Easter School Holidays in Sydney

There is nowhere better than Sydney when the Easter school holiday arrives. With an abundance of activities, many of which cost nothing, you and your kids can enjoy the great outdoors, meet some amazing animals or learn something at a museum. Boredom is not an option this Easter if you live in or around Sydney.

Zoos and wildlife

If your children love animals, they can head to the SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium or the WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo. There are all sorts of animals to get up close and personal with, and places like Taronga Zoo offer experiences like giraffe feeding or adventure course.

You could also head just outside the city to explore the Featherdale Wildlife Park or Symbio Wildlife Park. Few things capture the kids’ imaginations quite like seeing the wonders of the animal kingdom.

The great outdoors

You can’t go wrong with a day at the beach, and there are many family-friendly spots around Sydney. The Coogee Sands hotel and apartments offer outstanding Coogee accommodation right beside the incredible Beach if you want to take a little well-earned break. Activities like swimming, paddle boarding and surfing will keep everyone moving, or you can simply soak up the sun and listen to the sea for some much-needed mental calm.

You could also try a hike along the Glebe Foreshore Walk or at Sydney Park. A short ferry ride from Circular Quay to Manly opens up the possibility of a bike tour. Or a simple picnic at the Royal Botanic Garden or Wendy Whiteley’s Secret Gardens might hit the spot.


Enjoy interactive experiences at the Australian National Maritime Museum or Darling Harbour where there is lots of fun for the whole family. The Powerhouse Museum offers plenty of education and enjoyment relating to space, technology and Aussie history. There are even dinosaurs to meet at the Australian Museum.

For something a little more cultural, the Museum of Contemporary Art has you covered. They often host children’s workshops and family exhibits. And, of course, there is the Sydney Opera House for productions, musicals and other family-friendly performances.

The bottom line

There is no shortage of things to do this Easter school holiday in Sydney – you just need to use your imagination and do your research. Kids are usually happy just to experience new things and be entertained in an engaging, interactive way. The things listed above are just some of the ways you can keep them happy while they are off school!
