    Ok, so 6 nights, probably won't do shopping.
    5 full days.
    We would like to explore at least 2 beaches, see city (harbour bridge and Oprah house), maybe blue mountains, take ferri across (to Manly or Zoo)...not sure what else
    ;-)

    We tend to stay away from the bigger beaches.
    Bronte is great if you don't have kids.

    Balmoral beach in Mosman is a favourite of ours because it's so child friendly.
    Very calm water for the kids and plenty of shade under the trees which isn't a million miles away from the waters edge.
    There's a coffee shop and playground there too.
    I would go as early as possible though, it gets hectic and parking is the hardest once you hit a certain time.
    We usually get there around 8 and find a car park a few streets away so we don't have to pay the parking fees.
    DH drops us off and he walks back.
    Easy peasy, even when DD was a newborn.

    Also, the zoo is just a stones throw away.
    If you're keen you could do both in one day

    I would highly recommend getting to the zoo when it opens, 930 i think. The animals are being fed and the seal show is worth getting there to line up for. Gorilla feeding awesome too. Check zoo website for times.

    Doesn't Bronte have a pool overlooking the beach scenery? Would that be worth a visit?

    What about Wylies baths?

    Thanks

    Bronte has a pool on the right hand side and there's a calm part of the ocean beside it which is blocked by rocks. Heaps of kids there.
    But I second balmoral beach, great for kids.

    Thanks! I'll make a list.
    I'm still not sure about the Blue Mountains...

    Yes all close together. When standing at circ quay you can see both harbour bridge and opera house.
