Although some know Sydney as a place that is perfect for an adrenaline adventure, others as a place where one can enjoy a great nightlife, many are unaware that it is primarily a place to visit with your family. Here, there are many great activities that can really bring you all closer together as well as provide many hours of fun. With this in mind, here are some ideas of places that you need to visit with your family, on your next vacation to Sydney.
Going on a vacation with your kids, should always have two major goals. First one is for them to enjoy this visit while the second one is that they learn something. We cannot stress out just how important it is for children (especially from urban environments) to learn something about our planet’s wildlife, which is why it is a great idea to visit Taronga Zoo. Even though there is a discount for kids, major saving can be made by simply purchasing a family pass.
Originally from London, Sydney branch of Madam Tussauds wax museum is one of the most famous in the world. Just think about it, what could be more fun for your family, that to hang out and take pictures with some of your favorite celebrities. Here, you will have a choice of seeing Barak Obama, Ryan Gosling, as well as Taylor swift. Or, being that you are in Sydney, you could spend some time with Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine, Nicole Kidman or even deceased but never forgotten Heath Ledger.
Now, as we already mentioned, this visit needs to have a didactic character as well. One of the greatest ways to achieve this on a family vacation is to take your kids to The Rocks. This area of Sydney bears great historical significance for the city. This caused it to keep some of that appeal, so that it could testify of what Sydney was like in the past. Here, you have many gift shops, The Discovery Museum as well as famous Foodies Market.
Being a coastal city, it comes as no surprise that Sydney beaches are amongst its greatest treasures. While you can go swimming or even try to teach your kids how to surf, it is always a great idea to go on a great cycling trip from Cogee to Bondi beach. Unfortunately, this can sometimes turn out to be too long of a ride for inexperienced cyclists, which is why it is highly advisable that you get some electric bikes for this endeavor.
Once you get tired of all that commotion of the urban Sydney, you can always take your family and go for a hike, or how Australians like to say bushwalk in Blue Mountains. Here you have many inns in which you can rest, as well as numerous already established hiking tracks. The first thing you need to have in mind when going with your family into wilderness is their safety, which is why straying off the path is not advised.

Now if you are up for something daring and exciting, Sydney Tower Eye and its Skywalk might be worth paying a visit. The view from there is absolutely breathtaking. Not only can you see the entire city beneath you, but this image is something that you will never be able to forget. You simply cannot afford to miss out on such a family memory.
As you can see, for those planning an ideal family vacation, Sydney should assume a high place on your list. Unfortunately, any list would be too short to encompass everything there is to see in Sydney and the only way to make up for this downside, would be for you to go and see for yourself. Have fun!
