    I wouldn't really bother with the blue mountains. Any of the touristy stuff is really overpriced and it's just views of valleys and trees lol. It's a nice spot, we live at the base of the mountains, but when you're short on time I think the east coast is a way better way to spend your time.

    Thanks! That has helped our decision to just relax around Sydney / beaches.
    Do you recommend any beaches?

    We mostly head to the central coast to go to the beach to avoid Sydney crowds which might be a bit further than you want to travel, like The Entrance, Shelly Beach, Toowoon Bay

    What about Wylies baths?

    Thanks
    I don't know.
    We were meeting a group of friends there so there wasn't an opportunity to go off and find a quieter spot. I just remember it being too crowded to enjoy.

    Darook park need to park on the street, get in early! You will need to walk Down a hill and then back up again. But when tides out you can walk for miles on the flats very good for young ones!

    2bluebirds I thought there is a house called Oprah but I realised it's a typo. Opera house.

    I love the Blue Mountans but I just think the 4 hours travelling (about 2 hours each way) may be a bit full on & tiring. It is beautiful though, the views are spectacular and walking to the first of the 3 sisters is fun, depending on the age of your boys. Riding on the scenic railway is great too. Anyway, I would just be concerned about the 4 hours travelling, if it were closer I'd say go for it.

    But I 100% agree with the Central Coast and especially The Entrance is awesome with kids. There's a little water park and rides plus pelican feeding is fun, it's on everyday at 3.30pm. The beach is great and you can hire a boat or kayak or canoe from the boathouse. There are heaps of places to eat too. It's about a 45min drive from Sydney, so a bit more manageable and it's a nice drive too. http://www.theentrance.org.au/

    I've never been before but I read Jessica Rowe's book and she mentions Nielsen Park
    beach and it sounds great, I can't wait to check it out myself one day. http://www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au/...s/Nielsen-Park

    Anyway, hope you have a great time
