Walk with the animals, talk with the animals….

Sydney is an animal-lover’s dream, offering a long list of opportunities to get up close with furry, fluffy, and scaly wildlife.
The world-famous Taronga Zoo is a hotspot during the Sydney Easter school holiday period, and is an easy place to spend a full day wandering and exploring with the kids.
Similarly, Wildlife Sydney Zoo credits themselves as ‘Home of the Aussie Big Five’, and is the ideal place to introduce your children to some of Australia’s native fauna. Koalas, hopping kangaroos, and saltwater crocodiles all call this zoo home.
If your kids are fascinated by the deep blue sea, head to Sea Life Sydney Aquarium and enthral them with the 13,000 animals that call this location home.
The best part is, all of Sydney’s animal attractions are a stone’s throw from, or in, the city, so it makes for a fantastic family day out.

It’s showtime!

The annual Sydney Royal Easter Show is a must-visit this Easter school holidays, and continues to be a firm family favourite.
With animal enclosures, children’s rides, learning workshops, eateries, arts & crafts, and even fashion wares, head down to Sydney Showground at Sydney Olympic Park and celebrate Easter and the school holidays in style.
Just don’t forget the showbags – an important tradition of any day at the show!
