Sydney is 'great for kids'

Article content

20 January 2010

Holidaymakers looking for the best world city to take their kids to should look towards Sydney, Australia, according to one expert.

Eva Hogan, travel writer for Suite 101, named the numerous potential outings which could keep young children occupied on a trip abroad, including Luna Park, which is an "old-school themed" amusement arcade located in the city.

Modelled on New York City's Coney Island, the park is situated by the iconic Harbour Bridge and features dodgems, a ferris wheel and a wooden rollercoaster.

Taronga Zoo was also described by Ms Hogan as "one of the most impressive" animal parks in the country and perfect for kids.

"Perched uphill overlooking the stunning harbour, the zoo occupies a spectacular setting amidst 28 hectares of bush land. Kids will love the Sky Safari which carries visitors up to the zoo," she explained.

Macquarie Airports recently said that holidays to Sydney could be becoming more popular, with air travel figures for October 2009 showing that the city's central facility saw passenger traffic leap by six per cent to 3.1 million, compared to the same month in 2008.
