If you are looking at doing something fun during school holidays and especially if the weather is not the best, then venture out to Darling Harbour's new attraction Madame Tussauds. Located between Sydney Aquarium and The Wildlife Park, this is definitely a must visit museum.
According to the Madame Tussauds behind the scenes documentary, making each wax figurines takes over 800 hours of moulding, measuring, painting and sculpting. Danii Minogue's figurine took 60 people over 3 months to complete!
During school holidays, all kids are also given an interactive discovery map and pencil, so they can navigate their way around the attraction and fill in interesting facts. At the end each child receives a sticker for their effort.
If you book your tickets online, you can save between 10% to 30% and if you book combination tickets which include other attractions such as Sydney Aquarium, Wild Life Sydney, Sydney Tower Eye and Manly Sea Life Sanctuary, you can save up to $250!
You can get to Darling Harbour by Ferry from Circular Quay, by Train and walk from either Town Hall or Wynyard Station, by Monorail, by Bus – Stop No 24 on the City Sightseeing Hop On Hop Off Bus or by Car and park at either 100 Murray Street, Pyrmont or at The Entertainment Centre. Get your parking ticket validated at Wildlife Park (located next to Madame Tussauds) and you only pay $12 for the whole day!
Went to Madame Toussauds on Monday, 8th April 2013 - was great plenty of great photos taken up close & personal - lots of fun! Seniors special and student concessions available - the Sydney exhibit is celebrating their 1st year in a couple of days time - should be exciting.
