Summer Bay, Home & Away – Sydney – Travelling with Kids

On one of our trips to Sydney last year, we had a free day to fill in and thought we would go for a drive to Palm Beach which is where Home & Away is filmed (fictitiously named Summer Bay) on the northern beaches of Sydney. If you don’t have enough time to do your own Home and Away Tour independently, there’s plenty of other things to do in Sydney if you only have a short period of time. (more…)

Australia Day Weekend in Sydney – Family Travel Blog – Travelling With Kids

We thought it was about time we returned to Sydney as a family to visit some friends that we met while we were living there from 2010 – 2012. We made some wonderful friends while we were there and many have come to Melbourne to visit us. We love to see them and show them around our wonderful home town but we are especially excited to be returning as a family to check out all the old haunts!

24 Hours in Sydney with a 7 Year Old

Over the weekend Keira & I had a quick snappy visit to Sydney to visit Keira’s friend Bella. We flew in at 8.20pm and flew out next day at 5.40pm. We departed from Melbourne’s second airport, Avalon. Avalon Airport is approximately 40mins from the CBD towards Geelong. The airport services between 4-5 flights a day but only runs between Melbourne and Sydney. I am unsure why the airport only services Sydney. We spent the last day at Darling Harbour experiencing the kids friendly activities.  (more…)
