School holidays in Sydney
Taronga Zoo is a great place to take the kids - open 365 days a year and home to some of the world's most fascinating species, it will keep you occupied for hours. Various shows take place throughout the day so you can learn more about the zoo's residents, as well as the opportunity to get a little closer by booking an animal encounter.
Keeping with the animal theme, a trip to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium should be on any family's to do list during the school holidays. Expect to see everything from sharks to stingrays, giving your children an educational day out during the Sydney school holidays.
It is worth noting that many attractions will offer school holiday deals, giving you and your family the chance to explore more of the city at a fraction of the cost.
A trip to the beach is sure to be popular with the kids during your holiday in Sydney. Bondi Beach is one of the city's most famous, so why not take your little ones for a surf lesson or perhaps a swim in the sea?
Manly is another option if you want some beach time during your break in Sydney. With many cafes and restaurants to try, make a day of it and give your children a school holiday to remember. Alternatively, pack a picnic and enjoy a leisurely afternoon in one of Manly's many parks or even the beach itself.
Of course, no trip to Sydney would be complete without visiting Sydney Opera House and the Harbour Bridge. Older kids might enjoy a behind the scenes tour of the Opera House, where they can learn more about the iconic building and its history.
Alternatively, sign yourselves up to do the Sydney Harbour BridgeClimb - an experience never to be forgotten! As you scale the structure to reach 134 metres above the harbour at Circular Quay, you will be rewarded with exceptional views and plenty of souvenir photographs to show your friends and family.
Sydney has plenty going on all year round and with school holiday offers to be taken advantage of, there has been no better time to see what sets this city apart from the rest.
