We are always on the hunt for FUN things to do with the whole family that a little different. Check out these super cool activities in Sydney that everyone is sure to enjoy…
Journey to an icy wilderness this summer at the Maritime Museum with the new family exhibition Arctic Voices. Pounce, hop and crawl through animal life in the Arctic, come face-to-face with a polar bear and travel with scientists to catch and tag whales.
The Arctic is a place of rapid change and despite its seemingly remote location, it is connected to us all. What affects the Arctic in turn affects the whole planet. Arctic Voices uses interactive experiences, photos, videos and real specimens to convey that the Arctic is more than just snow. It is home to people and a surprising diversity of wildlife.
Afterwards check out the fascinating 3D film Wonders of the Arctic and enjoy icy cool creative activities during school holidays, including a live theatre show, workshops, craft and dress-up sessions and tours for toddlers.

Escape Hunt Experience:
Calling all family detectives! If you love doing challenging things as a family (ages 7+), solving mysteries and consider yourself a ‘super sleuth’, then The Escape Hunt Experience is just what you’re after!
Escape Hunt is Australia’s most original and exhilarating real live interactive escape room experience. Teams of up to five people are locked in a room for 60 minutes and must find clues, crack puzzles and solve the crime before time runs out! It’s non-stop, adrenalin pumping, brain activity at its best!
Escape Hunt is conveniently located centrally in all major cities across Australia – including Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Perth and Adelaide. The attraction is perfect for tourists, family groups (ages 7+), birthday parties, school groups, corporate team building and much more. Open all year round, it’s a great activity anytime and is especially popular to escape the heat or wet weather.

Sydney Harbour Tall Ships: where old world charm meets modern-day Sydney.
Take a historic cruise onboard our authentic timber tall ships and step back in time as we take you on a tour around beautiful Sydney Harbour. Experience the old-world charm of our traditional vessels – feel the breeze as we sail down the harbour. Better yet, have a go at helming the ship – turning the wheel or help set sail! If you are feeling more like watching on, there are plenty of vantage points to get a good photo. Make sure you have your cameras ready to capture your memorable moments with family and friends.
See some of the famous landmarks along the way, such as the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Harbour Bridge, Fort Denison, Taronga zoo and hear stories about them that many Sydneysiders don’t know! If you’re looking for something fun and exciting for the whole family or just relaxing with your friends come along on one of our cruises, we have something for everyone!
Our vessels are child friendly, safe and suitable for all children and adults alike.
