Some other ideas to keep the offspring entertained:

Take them to see an outdoor movie
Take them for an outdoor tree top adventure
Take them on a trail quest through Sydney
Take them to a fun public pool to cool off
Take them to Lake Parramatta for a bushwalk, picnic, swim and boat ride
Take them to an indoor play centre
Take them to a park with a cafe so that you can let them run free whilst you relax for a little bit

And if you are totally broke from too much Christmas shopping, why not check out one of these FREE activities that you can do with your kids.

Good luck and keep an eye out for our next article on events happening in January!
