Cinema. The 1960s-style retro diner tempts movie-goers with staples such as hotdogs, burgers, malt shakes and banana splits.
