    I'd forget about blue mountains and take advantage of the good weather.
    Neilson park is lovely, great walking tracks and calm waters, great for kids.

    All the eastern suburbs beaches are great but can get very busy and parking can be an issue. An alternative is heading to the Cronulla beaches in the Sutherland shire.

    Bundeena in the royal national park is also amazing

    Ferry to manly is a must do.

    No! It's was hot and 30 today and tomorrow is meant to be hot and 38! I think it's supposed to rain at the end of the week

    I'm sorry to crash the thread @2BlueBirds but we're coming from rural WA and having six nights in Sydney in January. Very nerve wracking but very exciting!

    Balmoral is lovely. Highly recommend.

    I personally don't like the eastern suburbs beaches, way too crowded and touristy. Are you staying in Coogee? It's less crowded than Bondi or bronte, and maroubra is also a nice alternative to the more touristy Bondi..

    The Central coast beaches are beautiful, and it's a very laid back vibe up there but i don't see the value of staying in Sydney only to travel to Central Coast to go to the beach.. You may as well pay less to stay in the central coast to begin with.. While Sydney does have some beautiful beaches, and not many crowded ones.

    Northern beaches are lovely too but they are a bit far from the city/Coogee (sorry, I assume you're staying in Coogee but correct me if I'm wrong). They are also (in my opinion) less child friendly as the surf is a lot rougher. But if you're thinking of northern beaches, I like Mona vale beach. It has a sea water pool right on the sand, and there's a nice playground across the road. Dee why beach is also nice and there's lots of cafes and restaurants there. Reminds me a lot of terrigal beach in the central coast.

    Palm beach is nice but it's so out of the way to drive... But I think you can take a ferry there from circular quay, so that might be a nice day trip.

    Non-beach activities:

    Darling harbour - there's a big outdoor water park that's free to use.

    Botanical gardens

    Australian museum - they have interesting exhibitions and stuff for kids.

    The rocks

    I second the ferry to bundeena you'll love it.

    As a Sydney sider I went for a drive to the central coast we were going to buy there. After visiting we were disappointed. A bit less to do there than we thought. If your only staying for a short while please advise us of the suburb your staying in and we can advise u and give you travel times
