Getting the Kids Outdoors

Posted 2015-02-25 by Michael Sfollow
Getting the kids outside for a dose of Vitamin D and some high-energy fun will keep them active and entertained for hours. If you live in NSW or need a family getaway , here are some of the best outdoor activities for your kids (or yourself!) to try:

Go Karting is a great way to let your kids run wild and have fun, all while remaining supervised by attendees so you can relax. The easy, medium to hard tracks are suited for all, aged three to ninety, so everyone is able to choose their track and experience the thrill of race driving. If you’d prefer to sit back and relax, enjoy the calm and quiet in some of the State’s best go-karting locations, including Newcastle, Eastern Creek, Picton and Minto.

Mini Golfing is made for family fun! Full of water obstacles and novelty features, a round of putt putt is a great activity for all times of the day. Book in a time after dinner or an early morning round to keep the kids engaged and interested. There are various courses scattered throughout NSW, including Illawarra, Campbelltown, Jamison, Batemans Bay and Sutherland. The surprising challenges and team activities will forge healthy competition and bonding between those of all ages.

Book a day pass to some of the theme parks in NSW, including Magic Mountain in Merimbula, Jamberoo nearby Kiama and Wet’N’Wild in Blacktown. Set amongst the tranquil bushlands of the far South Coast , Magic Mountain will keep the kids entertained from dusk till dawn with a range of activities including grand-prix racing cars, toboggan, water slides, roller coaster, carpet slide, jumping castle and mini golf. Jamberoo offers similar activities in the South Coast bushland while Wet’N’Wild is the perfect Summer weekend or Easter break getaway. Opt for their “Red Hot One Day” special and take the whole family along for some of the best rides in Australia.

For an animal adventure, visit the iconic Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Catch a ferry from Circular Quay and look out over the Harbour as a cable car takes you up to the zoo. Your kids will be able to get up close with the animals and also learn about different ecologies and species’. Catch a famous bird show and sit out at one of vantage points spread across the zoo to capture the beauty of the Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge. For a cuddle with some nursery and native animals, take the kids to Macadamia Castle in Ballina. You’ll be able to try some of the local nuts and coffee in the area while the kids view a reptile display, play a round of mini-golf and explore the playgrounds through the park.


With a backyard full of diverse activities, keeping your children entertained during the weekends and school holiday breaks is easy in NSW! Keep them active and engaged by the world around them as you venture out to explore the outdoors without even needing to book a flight abroad.
