Day trip to Bilpin

By | Uncategorized, Out with Children, Blue Mountains Experience, Supporting Blue Mountains

We all know that the recent fire season has had a really big effect on local Blue Mountains businesses. So, how can we help? We can visit!

We recently took a drive out to Bilpin because I wanted to see the land and how it had been affected. I also wanted to show our support to the local businesses who have taken a big hit. I thought it also might be helpful to write a blog showing a few of the places we love to visit so that you too might consider making trip with the family.

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.

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!
