At Oz Trampolines, we’re all about kids having fun. And research tells us that fun is serious business for kids. Playtime helps young children learn to solve problems, get along with others, express their creativity and develop their physical dexterity and language skills. It is through ‘fun’ that children experience the joy of learning.
A trampoline at home will have a large part of the fun covered, but what about when you’re on the road? How do you ensure your kids still experience fun when they’re visiting a new city or exploring a new town?
Our Kid Friendly Australia Series offers the ultimate guide to kid friendly restaurants, entertainment and activities across Australia’s capital cities. It ensures that no matter where you go, the fun continues and your children keep learning. By familiarising yourself with the happiest places for kids in Australia, every family trip will be one to remember. Sounds good, right?
To kick things off, let’s start with Sydney…
Sydney is a city that has a lot to offer. Convenience is king, and whether you’re hopping on public transport or navigating the city by car, Sydney is an easy place to get around. The weather is great, the scenery spectacular, the food fresh and the people friendly. And when it comes to kids, there’s plenty of action for every age.

Finding things to do with kids in Sydney
How lucky we are to live in an age when finding out what’s happening in your area is as easy as a quick Google search. Once upon a time, parents were clutching at straws to find things to entertain young kids still at home or older kids during school holidays, but today, with sites such as Weekend Notes, finding long lists of daily fun is just a click away.
Weekend Notes offers a huge range of activities and ideas for kids in and around Sydney, suggesting activities such as:
As well as simple suggestions, it also guides you to whole-day fun at places such as the Sydney Entertainment Quarter, home to an indoor play centre, an outdoor playground, a plaster painting studio, jumping castles, bungy trampolines and more. Other favourites include Taronga Zoo, Darling Harbour’s Sydney Aquarium and Wildlife Park, and The Entrance, where you can visit Vera’s Water Garden, feed pelicans, play at Memorial Park or do a spot of shopping.
With sites like Weekend Notes, there’s no reason why kids should ever be bored in the holidays or when visiting Sydney. There’s so much fun to be had and that makes us excited at Oz Trampolines. We believe fun is the most important part of learning, and believe family fun not only brings enjoyment, but better health, better bonding experiences, and valuable life skills. This can be achieved both on the trampoline and out and about exploring life. Go experience the best of Sydney with your kids!
Enjoying Sydney’s dining scene, even when kids are in tow
Can you think back to a time when drinking a coffee, tucking into a sandwich or delving into some dinner was actually enjoyable and relaxing? Chances are you’re being taken back to a time before kids were on the scene, a time when you weren’t being spit up on, cleaning up spills, chopping up food and constantly saying “sush” to overactive and overly excited little ones.
Thankfully, websites such as Hey Bambini can make dining out enjoyable once again by guiding you to the most family-friendly cafe’s and restaurants in Sydney. Simply select the area of Sydney you’ll be dining in (North, South, East or West) and Hey Bambini will lead you to the very best baby and kid friendly cafes and restaurants, places where kids are encouraged to be kids, where kids are constantly entertained, and where mums and dads sit with relaxed smiles knowing their kids are having so much fun.
If you find a cafe you love that’s not on the list, you can even add it to make other people aware!
