Easter Break in Sydney
Kids really love animals and in Sydney you’ll find plenty of opportunities to introduce them to amazing creatures from around the globe. Head to Taronga Zoo, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, all located by the harbour or a short travelling time away from the city centre.Further afield are Featherdale Wildlife Park, Symbio Wildlife Park and the Australian Reptile Park.If your kids prefer thrills and spills, take them on a high speed jet boat dash across the harbour (they must be at least 1.2m tall to ride), jump on a bike to cycle along Sydney Olympic Park’s fantastic bike trails or check out the flying trapeze, slides and water jets of the Darling Quarter Playground.
Head to Sydney city on Easter Monday for the Sydney Easter Parade beginning at 11.30am. Different Christian groups, ministries, and churches from various denominations take to the streets with giant inflatables, marching bands and entertainers. This Easter celebration has been going on for more than 20 years and journeys through Market, George and Elizabeth streets before finishing at Hyde Park.
