So we pulled the kids all over Sydney and Melbourne during the holidays. We didn’t really plan much kid oriented activities – just shopping and some sight seeing. And did they get bored. I think there’s only so many Melbourne arcades a kid can look at. And it’s hard to motivate kids to walk somewhere when there isn’t an enjoyable end goal. Nup, no museum, zoo, It’s a Small World ride… I guess we could’ve done the Taronga and Melbourne Zoos or Luna Park, but us parents wanted to explore the shops and cafes that are unique to Sydney and Melbourne!
What brought the most joy on our trip? The hotel pool. An hour or so of splashing around in the hotel’s heated pool brought instant laughter, smiles and energy that definitely was missing when walking up and down Chapel or Smith Street.
I think our next holiday will have to be back to a South East Asian resort. They definitely love those the best 🙂
