I asked mums around Australia to share their favourite spots to take children. So, wherever you live and wherever you’re headed in Australia here are some great places to visit with your children.
visit Adelaide with Kirsty (Coffee, Cake and Sunday) and see the only pandas in Australia or touch the ice wall at the museum.
visit Brisbane with Cath (SquiggleMum) and ride the City Cat, visit the theme park worlds or explore local rainforests, bushland, mangroves or wetlands.
visit Canberra with Jane (Kidaddle) and enjoy the bush at Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve, discover science at Questacon or brave the hustle and bustle of the Old Bus Depot Markets.
visit my hometown Darwin and hand feed the fish, see some crocodiles or take a dip at Leanyer Water Park.
visit Melbourne with Nicole (Planning With Kids) and immerse your children in the arts in Federation Square, explore the St Kilda Precinct, discover farm life at Collingwood Children’s Farm or play in the Children’s Garden at the Royal Botanical Gardens.
visit Perth with Christie (Childhood 101) and go to the beach, wander around Fremantle or explore the Perth Zoo.
visit Sydney with Ramona (Learning Activities) and experience China Town, take a ferry ride on Sydney’s beautiful harbour or spend the day at Taronga Zoo.
