Travel: Australia - Sydney

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Travel: Australia - Sydney

I've just completed a section on Sydney in my travel blog http://ratherbeautifulworld.wordpress.com/. We were there last June.

I'd love to hear your comments on Sydney too.

Sydney Aquarium/ Sydney Tower + OZ Trek/ Hunter Valley/ Port Stephen Dolphin Watch Cruise/ 4WD Sand Boarding Tour.

Are the above interesting for a 9 y.o. active boy (who is more interested in getting onto the plane + visiting a hotel)?

Greatly appreciate your comments.

A trip to Blue Mountain to see the Three Sisters? I prefer Melbourne to Sydney.

Too bad your child is only 9yo, if he is 10 he can go climb sydney harbour bridge.

Wow, the climb seems very challenging. Will keep this for future. Thanks for the info.

actually not that challenging.

There are stairs and some short ladder, the rest is a slow walk up a gentle slope. View is fantastic !
