Taking the Ferry to Watsons Bay – A Sydney Must

The Ferry to Watsons Bay  If you’re visiting Sydney for more than two days, you have to take a ferry from the City or Manly to Watson’s Bay. If you live in Sydney and you haven’t done the ferry to Watsons Bay yet you are crazy.   It is one of those iconic trips that […]

Sydney Coastal Walks with Kids

Forty Baskets Beach Walk With Kids

Middle Harbour Reserve to Forty Baskets Beach – The Coastal Walk with Kids   We visited Middle Harbour Reserve primarily for the playground and discovered its actually a really cool place.

Sydney Coastal Walks with Kids - The Fairfax Walk in North Head

The Fairfax Walk, North Head Manly

Fairfax Walk on North Head, Manly – Get the Kids out the house in winter   Isn’t it great to live in a City where we can still spend time outdoors even though its winter. I am constantly surprised by how warm it can be in Sydney in Winter. It is magic!   This winter […]

Golden Jubilee Field, Wahroonga 

Golden Jubilee Field and Jubes Mountain Bike Park, Wahroonga  The Golden Jubilee Field in Wahroonga is perfect for kids learning to ride a bike or a scooter. There are two great aspects to these Fields. First is the big path to cycle around far away from the roads and big sweeping bush land views. Second is […]

Passmore Reserve, A popular North Manly Playground

Passmore Reserve Playground, North Manly  Passmore Reserve in North Manly has been around for 17 years and is a favourite of many Northern Beaches mums but it is very well hidden.     If you weren’t told about it or have a husband who plays golf you would probably not know that it exists.    I […]

Fearnley Grounds Playground and Cycleway in Centennial Parklands

McKell Park Playground, Brooklyn 

McKell Park  Discovering McKell Park Playground in Brooklyn is another example of us getting lost. It’s actually embarrassing how silly I was this time. However all is well that ends well and I’m glad we stumbled on this little gem!   We set out North of Sydney to visit Brooklyn to feed ducks and didn’t see […]

Wheeler Park Playground, Narrabeen Lakes, Narrabeen

Wheeler Park Playground Wheeler Park is a little playground, fully enclosed and shade overlooking the Narrabeen Lakes.

Parsley Bay, Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River 

Parsley Bay, Brooklyn on the Hawkesbury River  Cool winter weather and a somewhat sickly baby made us venture out of Sydney to Parsley Bay, Brooklyn. We wanted to go somewhere quiet to a place where we could picnic and the kids could run off some energy with a scenic backdrop without making any other kids […]
