5 Fun Breakfast Ideas in Sydney to Get Kids out of Bed

It’s a lazy Sunday, and you’re sick of the family’s usual morning cereal routine. It’s time to shake up your Corn Flakes formula and put something more exciting on your breakfast agenda. Here are 5 ideas that are sure to summon the kids out of bed and kick start your day in an extraordinary way.


1. The Sunrise Breakfast

BYO picnic, frisbee and blanket and head to Bronte Beach. In the early hours of the morning, any vantage point on this beach is a sunrise bonanza. Set up your spread at the south end to see the sun illuminate the rockpool or pick a spot at the north end to watch Bronte and Tamarama come to life with the early light. While you sip on your hot chocolate and snack on your homemade savoury muffins, one thing’s for sure – this is the hot spot for an early morning light show.


2. The Fun Breakfast

Grab your homemade cinnamon bread twists and takeaway coffee or babyccino and get you and your family to the Darling Harbour Children’s Playground. Layout your blanket and munch on your breakfast goodies while your kids have the time of their lives interacting with the array of impressive play areas. Swings, a super slide and a ten-metre-high climbing net are just a few of the fun features on offer. And the excitement doesn’t stop there, in the warmer months, there’s also the incredible water park; who can resist 26 jets spraying water into the air?


3. The Local Breakfast

A visit to Bondi Markets is always a brilliant way to start the day. Each Sunday, from 10am until 4pm, not far from the sands of the iconic Bondi Beach, locals get together to share their wares. In the beachfront grounds of Bondi Beach Public School, you’ll find clothes, handmade jewellery, exotic goods, chic furniture, art, vinyl and vintage pieces, homewares and more. While the kids have a ball hunting for unique treasures, you can seek out delicious breakfast delicacies to eat together on the grass with the ocean breeze on your face.


4. The Unforgettable Breakfast

For a one-of-a-kind brekky, imagine dining with furry marsupials. Breakfast with the Koalas at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is a special experience; eat your hot buffet brekky in the presence of Australia’s most iconic creatures. On Koala Rooftop, between 7.15-9am, every day, enjoy a most memorable meal while your koala pals enjoy munching on their eucalyptus leaves just metres away. Your early morning encounter includes all-day entry and a guided highlights tour of the zoo so you can see the animals when they're most active. It also includes a delicious buffet and an informative koala keeper talk. Top it off with a Koala Photo; have your picture taken close to these fantastic animals.


5. The Home-Sweet-Home Breakfast

Sometimes, everyone wants to stay in their jammies; cosy-up while you cook pancakes together at home. Get the kids involved in mixing and flipping their breakfast fare, then lay out all the toppings on the table: banana, strawberries, maple syrup, yoghurt, Nutella, lemon and sugar. Put on some music and enjoy the spoils of your baking while you have a laugh and chat about the week that was.
