Best Things To Do in Sydney With A Baby

Have baby, will travel. In Sydney, the options are (almost!) endless, thanks to this fun list of baby-friendly activities from beaches to indoor attractions.

Fun With Aussie Animals

For an unforgettable family experience, why not have Breakfast with Koalas? Every morning, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo offers a yummy hot buffet on Koala rooftop – right beside the cute round fuzzies resting on trees. There’ll be an expert keeper talk, plus a unique Koala Photo opportunity to show off to Granny and Gramps. Did we mention it’s free for your babe in arms if they’re under 3?

The breakfast ticket also includes a highlights tour of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo before the crowds arrive at general opening time. Whether your tiny tot snoozes throughout or giggles adorably at bouncing kangaroos – enjoy your peaceful stroll through displays of Australia’s favourite animals at their most active. And yes, the entire attraction is pram-friendly! Plus, there are clean on-site changing facilities. 

If at any moment, baby needs a break, pause at one of the many daily feed and talk times throughout the day. From storytime to Lorikeet feeds, it’s easy to relish the joys of early parenthood at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo.

A Dreamy Underwater World

Another fun attraction suitable for all ages is SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium. Roam about spectacular marine life exhibits as the ocean twinkles and 13,000 fish swim around you. Perhaps hold your tiny tot up to the glass, as you point at majestic turtles and colourful coral fish. Even though there might be silly faces in return, all these sights are valuable early learnings for little sponge brains.

Like WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium is pram-friendly, has changing facilities, and babies under 3 enter for free!

The ‘I’m in Sydney’ Moment

Venture up 250 metres above ground level to take in sparkly views of Sydney at Sydney Tower Eye. It’s the city’s tallest building! The unrivalled 360-degree sights, from the Blue Mountains to the East Coast, is well worth the stopover and an excellent opportunity for a family photo.

Pretty Picnic Adventures

Pack a delicious picnic and enjoy simple, imaginative play at the Royal Botanic Gardens. There are hectares of soft, grassy spots to call your own for the afternoon. Up for a gentle ride? Board the Choo Choo Express to tick off the best scenes the Garden has to offer. Along the way, a guide shares fascinating facts so Mum and Dad can learn a thing or two.

Beautiful Baby-Friendly Beaches

Is it time for Baby’s first ocean dip? Sydney has many baby-friendly coastlines. Local families love Parsley Bay, Balmoral Beach and Little Manly Cove thanks to their calm atmosphere, shady spots and safe surf.

Play With Other Friendly Faces

The popular Bondi Beach Playground is great fun for children of all ages, even those who can’t walk yet. It’s fenced, so those curious feet won’t wander too far! Bring out the giggles at the shaded sandpit and baby swings. What else is in it for parents? Incredible views of one of the most famous beaches in the world.
