7 Super Cool Indoor Activities your Kids will Love in Sydney, Australia

Sydney, Australia is renowned for being very family friendly. With beautiful sandy beaches, laid back vibes and some of the best playgrounds in the world, it's the perfect choice for an extended family break. However, with temperatures often exceeding 26 degrees, it's important to remember to keep little ones out of the sun between 11am-3pm. Don't fear though, I have lots of suggestions of where to visit when you need a break from the sunshine:-

1 - SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium

The aquarium in Sydney is lots of fun for little ones and includes Glass Bottom Boats, Jurassic Seas, a Shark Walk and a look inside the Great Barrier Reef. It's an attraction not to be missed.

2 - Madame Tussauds Sydney

We LOVE Madame Tussauds and had lots of fun visiting Madame Tussauds Blackpool & Madame Tussauds London. My kids would love to get up close to the the likes of Wolverine, Steve Irwin and Spiderman (& more) who are all available to pose for photos at Madame Tussauds Sydney.

3 - Visit the Cinema

There is no better way to cool off and take a break from the sun than taking a trip to the cinema and it's an activity we often enjoy together during our holidays. Head down to Campbelltown movies and check out Event Cinemas for the latest blockbusters - we recommend Finding Dory.

4 - Hard Rock Cafe

Older kids and teens will think you're the coolest parents alive if you take them to the Hard Rock Cafe for lunch. Kids can feast on hot dogs, burgers, coke floats and hot fudge sundaes whilst browsing the amazing memorabilia on display.

5 - Powerhouse Museum

The Powerhouse Musum is a museum of applied arts and sciences and loads of fun for kids. Little ones will love the Wiggles exhibition and Egyptian mummies where as older children will be inspired by the Hadron Collider exhibition and 'Meet the Mars Robots'.

7 - Sydney's Olympic Park Aquatic Centre

Part of Sydney's Olympic Park Aquatic Centre has been transformed into an epic water playground complete with slides, fountains, rapids and buckets. Kids will have lots of fun in this fantastic indoor water playground and it has to be the ULTIMATE way to cool off.

Let me know if you've ever travelled to Sydney and your suggestions for taking a break from the sun.
