Take a stroll along the Darling Harbor. This is a place to have some fun. Not only do you get to look at the beautiful ocean, but the Darling Harbour has a ton to do. Consisting of exotic arts, culture and cuisine. Seeing the Luminous at night is gorgeous. It is the largest interactive light installation in the world.

Enjoy The Taronga Zoo. The Taronga Zoo is a great zoo that consists of a ton of awesome, exotic animals and a great way to spend the day with the family.

Spend a fun day at Luna Park Sydney. This is a good old fashioned Amusement Park. Filled with a ton of games, roller coasters, and just pure fun.

Visit the Sea Life Sydney Aquarium. If you didn’t get enough of the awesome Australian animals at the Zoo, the aquarium should be your next stop. You get a whole new world of animals from the under waters of Sydney Australia.

Go to the Wonderland Sydney. Another amusement park. Who can’t have enough fun?. Why not explore all the Amusement Parks.

Spend a day laying out, surfing, or just having fun at the Bondi Beach. You won’t regret it, it’s not only gorgeous but you’ll have a ton of fun while just hanging out with friends or family.

See a football game at the Allianz Stadium. Who doesn’t love to watch a football game. You can get a feel of the culture at a football game.

Spend a fun day the Manly Waterworks. A water park that is awesome and will be a great way to spend a hot day in Sydney Australia.

See a play at the State Theatre. This theatre is awesome and is sure to put on a GREAT show. If you’re interested in seeing some of the actors in their home country in the USA, make sure you look into an  ESTA (the Electronic System for Travel Authorization), which is now a requirement for all travelers from Visa Waiver Countries, including Australia.

These things are all part of a fun-filled agenda to spend in Sydney. With these fun family ideas, there is no doubt you will have the time of your life.
