Wet Weather Weekend Plans In Sydney

20 May 2015 13:12:32

Wet Weather Weekend Plans In Sydney

The weather over the weekend is looking a little cloudy and let's be honest, no one wants to be caught out in the rain on their day off! We've got the top 5 things to do in Sydney when it rains.

1. Immortalise your hand in wax

We can't all be part of the elite group we call "the rich and the famous" and get our very own Madame Tussauds Sydney figure (and most of us don't really want to). So… go for second best and make yourself your very own hand made out of wax! At Madame Tussauds Sydney you can make your hands into a love heart to give to your someone special or wax your hand into a peace symbol for your work desk that helps remind you to keep cool and calm!

2. Face your fears

Face your fears at WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo where you can hold a python from 11:45am - 2:45pm. The pythons are cool and soft and so friendly, and so are the staff! WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo is an all-weather attraction so you can have your weekend adventure without getting rained on (or sunburnt for that matter!)

3. Show the rain who is boss and dive in!

If you can't beat it, join it! Don't fight the weather, dive in with

SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium's Shark Reef Snorkel experience where you can get wet and go snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef! Meet the Leopard Sharks, reef sharks and other tropical fishies as you dive in with your friends and family. But if you'd rather stay dry, stay on the surface with SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium's Glass Bottom Boat experience!

4. Shopping in Sydney - Yes please!

Sydney Tower Eye is located in Pitt Street Mall - Westfield Shopping Centre so do yourself a favour, save your pocket from the shopping and take a ride to the very top of the tallest building in Sydney. It's worth it just to wave at the people in the other lifts (seriously, they have cameras and you can wave to people in the other lifts and they can wave back, it is soooo much fun) as you zoom towards the sky!

5. The absolute best thing to do with young kids in Sydney

Have you got young kids who you have to entertain every day of the week AND all weekend? Then Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary is the place for you! Meet their Little Penguin colony and treat the kids to some under the sea inspired play time that is all undercover!

Let's face it, Sydney weather can be unpredictable (despite the forecast) so no matter if it is rain, hail or shine you can still enjoy awesome attractions in some of Sydney's most beautiful locations - Darling Harbour and Manly! So get yourself a Merlin Annual Pass, one of Sydney's best attraction deals, for unlimited entry to Madame Tussauds Sydney, WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo, SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, Sydney Tower Eye and Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary…. PLUS so many more! Or get the popular 5 attractions for $69 deal!
