Favorite Kid-Friendly Activities in Sydney
Written by Michelle Duffy of Wandermom.com for Ciao Bambino.
Sydney is a truly enjoyable place to visit. From the sweeping views of the famous harbor with the iconic Opera House on show to the many great restaurants, a long list of fun family activities and—my favorite—varied and excellent beaches. There is something for everyone in your family.
Although Sydney may seem too far away, you'll be surprised at how easy it is to take a direct flight from Los Angeles or San Francisco. Flights leave late at night and, both times I've been to Australia, this meant that my children slept for most of the flight and didn't suffer too much with jet-lag.
Note: Be sure to read the Day Notes for the kid-friendly details on recommended attractions.
