Why engage with your Child and Family Health Nurse Service?

Day trip Inspiration in the Blue Mountains

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.
