It’s not always easy to take kids on a city break, as no doubt, a lot of the attractions won’t appeal to them. However, Sydney is a great city break for families, as there are things for all ages to enjoy. Here are a few ideas for activities that kids will love.
- Beach hopping
Why go to a destination with only one beach, when you can visit Sydney which is close to dozens? Some of the most popular beaches to visit locally include:
- Bondi Beach
- Shelly Beach
- Manly Beach
- Bronte Beach
Not only can kids enjoy playing on the sand or swimming in the clear seas, these beaches are popular for activities such as snorkelling, surfing and much more.
- Boat trips
From Sydney Harbour, you can take a number of boat trips that show you the beauty of the area. One popular activity is whale watching Sydney, which generally runs from March to September, where you can see groups of whales migrating. If you’ve never seen this amazing creatures up close, this is an excellent way to do so, and kids will love seeing them swim alongside the boats.
- Sydney Tower Eye
The Sydney Tower Eye is the highest point above Sydney, so once you zip to the top, you can see for miles on clear days. Kids will love riding the escalator up high and walking around the 360-degree viewing platform, seeing the buildings below. Best of all, your ticket includes a trip to the 4D cinema experience, where kids can enjoy seeing the city from many different perspectives, from land to water, with amazing special effects.
- WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo
Australia is full of amazing wildlife, and if you can’t make it to the outback to see exotic creatures, consider visiting Sydney Zoo. Kids will love seeing Australian wildlife up close and learning about the diverse range of animals who live across the country. Not only is it a fun day out, it’s educational too.

Sydney is one of those cities where lots of people bring their kids, and many of the attractions are things that kids will be interested in. There tends to be a relaxed vibe in the city, which means kids are welcomed in many places, and you certainly won’t be the only tourists who bring the entire family.
