Sydney - Top 3 Free Things to Do with Kids This Summer

The Rocks Discovery Museum
 
This is a free, family friendly museum which tells the story of The Rocks from pre-European days to the present.
 
Housed in a restored 1850s sandstone warehouse, the museum is home to a unique collection of images and archaeological artefacts all found in The Rocks – some of which you can even hold. The exhibits are filled with interactive fun, using touch screens, audio and visual elements to bring the history of the area alive.
 
 
You can learn about the area's traditional custodians, the establishment of the English colony and the time when sailors, whalers and traders made The Rocks their home; through to the 1970s union-led protests which preserved this unique part of Sydney for future generations to explore and enjoy.
 
From 8 -25 January 2018 kids can take part in the free school holiday program.

Kids Playground at Darling Quarter - Darling Harbour
 
Does your local playground have a 21-metre flying fox? Didn't think so! How about a water play area with pumps and water buckets? Thought not!
 
Darling Quarter's playground is considered one of Australia's best. Water games (great for keeping cool in summer), climbing ropes, swings, slides and flying foxes will keep toddlers to pre-teens entertained for hours. It's fun, thrilling and best of all free!

Walk Across the Sydney Harbour Bridge
 
 Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a bucket list event. But it’s very expensive and only available for over 8s. Did you know there is a pedestrian walkway on the eastern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge that offers some of the best views of Sydney Harbour ... and access to the walkway is completely free!
 
You can do your own "guided walk" across the bridge, stopping to admire the Opera House and Circular Quay on the way. The walk across the bridge should take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many times you stop to admire the harbour and take photos. By walking across the bridge from north to south, you enjoy the best views because you are walking towards the city, not away from it.
 
As you approach the southern side of the bridge, you'll notice the Pylon Lookout located in the south-east pylon. For a small admission fee you can go up to the top of the pylon and experience great views of the Opera House, the city skyline and Sydney Harbour.
