Everyone loves a good fairy tale, a fairy party, or even fairy bread, but what about secret fairy spots in Sydney?
Not sure what I mean? Well, for something a little different, Sydney Mums Group has done some research into all things fairy, across our city, and come up with the list below. You just have to check these fairy good places out with your kids!
You may have heard of neighbouring Shelly Beach in Manly, but have you heard of the historic Fairy Bower Rockpool? It was built in 1929 by local residents as saltwater bathing became popular along the coast.
The Pool is triangular in shape and the sculptures that line the rock edge are fairy-themed, known as The Sea Nymphs or The Oceanides.
The Sydney Crochet Club meets fortnightly to learn crochet, meet other Sydney mums, and have a good chat. Whether you're a complete beginner or a seasoned pro, everyone is welcome to come along!
The southern suburbs of Greater Sydney boast some beautiful beaches and one of the most popular, for those in the know, is Fairy Meadow Beach. It affords stunning views south to Wollongong, with views of the two light houses and harbour in the distance.
Located only 5kms from Wollongong city centre, and close by to the Wollongong Surf Leisure Resort, this beach is accessible for families. It's also a dog-friendly beach with Dog Time Share rules in play, so if you're planning a visit at the right time, bring your pet pooch (on-leash). There's also an off-leash dog beach area, south of the play equipment.
Southern Sydney is sure doing well when it comes to the fairy best natural attractions, and this one is especially for bushwalking families out there.
Fairy Bower Falls is a one-hour loop walk, starting at
Gambells Rest Picnic area (the Fairy Bower car park), in Bundanoon's Morton National Park. The walk is of medium/steep gradient, so come prepared with sturdy walking shoes, water and appropriate clothing for bushland. The walk offers beautiful waterfalls to admire, with the highlight being Tooths Lookout and Fairy Bower Waterfalls. Maybe this is where the Tooth Fairy lives!
Okay, so here's the one all you fairy fans have been waiting for. It's fairy central in the heart of Sydney's Inner West! I could just sit on Fairy & the Frog's webpage for hours, and listen to the whimsical old Hollywood tune. Check it out here and you'll see what I mean...
