With a baby carrier, you can head almost anywhere. The beaches in Sydney are lively throughout the year and packed with families and kids. Enjoy a coffee, watch the surfers hitting the waves, enjoy fish and chips under the sun, or walk along the beach. Parasols are recommended, as well as sunscreen, as the sun in Sydney is extremely strong. It is important to look for the red, yellow or green flags if you are swimming as the waves and current of the Pacific Ocean can be dangerous for both little ones and adults.
There are a variety of walks around Sydney and some great picnic areas. Small little walks are good for the little ones and make you feel like you’re out in the bush when you’re really only a few kilometers from the city.
Casual dining in Sydney is largely child-friendly. Cafés and restaurants usually try to do all they can to be accommodating. Most have high chairs and outside seating if you have a pram. Cafés may have a change area but it’s hit-or- miss. Bars and pubs typically don’t have change rooms.
You may not always get a kids menu, but you will always find a babycino (just frothy milk with chocolate sprinkles or some marshmallows but it’s nice to keep the baby busy!). Pubs are more likely to have a dedicated kids menu. Brunch times are probably better than dinner given the time, but most dinner places are just as accommodating.
