What people are saying

I am just loving your blog. 

I have two boys (four & three) and live in South West Sydney and are always trying to think of things to do with them, it’s such a struggle to find appropriate activities.

But 10mins on your site, I’ve already come across a week’s worth of activities! Thank you so much!

Just to let you know that I love your site, and think it’s an invaluable source of information. Visited numerous parks on your recommendation, and appreciate all the hard work you do to provide the information!

Myself and my four kids at the great cafe at Little Manly Cove after a morning swimming and playing in the rock pools. Happy memories of when the kids were younger!

About Seana

I arrived in Sydney with one busy toddler pretty confident I’d know all the fun stuff to do. After all, I’d lived here before for a few years, worked in TV and had a fab time.

So wrong!

Living in Sydney with kids is 100% different to living here when you’re young, free and single.

So I set about learning all the great spots to visit with my wild child. This involved many disasters when we turned up to do walks and visit parks without much information about them.

But 20 years and three more kids later, we don’t have disasters any more… and neither need you!

Let us show you the best of what’s on in Sydney and the best Sydney places that will suit your family’s ages, needs and interests.

I just wanted to thank you for the recommendation to go to Peats Bite!! 

It is the most wonderful place in Sydney!! 

I’m so glad your list of places didn’t just include the same old zoo, museums and boring parks! 

We went to Peats Bite yesterday for Father’s Day lunch and honestly we all woke up today feeling like we had been on a holiday!  It’s very very special. 

I look forward to more of your suggestions.

I rely on the internet a lot to figure out where to go, so I love all the lovely photos and details you put up on your site.Thanks for all your hard work.

I absolutely believe that family days out can be full of adventure and great experiences….  without spending a fortune.
