Eating and Drinking

As a family I know you find getting food for the kids sometimes hard. You can bring a picnic lunch and have it on the waterfront boardwalk, or you can dine at Yot’s Cafe where they have wonderful meals for adults and a great kids menu. Kids can have a $10.00 meal deal and my kids loved theirs when we were there last.

    My two little pirates would love to run amok at the museum. We’re from WA but will in Sydney over Christmas, this would be an amazing addition to our trip! Any excuse for them to wear their eyepatches out in public.

    I have a little miss obsessed with Antarctic exploration. She turns on the ceiling fan to ‘train for the cold’.I think a visit to the Maritime Museum might just up the ante (and hopefully inject a bit of realism!)
