Spring school holidays in Sydney

Spring is a delightful time to bring the whole family to Sydney, with plenty of things to do, attractions to explore and events to enjoy. Learn to surf at famous beaches, explore zoos and aquariums, visit amusement and theme parks, and discover more outdoor adventures.

The permanent Wild Planet exhibition at the Australia Museum, next to Hyde Park and a stroll from the city's main shopping area, is popular with kids. Interactive displays entertain hungry young minds, and blockbuster temporary exhibitions are drawcards for all the family.

Wild Life Sydney

Some of Sydney's best attractions are at Darling Harbour, including SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. Kids can also climb aboard a submarine at the Australian National Maritime Museum and see a movie on the world’s biggest cinema screen at IMAX Theatre.

For water activities, head for one of Sydney's gorgeous beaches including Bondi Beach and Manly Beach. Or go for a swim at an outdoor harbourside pool such as the Andrew Boy Charlton Pool, near the Art Gallery of NSW. Giant waterslides are at Wet 'n' Wild in Sydney's west, home to more adventures including Jetpack Adventures for kids as young as 10 and the TreeTop Adventure Park.

After a day of adventures, take a family trip to Sydney's last remaining drive-in theatre, Skyline Drive-In Blacktown, and watch the latest children's hit. Or visit the city centre, where the Sydney Opera House and other theatres put on special children's shows during school holidays.
