My Top Ten Playgrounds in the Blue Mountains

By | Uncategorized, Out with Children, Blue Mountains Experience

A visit to the local Playground is one of the best ways to fill in the morning or afternoon with an outdoor activity.

When building this website, I spent approximately 12 months researching and sourcing all the Blue Mountains Playgrounds. I am proud of the detailed and comprehensive directory that we have built.

I wanted this directory to be as informative as possible, so I visited each and every playground to take photos and gather information to create the pages in as much detail as I have. So my children and I have been to each and every one of the 55  Blue Mountains Playgrounds that I have listed.

Based on our experience of these Playgrounds I have chosen a Top 10.

I have listed each below with a little description as to why we like them.

Autumn Bucket List 2019

Autumn is a season of slowing down, savoring, and being more fully present in our everyday. As nature slows down and prepares for deep rest, it gives us permission to do so too. Simple things become moments of joy and as we relish cooler weather and the onset of cosy textures, tastes and smells. There is a contentment to be found as we slow and savor, realising the treasure in what we already have. There are so many things our family relishes during autumn, it really is a feast for the senses and definitely our favourite season. Here is some inspiration for you, i hope you enjoy all the glorious gifts of autumn!

Some families bask in that first hot day of november, knowing that as the day reaches up into the 30’s that it heralds the soon to begin scorching, sublime, summer. I see people quiver with excitement about the beginning of the cricket season, joyfully finding the looses, softest clothing they can and relishing in the knowledge that soon sunny beach days, mangoes and pavlova at christmas will be upon us and then the long days of school holidays begin, pool time in excess, late dinners, the smell of sunscreen and cicada song carrying us into late evening.

Out and About in Lawson

By | Real life, Out with Children, Blue Mountains Experience

If you have not been to Lawson lately…You are missing out.

Lawson has become quite the destination. It really is such a lovely little town, and better yet it has a few things going on for families with children.

We are fortunate enough to live quite close to Lawson so we visit often, and I thought it might inspire some of you if I took you through what an affordable day trip to Lawson could look like for you and your family. Maybe it is just me, but I kinda like looking at how people spend their time as a family…I am always needing inspiration Read More
