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 […]

The Beach Shed, Dee Why

The Beach Shed – Right on Dee Why Beach The Beach Shed is our local happy place.   It’s such a relaxed place with the best view and great coffee and food. I don’t think any overseas visitor has stayed with us without having a least one trip to the Beach Shed.    I really love […]

The Powerhouse Museum with Kids

The Powerhouse Museum with Young Kids   The Powerhouse Museum is a strange combination of exhibits and displays. It’s taken me a while to work out what the “ethos” of the Museum is. It has a bit of transport to it, then some space and then the high energy Wiggles Display.    If you’ve enjoyed […]

Visiting The Grounds at Alexandria with Kids

The Grounds at Alexandria with Kids Doing the Grounds at Alexandria with Kids is completely possible and it doesn’t need to be overwhelming. I love heading out there and even make sure to pop in for a visit every time I go to the airport.    The Grounds in Alexandria is actually family friendly. It […]

Fearnley Grounds Playground and Cycleway in Centennial Parklands 

Fearnley Grounds Playground and Cycleway in Centennial Parklands  Fearnley Grounds is a great space to spend a long morning or afternoon with the kids.

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 […]

Birkenhead Point Outlet 

Birkenhead Point Outlet  Birkenhead Point Outlet is a fantastic place to shop. You could spend all day there though so be careful of your feet and your wallet.   I love a good outlet shopping and this is one of the two good places I know of in Sydney (the other is DFO Homebush). Birkenhead […]

On Shore Cafe Brasserie, Dee Why 

Breakfasts in Dee Why: On Shore Cafe Brasserie After first visiting On Shore, for a take away coffee and finding it to be good, we had to check it out properly for a sit down breakfast.   There are a number of cafes and restaurants along the Strand and this was the first that we […]

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 […]
