2. Kids Cooking Classes

Tired of making dinner? Sit back, relax and let the kids handle it this weekend with 3-hour kids Italian cooking class. Your kids will get to produce fresh pasta and an array of authentic Italian dishes whilst mom and dad explore the Italian wine bars near by.

3. Jurassic World by BRICKMAN.
Did you miss BRICKMAN at Sydney Tower Eye? Don’t miss JURASSIC WORLD by BRICKMAN at the Natural History Museum of Australia this weekend! A life-size Brachiosaurus weighing well over 1.8 tonnes awaits! Encounter incredible models of Triceratops, Velociraptors, and even a T.rex! 

4. Discover Living Fossils!

5. Head Down Under
And if you’re feeling brave, why not combine and save! Head down under to the Aussie outback of WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo and come eye-to-eye with a 4.5m saltwater crocodile.

6. Holey Moley.
Feeling competitive? Head over to Holey Moley in Darlinghurst for a trip down memory lane with Holey-Moley’s unique and comforting nostalgic vibe. Guaranteed to be the craziest round of mini golf you’ve ever played.
