So, you have relatives visiting from another country for the first time, and you are planning to show them around the city. This is always a great opportunity for you to go out and stock up on some quality time with your family.
There are a variety of things to do that can cater to the young, the old, and the young at heart. Go ahead and hire a mini bus with a driver in Sydney, pack your things, and try these five fun family activities you and your loved ones could do in the capital of NSW.
1. Visit a wildlife park, zoo or farm
Australia’s wildlife is always fascinating. And your family could have their own wildlife encounters at the scattered zoos and farms around Sydney. Get to feed the animals native to this country and find out facts about their habitat with an up close and personal experience.
2. Go ice skating
Although there is really not much snow in Australia, they still have their share of good ice skating rinks around the city. Kids and adults alike would love to experience ice skating especially, during the Winterlight Festival wherein everyone can go ice skating outdoors.
3. Climb the Sydney harbour bridge
For the family that likes a little bit of adventure and excitement, the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb is open to everyone eight years and older. The Pylon Lookout is better for the entire family and also has a breathtaking view of the harbour.
4. Go to the beach
Sydney has a lot of beaches. Some that are a surfer’s delight and others more for those relaxing flat-water ocean laps. You and your family will definitely find the one that best suits your family bonding time.
Whichever you choose, remember the two reasons for planning this trip — to introduce your city to your family or relatives and to make up for lost time with them. You are in a city that is fun and family friendly. Take advantage of it.
