School holidays can be a lot of things, and one thing they can be is expensive. Endless movies or shows or experiences to keep little people busy that costs lots of money. But I always try to find things for my family to enjoy that doesn't involve breaking the bank.
This summer I was trawling through the internet and came across the living museums site for Sydney and decided that a trip into the Rocks Discovery Museum was in order. It's a free museum with lots to see and learn about or colonial past and even has free tours to the dig site of an infamous convict butcher who settled in the rocks in the 1800s. It was great and the kids loved it. The cobblestone lanes, the old world architecture, the imagination of what it would have been like back then. Love it.
We decided to kill two birds with one stone and we caught the train to Milsons Pt and then walked across the Harbour Bridge. Something I fondly remember doing as a child on my school holidays.
So if your up for an adventure these holidays check out the museums around Sydney. They are a wealth of fun and information, as is exploring out beautiful city.
