Free kids entertainment at Sydney's Hyde Park on Australia Day.
There are an abundance of free, family friendly activities to enjoy both in the city, as well as in selected Sydney suburbs on Australia Day. Where do you take your family on Australia Day? Hyde Park? Parramatta? To the fireworks at Darling Harbour?
We generally stay locally and enjoy a family BBQ at Clontarf Reserve. There are free barbecues, a great kiosk and plenty of room to spread out. It is also ideal on a hot day, as you can swim on the beach. It's a good idea to get there early, as it can get busy on the weekends and on special holidays like Australia day.
