Getting out and about in our little corner of the world looks a bit like this…
1. The Australian Museum, followed by a quick lunch at Miss Chu
On a rainy day you will find us at the Australian Museum, on the corner of College & William Streets, Sydney.
Discoveries include worldwide nature and cultures.
There is something for every age. Each time we visit the exhibits are a little different.
Level 2 interactive kids area is great for toddlers. The equipment is thoughtfully set up to engage children in activities for a wide range of ages.

Busy morning…. Me Hungry!…..
Traditional Vietnamese dumplings, spring rolls and pork buns… Super Yum!
The sidewalk seating is quaint, pull up a milk crate to perch on for lunch.
This is the hand of 4 year old Lola… she ordered herself Peeking Duck Pancakes and would not share a single bite with Mumma. Girl has taste!
2. Rose Bay
Head on over to Rose Bay .
The put.put.put sound of a propeller engine is like no other.
A sputtering cough gets the turbines started, as the road runner feet of the sea plane ripple up and down, then all of a sudden…. there is momentum:
across the bobbing Sydney Harbour, then up, up, up into the sky.
The kids love watching the Sea Planes taking off and landing.
We watch from the foreshore as a windy Saturday becomes a sight seers delight.
Whether it is skimming rocks, going back to back on the toddler swing or watching a kite overhead, Rose Bay has something for everyone. Here there are picnics, birthdays, a basketball court, tennis courts, football field and a nice little hill for youngsters learning to scoot or ride in the sun.
Lyne Park is equipped with a make shift Pirate Ship, sand pit, and primary school aged activities including a flying fox and over sized pyramid climbing gym.
Winter doesnt stop our sand play. Skimming rocks across the water brings smiles and cheer.
New South Head Road, Rose Bay
Parking – near Catalina Restaurant and Ferry Wharf or Rose Bay Tennis Courts.
3. Watsons Bay – Fish n Chips & Harbour Sunset
World renowned Fish ‘n’ Chips with postcard sunset backdrop. It feels like a holiday, yet we are so close to the city.
Kids entertainers are a regular feature. We love the Kids Eat Free Sunday night which starts at 5pm. There is life to this place since the renovation. They ‘get it’ when it comes to kids.
The vibe and music have funk, and the food is good too.
Nearby there is a play park for children which is fenced, huge open reserve ‘Robertson Park’ for take out fish and chips and across the park is the Watsons Bay Library and Tea Gardens, great for mid week Rhyme Time with the toddlers.
After the early dinner, a short walk along the Watsons Bay foreshore takes you into a quaint residential area which leads to Camp Cove.
Camp Cove is a sheltered Harbour beach, with a boardwalk and little canteen. A great spot for locals and in-the-know visitors. A paddle in the calm water is Summer lov’n.
Parking – Watsons Bay Boutique Hotel, within, opposite & Cliff Street.
