Keep the kids and adults entertained these school holidays with some of Sydney’s best family-friendly activities.
Learn the secrets of Sydney’s most iconic landmark, see Frank Woodley in concert at his kid-friendly, laugh-out-loud best, and enjoy a delicious lunch at the Opera Bar. With only eight performance days, this one’s sure to sell out quickly so we recommend buying your tickets well in advance.
Dreamworks, the studio behind Shrek and Kung Fu Panda, have done it again with their newest venture. The whole family will laugh along together at this animated tale of two pranksters hypnotising their principal into thinking he’s a superhero named Captain Underpants. This one will be screening throughout the school holidays in cinemas around the city so pick the time and place that suits you best.
Proving Sydney Fringe Festival can do family friendly, this big event will pair stripy-socked singing sensation Lah-Lah with some of Sydney’s best young musical talent. Be prepared to sing, dance and feel impressed by pint-sized violinists.
Australia’s favourite art award is perfect for older kids and creative types. Stroll through the gallery, seeing which faces you recognise and – if you visit before October 3 - vote for your favourite to help determine the People’s Choice Award.
Go on an after-dark tour of the Royal Botanic Gardens on October 6 and spot all kinds of nocturnal mammals from Microbats to Tawny Frogmouths and Golden Orb spiders. You’ll also get the chance to appreciate the lights of the famous Sydney Harbour.
