What is there to do?

When you think of Sydney, you can't go past those iconic white sails sticking out in front of the sparkling blue harbour background.

That's right - the iconic Sydney Opera House. Known of course for its incredible location, beautiful restaurants and cultural performances, and a must-do tourist spot when visiting the city.

But don't think it's all for adults! Sydney Opera House offer various tours across the year which are specially designed for kids. These tours often take kids behind the sails and lets them experience what goes on leading up to one of their famous productions.

They also hold special kids performances which involve famous kids fairytales, or allow the kids to immerse themselves in Creative Play. Musicals, dances, storytelling and kids fun, these performances change across the year so you can always go back and see something new. 

These are all part of their Kids At The House events, which offer specific performances for different ages, ranging from 2 to 12, so you can be sure you get an age-appropriate event for your children. 

During school holidays, they also offer The Junior Lunch at their family friendly restaurants. So you can explore, learn, be entertained, play and then eat! All that creativity would work up an appetite! 

It's a great way to show the iconic and cultural Sydney Opera House to the kids, where they may have not thought there would be something for them. Of course there is! It's Sydney - and they love to accommodate EVERYONE!

Happy sailing!
