It is easier said than done to get ‘Out of the Nest’ isn’t it. It is my goal to try and make it just a little bit easier.

I thought I would compile some ideas for local Day trips that you can do as a family.

I have looked at several suburbs in our beautiful Blue Mountains and included all my favourite places to visit when I am there.

I have based my inspiration on Places to Eat, Play, Walk, Shop and any extras I can think of.

Most destinations have the option of public transport which in itself can make the trip more fun for the kids.

Some of these ideas are simple, maybe geared to a mid week trip with young children. Others are more involved, filling out a whole day. Hopefully something for everyone.

Some of my favourite places to explorein the mid mountains, a less touristy destination but still lots of family friendly  places to enjoy.


Wentworth Falls


Some of my favourite places to explore in the upper mountains.

Amongst some the more tourist driven places are some smaller gems to experience.



I truely hope this helps you guys.

Let me know if I have missed anything.

A day with the kids does not need to be big and expensive. But a well planned day out, with parents that are less stressed will likely equal a more enjoyable time together right? so I hope I have been able to help with that.

Though its quite the juggling act, and balls do drop ALOT, so I am happy to talk about that too. xx
