    All fab ideas above

    Just keep in mind I think it's meant to be high 30's almost 40 degrees on the weekend so some indoor options Prob aren't a bad idea.

    Mini Q at Questacon is fab (take a spare outfit as kids always get wet in the water play bit), play up at old Parliament House is great I recently took my 3 year old. Lots to do at Gold Creek village, there's a sweet little ice cream shop there too.

    The NGA has a fantastic new play area (currently Versailles themed) with lots of hands on activities - it's across the road from Questacon so you could do both.

    Dh and I like to go to Koko Black in Civic as a treat. It's good coffee and a chocolate teddy bear pop keeps DS2 happy while we enjoy a moment of peace (can also highly recommend the chocolate Alchemy Gateau ).
    Thank you!
    Boundless looks incredible lol DS would love it there! No escaping is a plus hahaha

    I'll have a look at NGA hands on is DS kinda thing lol

    Oh my! Koko black looks incredible!!! Thanks for the recommendation hehe

    Mini Q at Questacon is always a hit, not too far away is a fish and chip joint called Snapper which is underneath the Yacht Club, the fish is great and there is lots of space to run around.
    We took DS to the reptile zoo last time we were in Canberra for a visit he loved it! Me.. well I'm scared of frogs and goannas haha DS did really love it though.

    Oh I forgot all about cockington green. Haven't been there in years and years. DS might enjoy the aviary as well.

    I didn't know (or remember I guess) about mini q! That looks incredible! DS would go nuts in there lol
    Thanks!!

    That is a very very good point! It is going to be extremely hot. I think mini q is at the top of our list. Oh yes spare clothes! Thanks! I probably would of left majority in the car lol

    Has anyone been to the zoo recently? How long do you think it will take to get around? Obviously allowing time to look at things. I'm just trying to work out a good time to leave home and organise (roughly our afternoon) Takes us about 2 and a half - 3 hours to get there.

    I haven't been there in so many years so have no idea what to expect with the extensions that were done. Is food reasonably priced there?

    We were there about 6 months ago with dd. From memory we spent somewhere between 2 & 3 hours there. We didn't eat there so I'm not sure about food costs, sorry.
