Finding good places to take kids in Sydney, where you can enjoy the experience and they do too, really depends on their age – be they pre-school, school age or teenagers.
Most kids enjoy video games and playing on their computer or games – and so if they are looking for new games to play – the best place to take them is to JB Hi Fi (www.jbhifi.com.au ) which is Australia’s biggest games retailer, also selling TV’s, phones, movies, music and a whole lot more. You will find their stores in Westfield shopping centres, but check on the website for store locations.
You will also find McDonalds, KFC, Hungry Jack’s/ Burger King, Pizza Hut stores all over Sydney – and even a local one, ‘Oporto’ – so there is no shortage of fast food options. There are also lots of movies and in school holidays – special kids shows, and other things happening.
If you want to get the kids away from their Gameboys, computers and fast food, here are some suggested places and ideas that might appeal.
The very best way to entertain kids is finding kids of the same age for them to play with – so finding places where there are other kids of their same age is the challenge.
Kids also like doing new things that are involving – and you will also enjoy it more too if you are involved with them – so buy a ball – and find a park where the kids can kick it around, or a bat and ball – or buy both, so that you can vary the activities.
